Leafcutter John

Original nature footage with a live-electronic and vocal score – a contemplative visual and sonic environment reflecting the unpredictability and strength of the natural world.

“Alongside Aphex Twin and Bogdan Raczynski- he’s one of the UK’s most fearlessly inventive electronicists” Time Out.

plus Nathan Jones

with reflexive visual accompanyment from pattern-based artist Scott Spencer, and a lush soundtrack by Carl Brown, this poetic performance weaves new and old poems, and biographical and philosohpical information into a complex and considered whole.
