For more than 30 years, Michael Peters has explored the world looking for new sounds.  Most of his musical output veers from the mainstream and has been difficult to categorize.  The renowned WIRE magazine has reviewed two of his albums in their “Outer Limits” section,  which says it all. Michael’s main instrument is the guitar – he studied with renowned guitarist,  Robert Fripp and also is influenced by guitarists David Torn, Eivind Aarset, and Fred Frith.  He extends the guitar using electronic effects, midi, and livelooping techniques. He has played  in avant rock and open improvisational groups. He also has experimented with sampling and  cutting up random FM radio broadcasts to use as elements in live improvisation.

Classical trained pianist and keyboardist, Fabio has played in many bands and worked in many  different musical contexts, developing a distinctive kind of sound. His music can be defined as  classical, minimal, ambient, experimental and it ranges from atmospheric film style soundtracks  to minimalism, from soundscapes to a dark-glitchy ambient music. It’s not a “focused listening”,  neither a pure “wallpaper” type of music, rather it bridges this gap neatly, allowing the listener  the choice to be either transported or remain grounded depending on the mood of the day.  Technically music is played and looped, electronically recycled and treated on the fly in a constant  balance between improvisation and pre-composed musical ideas. That’s achieved recurring to  “live looping”, a technic that allows a musician to “clone” himself and interact with his own music  in real time.

LiveLooping music is a way of extending your musical possibilities without resorting to the use of  pre-recorded or pre-programmed material. Sounds can be layered, altered, mixed and edited as the  music is performed. andy butler produces a wide range of sounds from his guitar by use of special  techniques, and by electronic modification. Melodies, rhythms and a whole range of distinctive guitar  and ‘non-guitar’ tones.

Georgina creates instant choirs of sound, often in an hypnotic style. The point of this music is not  only to captivate with extraordinary timing, harmonic and melodic style but also to help the listener  to relax. The pace of the music can be slow and is set to help the listener relax. The compositions  are mostly restful instil and intellectually they adher to some modernist principles but using harmonious  parameters, instead of dissonance. The type of sound world Georgina produces is also a great vehicle  for more experimental work and social comment.
