Five artists exploring live digital music in a variety of ways: live coding, modern conjuring, minimal electronics.
Algobabez: Joanne Armitage and Shelly Knotts
Leslie Deere
Reloc: (Lucia H. Chung and Martin Thompson)

ALGOBABEZ have been blasting eardrums with incorrigibly industrial synth-driven algo-pop since 2016. Formed of algo-regulars Shelly Knotts and Joanne Armitage, they use SuperCollider to code and control patterns of weird, wonky, noisy, thumping, danceable music. OK apart, but better together: 2 babes, 2 laptops and 1 sound. Twitter: @algobbz

Leslie Deere is a UK based artist. Commissions include sound installations for Kew Gardens, SoundUK and Sound and Music. In 2018 Leslie has exhibited at FORTHWITH New Music and Art Festival (Winnipeg CA), Tramway Gallery, Track One (Nashville, TN) and N4 Gallery (Berlin). Leslie is a current PhD student at the Glasgow School of Art looking at affect and altered states through AV performance in VR.

Reloc is a collaborative project between Lucia H Chung (en creux) and sm-ll label founder Martin J Thompson (Pokk!, Typeface), who are the duo behind minimal ambient project Mimosa Moize (Dragon’s Eye Recording, murmur records Japan). Expanding their previous interests in micro patterns in ambient sounds, Reloc explore rhythmical and performative structures, often constructed and shaped by pulse waves.
