More details

Pete Furniss (clarinet, bass clarinet, electronics) presents a set of new and recent work with live electronics, including music by Richard Dudas (US) Martin Parker (UK) and Andrew May (US). Pete is currently supported by the AHRC on a doctoral research programme at the ECA. His work explores the relationships between human presences, machine intervention and considerations of space in a live performance environment, and asks questions about presence, agency and perception in music making as a whole.

KBV  [Know Us By Our Velocity]

They can often be heard playing in Edinburgh venues, particularly the co-founded Sonic Warehouse,  a forum for new music where they regularly perform themselves, curate workshops and host other artists.
