Hannah Ellul is a Manchester-based artist and musician working across forms, primarily in text, performance and video.
[Much of Ellul’s work starts from an interest in radical political imagination and the affective dimension of collectivity, in relation to overlooked histories or as explored in games and contingent formations. In recent work she has developed collaboratively-written texts through performance.]
With Ben Knight she is part of the collaborative project Psykick Dancehall, exploring sound across media: the politics of listening, recording technologies and the voice. Since 2010 they have produced DANCEHALL, a journal about sound and its others. She makes music as 1/3 of Human Heads and 1/2 of White Death. Currently coming to the end of a PhD at Goldsmiths, London, she graduated from the MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 2010.
John Macedo is a sound artist and performer from London. He has a pluralistic approach which reveals the ephemeral and hidden potential in all sounds, environments and technologies, often in intimate, immersive and intuitive ways. He performs live solo and has collaborated with artists including Phil Julian, John Butcher, Graham Dunning, Tom White, Michael Speers, and Artur Vidal, to name a few. He has had work released by Hideous Replica, Sound Holes, Beartowns Records as well as small run and object editions on his own label, The Black Plume Editions.
Jack James (b. 1985) is an artist interested in events, happenings and the role of media in everyday life and culture. Often featuring domestic technologies (re)positioned to explore their relationship with people, Jack’s work traverses the fields of sound and social practice, through installation and performance.
Jack is part of artist’s collective thickear with whom he created Ministry of Measurement, Pink Sheet Method and initiated the Data and Ethics Working Group at ICT & Art Connect 2013, Brussels. Which lead a to string of European engagements including Experiment #2 Consent exhibited at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam. Past solo appearances include opening SPILL Festival of Performance 2012, monomania, BEAM: Brunel Electronic & Analogue Music Festival, Wysing Arts Centre, Barbican Centre and Rushgrove House. During a recent residency with Metal in Peterborough Jack received support from Arts Council England to create Temporary Local Broadcast and convene the Capturing the “REAL” – in response to the ‘subject’ symposium.
