Flange Zoo

Flange Zoo is a troop of mythical musical animals who emerged 1 April 2012, and have plundered the multi-sphere since. They project endless warnings for human-kind using multi-effects, Stylophone, Theremin, hand designed ‘Tube-Fox’ Didgeridoo and more. Their performances are accompanied by animations from the Notorious PRG. Flange Zoo’s earthly forms are Tiger Gnome (Calum F. Kerr), Lotan the Destroyer (Phillip Raymond Goodman) and Kitsune Tsukai (Miyuki Kasahara).
In 2017 Flange Zoo appeared at The Harp Restrung in Folkestone, and convened gatherings at Vinyl Deptford and The Beehive in London. They have performed at Café Oto Project Space, New River Studios, Old Church Stoke Newington, MKII, Rio Cinema (London), Voodoo Hopscotch (Folkestone) Thee Sunday Sonics (St Leonards/Hastings). They have released many recordings, most recently Theresa Mayfly / DupDupDupdmensional (June 2017). Photo by Alexander Braxell.

Isn’tses

Isn’tses is a collaborative project between Listen Lisse and Cementimental. The duo perform wearing costumes and Mexican wrestling masks, using live video projections and illuminated props. They deliver a spontaneous and improvised performance using theatrical style interaction with their with their self-built synths, noise boxes, circuit bent toys and vocals. Their music conjures themes such as paganism, political anger, intergalactic heroism and a parody of popular culture.

During the last year Isn’tses have played at Woodland Gathering, Liminality (Beyond the Threshold), Baba Yaga’s Hut, Bunker Theatre, Sotu Festival Amsterdam, Supernoise and Superperformance Festivals in Denmark. In London the duo appeared at Dronica, Hundred Years Gallery, Café Oto, Gallery 46 and AVDepot2 among others. They have released live and studio recordings as hand-crafted cassette editions including the studio recording “Ultimate Problem of Documentation” and “Attic Sessions” which was recorded at Islington Mill, Manchester. They were recorded live at Woodland Gathering by Impa TV.

Pranic Attack

Pranic Attack subconsciously stems from a genetically hybridised human-insectoid combination and ever evolving audio-visual experiment composed of Janine A’Bear and Steven McInerney (Merkaba Macabre). Existing outside of the hive mind, the duo bring forth a giant life force swarm of sonic, non-newtonian synthesis concocted via live modular and experimental vocal electronics. Continually shedding new skins, Pranic Attack delivers a cacophonous cocoon of stroboscopic ear worm sequences synced with critter-like projections to feast upon and metamorphose to.
