The Howling

Ken Hollings and Howlround.
The Howling is a collaborative project started by writer Ken Hollings and sound artist Howlround devoted exclusively to their shared love of text, audiotape and trash aesthetics. An intense collision of spoken word and tape effects, the Howling’s first performance took place at the Iklectik in September 2019. Since then, the duo has been working together online developing new material and techniques. This is only their second performance, so don’t expect too much from them.

Ken Hollings is a writer and broadcaster. His work has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, and he has written and presented critically acclaimed features for BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4 and Resonance 104.4 FM. His books include Welcome to MarsThe Bright LabyrinthThe Space Oracle and Inferno all available from Strange Attractor/MIT Press. His latest book, Purgatory, is due from them in Spring 2022.

Howlround, AKA Robin The Fog, is a sound designer, radio producer, audio archivist, educator and occasional DJ. His work falls under the broad term “radiophonics” and includes composition, sound installation, field recording and documentary. Originally described as a ‘second wave hauntologist’, his current obsession is attempting to use closed-input feedback loops to create primitive techno, which is quite a long way from where he started.
