KUBOV (Jess Aslan + Emma Lloyd)

Kubov are  hosting a night featuring interactive software/violin/synths to launch new music from a recent residency. Featuring guests Lauren Sarah Hayes (vox/synths/software) + Dara Tef (AV noise/silence)


Jess Aslan

Jess Aslan (Xica) is a musician working with synths, computers and all the bits in between. Loves collaboration, very lucky to work with lots of different musicians from varying genres/communities/spaces. Research includes discussion on performance using instruments combined with computers, algorithmic composition, practicalities of computer music and music tech education for all.

Emma Lloyd

Emma is a violinist and violist specialising in the performance of experimental contemporary music and improvisation. She performs as a soloist and in small ensembles, working often with live electronics, and collaborating regularly with composers. In addition to the modern set-up, she plays a baroque violin and performs both baroque and contemporary music written specifically for this instrument.

 Lauren Sarah Hayes

 Lauren Sarah Hayes is a Scottish musician and sound artist who builds and performs with hybrid analogue/digital instruments. She is a “positively ferocious improvisor” (Cycling ‘74), her music refusing to sit nicely between free improv, experimental pop, techno, and noise. Over the last decade she has developed and honed a deliberately challenging and unpredictable performance system that explores the relationships between bodies, sound, environments, and technology. The Wire described her most recent album MANIPULATION (pan y rosas discos) as “skittering melodies and clip-clopping rhythms suggesting a mischievous intelligence emerging from this web of wires”

Dara Etefaghi

Dara’s work is developed across audio-visual art, video games and cinema. His work aims to question the medium and the context in which contemporary audio-visual art is active, considering the cultural consumption of art in a technological age. ‘AP:Bonding’ is an audio-visual piece that is part of a larger project currently under development. Centring upon a fictional virtual world, it aims to create a model that abstracts reality, a schizophrenic simulation of a generative system.
