Maxwell Sterling is a composer, producer, musician and artist, originally from Manchester. Maxwell’s debut record Hollywood Medieval (Death of Rave, 2016) set out his fascination with the glitches between the traditions of acoustic and synthesized music. His album Turn of Phrase (AD93, 2021) takes inspiration from both Gregorian chants and hyper-modern digital processing and synthesis. Most recently in early 2022, his EP with Martha Skye Murphy, Distance on Ground (American Dreams, 2022) was released; a tape comprised of two long tracks focusing on the immediacy of musical communication.
Stephen McLaughlin is a multidisciplinary artist with a long history in the creative industry specialising in video installations for global brands and festivals as well as releasing music as An Trinse and TFT.
Wojciech Rusin is a Polish-born audio visual artist based in London. He draws inspiration from alchemical and gnostic texts, early renaissance choral music and Eastern European mythologies. He released Syphon LP on ad93 in 2022 and The Funnel LP on Akashic Records in April 2019. He designs and makes 3D-printed reed instruments, reworking ancient designs with contemporary 3D modelling technologies.
Jo Hellier is an artist working with voice, dance and installation. Her practice utilises improvisation, increasing awareness in the body and training the imagination to create performance as a medium through which the non-human world speaks. Her work is conceptually driven & political through its process, always collaborative and ecologically minded. Her performance work has been commissioned by Artsadmin, Jerwood, SPILL, Bristol Biennial, Buzzcut and Battersea Arts Centre, among others.
ecolagbohrsac2021 is an organization dedicated to the study and governance of the cumulus of transient folklore that underlie the fabric of research in meta-worldbuilding and tracing the origins of various virtualities embedded into the contemporary society through the digital. In doing so, the council utilizes Darknet curation markets of music production —in the style of occulted grime, medieval speedcore and horse-riding ambient— and cryptoeconomics, apparatuses that process signs, recompilation and pseudepigraphy, philosophy of the mind, research in artificial intelligence, hyperreality, quantum physics, textual divinations and sonic experimentation. It’s been founded by a pariah from a secret guild [after an ancient deal has been broken] in a sacred place capable of representing.
