{Spontaneous Predictions] explores the intrinsic elements within the act of improvisation in a live  performance situation, where a complex interconnected process of actions and reactions takes place within and between the performers, the systems and their immediate environments.

This event showcases live performances from experimental and electronic musicians Luciano Maggiore, Michael Speers and a new collaborative project lu:wn between Dawn Scarfe and Lucia H Chung. The evening presents new works from these artists renowned for their creative interests in the performativity, perception and at-times obscurity from musical acts, the relationship between natural and synthetic sound materials, resonance within acoustic and electronic systems. 


Luciano Maggiore

Michael Speers


Luciano Maggiore

Luciano Maggiore is a Palermo-born, London-based musician whose work is characterised by the use of speakers and several analogue/digital devices (samplers, CD players, walkmans, tape recorders) and addresses the performativity of the musical act, the perception of it, and the obscurity that emanates from it.

His main interests include mechanisms of sound diffusion, performance, repetition, endurance, non-human animal languages, dance, folklore.

With Louie Rice, he started NO-PA/PA-ON, a project that deals with performing score-based works, both acoustic and amplified.

His works are published by Balloon & Needle, Boring Machines, Consumer Waste, Hideous Replica, Kohlhaas, Palustre, Senufo editions, 1000Füssler, TakuRoku, Triscele Registrazioni and Tulip records.

Michael Speers

Michael Speers (b. 1992) is an artist and musician from Northern Ireland currently based in London.

He works with natural & synthetic sound material in live performance, installation and electronic composition. He is currently focused on the actual and notional representation of the ground drum.

xtr’ctn – an album of synthetic listening environments is published by C.A.N.V.A.S.

Collaborating with Paul Abbott as yPLO—the duo uses real & imaginary drums towards the realisation of a speculative drum kit.

lu:wn (Lucia H Chung+Dawn Scarfe)

lu:wn – a collaborative project between Dawn Scarfe and Lucia H Chung exploring resonance within acoustic and electronic systems.

Lucia H Chung

LC performs and releases music under the alias ‘en creux’ where the sound creation springs from their fascinations in noise generated via feedback on digital and analogue equipment, and their role as a ‘mediator-performer’ in the multifaceted relationship between the sonic events incurring within the self-regulated system.

Dawn Scarfe

DS makes sound installations and remote performances tuning into acoustic things such as ‘listening glasses’. Explores fragile connections. Collaborations include live exchanges with B-PLOT (as motion_sensing) and Jiyeon Kim (as du hwal – two bows).
