Teddy Hunter, Beresford/Hammond, Peiriant, Jenn Kirby - HAY NAWR

Join us for the first NAWR Experimental Music Night in Hay!

Teddy Hunter's work focuses on the relationship between sound, architecture and environment. A combination of sound, film and photography are used throughout her practice to create audio-visual artworks and installations.

Cardiff based sound artist working in electronic music and soundscapes. With a background in sonic arts and a large interest in ambisonics, environmental and special sound, Teddy Hunter's music takes you through an immersive ambient journey. Each song allows you to fall into a daydream whilst the music builds up of looped, ethereal vocals and a gentle fluxus of synthesized melodies. Teddy Hunter also runs a local electronic music night called Electric Soup and is studying a Masters in Creative Music Practice.

Charlie Beresford: Acoustic guitar/piano Sonia Hammond: Cello

Acoustic improvising duo Charlie Beresford (acoustic guitar/piano) and Sonia Hammond (cello) are both based in the Welsh Marches and they met whilst working with the Radnor Improvisers, an improvising group which they are founding members of. Their first album 'The Science of Snow' was born when the two found themselves at a loose end due to a cancelled studio session and used the opportunity to record some duo improvisations together just to see where it would go.

Peiriant are an experimental duo performing with electric guitar, violin and found objects. The mood ranges from minimalism, drone, post-rock to soundscape, spoken word and noise. Rose Pearl and Dan Linn are Swansea-born musicians who have performed and composed music together for over a decade. Their style takes influences from folk, minimalism, classical, sound art and rock. Their eponymously titled debut album has recently been released through Bandcamp.

Dr Jenn Kirby is a composer, performer, lecturer and music technologist. She teaches music technology and composition at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Her output includes contemporary instrumental composition, electroacoustic music, sound art, noise music, laptop orchestra performance, musical theatre and solo live electronics. Jenn is very active in the performance of electronic music as a performer and a software developer. She builds software and re-purposes games controllers as musical interfaces to create and perform theatrical live electronic music.
