Bristol based group, Tara Clerkin Trio, is made up of Tara Clerkin and brothers Pat Benjamin and Sunny Joe Paradisos. Inspired by the ‘Howling Owl’ era, a time when musical experimentation took Bristol by storm, the trio delved separately into many corners of music in various different projects experimenting with alternating genres from punk and space rock right through to electronica and alt folk.
However, the trio finally came together to make experimental group Tara Clerkin Trio, creating a concoction of jazz, hip hop, electronica, psychedelia & classical music where they drift from dubby minimalism right through to smudged acid jazz, taking noises from the world around them along the way.
Ellen Arkbro is a Berlin-based sound artist and composer from Stockholm. Arkbro’s work includes music in just intonation for acoustic instruments, as well as algorithmic works for synthesised tones. After undergoing studies in the theory and practice of tuning with La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela in New York, and with Marc Sabat in Berlin, she is now pursuing her own work with harmonic sound in a tradition of tuning which she shares with her teachers. Arkbro released ‘for organ and brass’ on Subtext Recordings, a collection of recordings of her just intonation compositions for renaissance organ, horn, trombone and microtonal tuba.
