Some cutting-edge creative music is being offered again as part of Music at Bishops House. As part of their UK tour, Innercity and Modulator ESP will be visiting Sheffield to play a sepcial concert for us. Supporting will be Sheffield’s own Martin Archer and Nick Robinson. The date will be Saturday 11th May.
Innercity is the grey child of Hans Dens, from Antwerp, Belgium, prodigiously translating his vision journeys to auditory dream-language since 2008. Early releases are mostly experiments on the influence of various psychoactive substances, released under different moniker on Dens’ cassette-label Why So Serious? (2008-2010).
Since February 2013 HD teamed up with Bart (Youngherr) Sloow to be able to perform as a full blown psychedelic rock outfit. The duo has since recorded a 7″ for Great Pop Supplement’s offspring DEEP DISTANCE and a full album called ‘Return Of The Solar Falcons”, to be released on cassette by Sloow Tapes for the upcoming May/June concerts. The duo blends a violent share of “standard” Innercity, spontaneous prog rock simulation and oriental mysticist dada. To be an experiential and psychedelic live experience
Modulator ESP produces improvised experimental soundscapes using synthesizers, sampling, sequencing, looping and processing to create strange worlds of sound somewhere between ’70s space music, noise and dark ambient drone. He produces a fortnightly show at electro-music.com called Adventures In Sound, improvising an hour of live music for each episode, all of which are available to download.
He has supported acts as diverse as Emeralds, The Freemen brothers, Formication, Circulus, Eli Keszler, Paul Nagle, Muscletusk, Radio Massacre International, Wolfram der Spyra, Stellar Om Source and Bernhard Wöstheinrich. He has headlined several small US tours culminating in performances at the electro-music festival, the highlight of one attendance was a collaborative performance with the late Richard Lainhart. He has performed in Holland at the e-day festival as part of Booth & Creek.
Nick Robinson has been playing his own brand of looped, treated and improvised guitar for nearly twenty years, releasing many CDs and tracks for the Chain-Tape Collective. Martin Archer is well-known to all lovers of challenging and richly diverse music, released via his own Discus label. They will be performing as a duo for the first time, although they have been together in various ensemble performances over the years.
