Born in Lima, Peru, Maria Chávez is known as an abstract turntablist, DJ and key figure in the global Sound Art and Experimental Music scene. Accidents, coincidence and failures are themes that unite her sound sculptures, installations and other works with her solo turntable performance practice. Maria wrote her first book on her unique approach to abstract turntablism in 2012 titled, OF TECHNIQUE: Chance Procedures on Turntable, a book of essays and illustrations that guide the novice turntablist to explore the world of needles and vinyl through the lens of deterioration, destruction and the unexpected. Her work has been presented globally at numerous galleries, museums and festivals.
Bluff Aggregates is a new Bristol group with a transitory line-up dedicated to complicating, disregarding or wrecking the act of performance. One member takes the bench and pronounces the terms; the others are made to deal.
Bell Lungs is an experimental musician from Scotland, imaginatively fusing noise and omnichord drones, homemade electronics, layers of harmonies, mellotron violin swirls, snippets of hill singing, pop culture references and trippy dream pop ambience… David Keenan described her vocals as “elemental” in The Wire, and she has been building a solidly enthusiastic live following since 2016. Bell Lungs has performed at Fort Process 2018, Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2018 and most recently on BBC Radio 6, on Stuart Maconie’s Freakzone.
