Due to circumstances with Kesh/Simon Scott we have had to stop sales via wegottickets early. Tickets will be available on the door or please email us with names and which events you want to reserve for.

Simon Scott: We are sorry to announce that due to a family emergency this week Simon will be unable to perform at this event. Due to this we will not be able to offer free Kesh CDs as part of the combined pass ticket.

Pimmon is the long-term project of Australian Paul Gough. Pimmon is recognised internationally for pushing the boundaries of music and digital composition. His music draws and scrapes together pop, minimal composition, exotic drones and found sounds, creating a dense, emotive, compelling and challenging listening experience. Recording on labels including no less than Fällt, Fat Cat, Tigerbeat6, Staalplaat and Staubgold, he has also collaborated with Keith Rowe, Fennesz and Oren Ambarchi.

With his latest edition 'The Oansome Orbit' for Lawrence English's ROOM40 imprint, he strikes out at some of his most harmonic territory to date, merging washes of rich tone against irregular grids of texture. The results are wholly individual and utterly consuming.

"The Oansome Orbit is about connection and disconnection. In playing with micro loops of sound - macro listening worlds are made; universes of white noise wash, blurry melancholic tones, jagged granular debris. As all these seemlingly disconnected sounds orbit each other, often I feel transported to somewhere vast - distant - majestic; yet in the process I feel a great sense of loss, being 'oansome'."- Pimmon

"This is intricate music, compiled by a master at work, experienced in his field but approaching sound with the innovation of one in love with the sounds he uses, and the bravery to play with sound to create something other." - fluid radio

Often heard between sets during Bad Timing's 10 years of existence, we are very proud to present him in Cambridge for the first time.

local radio

Local Radio is a live project using FM transmitters and recycled radios to create site-specific performances in which the radios become an experimental PA system or a rather unpredictable polyphonic instrument. Sound sources include cassettes, clockwork record players playing custom-made recycled CD records and field recordings.

Originally created as part of 'Frequency Modulation' at Kettle's Yard New Music Mornings in 2008, Local Radio has been staged in a variety of venues in Cambridge including Aid & Abet as part of 'Art As A Full Time Hobby' (2011) and Reworks and most recently at kleeep-a-kleeep STEW Gallery, Norwich. Local Radio has also shared bills with the likes of Alexander Tucker and Courtis/Moore in Cambridge.
