from Piccadilly RecordsAfter recent visits to Manchester and Salford supporting Tim Hecker, Mountains and Stephan Mathieu, we are pleased to announce a headline show by Simon Scott.

Simon Scott is a sound artist and multi-instrumentalist currently based in Cambridge. His third album, Below Sea Level, was released in May 2012 by Taylor Deupree’s acclaimed 12k label.

The aesthetics of active listening and the subjective distinction of compositional materials and sound timbres are predominant explorations in his work. His music is a fusion of digital signal manipulation, micro-melodies and minimalism combined with environmental sounds and organic acoustic textures. He is inspired by his interests in sound ecology, music technology, digital media, illustration, composition and sonic art.

His music has been previously released on Morr Music, Miasmah, Slaapwel, Sonic Pieces, Secret Furry Hole and Ghostly International, and his track For Martha was included on Kompakt’s Pop Ambient 2012 compilation.

P Jørgensen is a composer & sound artist based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Exploring the relationship between composition and chance, Jørgensen creates music by drawing upon a palette of acoustic instrumentation and field recordings which are transformed into luminous textures, crystalline tones and vibrant ambient drones.

riverrun is a side project by Daniel Land of the UK bands ENGINEERS and DANIEL LAND & THE MODERN PAINTERS.Taking its name from the famous opening line of James Joyce’s modernist masterpiece Finnegan’s Wake, the riverrun project (always in lowercase letters) is a series of ‘secret’ ambient recordings that Land has been working for over a decade in parallel to his songs. The end result of this compositional process is an aural canvas of almost unimaginable complexity, whose deeper level of subliminal detail (sometimes literally hundreds of layers of sound are running concurrently) belies the surface simplicity of the music.
