I’ve been long hoping to join this platform and here I am. I make music as GRST. I am based in Bradford, UK.
Much of my music is based around improvisation, with elements of drone, found sound and acousmatic/music concrete.
The first piece of music I have uploaded, exclusively on resonate, is from an ongoing project called D-EMI. Which stands for Drones & Percussion with Electro-magnetic Interference. In short, the project is a way for me to interact with specific locations and build sounds (especially percussion) that I capture from in-audible spectrum emitted from all electronic devices. There is a longer write-up of this project on my website. All the tools to capture EMI are re-purposed or DIY devices.
So, the release called ‘Neon Wakefield’, is a live cut from a 5-hour performance during an Art Walk across arts/social venues in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. And is in fact the only public Neon Workshop in the UK. I also did a write-up about that performance on my website too.
I plan to release a further un-cut live recording of another performance from the project that was performed at FUSE Art Space in Bradford exclusively on resonate too.
