Biographies 

Simon Rose is a Berlin based saxophonist who explores free improvisation in both solo and group performances around Europe, the United States and Canada. His interest as a free improviser came through limiting himself to solo alto saxophone performance, as on the recording Procession (FMR 2005). In recent years Rose has introduced the baritone saxophone to his work, exploring the possibilities offered by the larger bore’s harmonic range, notable on his album Schmetterling (Not Two Records, 2011). He has also performed and recorded with Steve Noble, Simon Fell, Pauline Oliveros, Colin Stetson,Oluyemi Thomas, Klaus Janek, Chris Chafe & Kanoko Nishi amongst a great many others. Recordings can be found on Bruce’s Fingers, Emanem, FMR, Rayon, Leo, PSI, Not Two and pfMentum.

Michael Speers is a musician from Northern Ireland, currently based in London. He uses feedback as the basis for most of his practice, taking influence from noise and electronic music, instrumental improv and drone. Amplified percussion is bowed, struck or made to resonate and layered amongst field recordings, no-input feedback and test equipment sounds. The resultant soundscape could be described as oppressive meditation, ultimately exploiting the inherent negative beauty of typical noise sources. This performance coincides with the release of his debut album Auto Rot.
