Renowned practitioners from opposite poles of electronic improvisation in their first outing as a duo.

Lawrence Casserley has devoted his professional career to real-time electroacoustic music, and to the idea that live sound processing can be an instrument in its own right. He is best known for his work in free improvised music, and has devised a special computer processing instrument for this work. He has worked with many of the finest improvisers, and he is a key member of the Evan Parker Electro-Acoustic Ensemble. Casserley’s instrumental approach to live computer sound processing is the hallmark of his work; the Signal Processing Instrument allows him to use physical gestures to control the processing and to direct the morphology of the sounds.

Martin Hackett is a member of Oxford Improvisers and of the Muzzix collective in Lille, France. The focus of his experimental approach to electronic improvisation has been his Korg MS10 synthesiser.
