Synthcurious is a series of electronic music events, this installment sees I Speak Machine, made up of vocalist and synth-nerd Tara Busch and filmmaker Maf Lewis + electronic composer and single Hannah Peel + electronic duo Kite Base.
I Speak Machine are vocalist and synth-nerd Tara Busch and filmmaker Maf Lewis. Together they make brooding soundtracks and horror/sci-fi films, creating audio and visual in unison and giving both elements equal prominence. Their approach is inspired by Spaghetti Western cinema duo Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone, who used to play with score ideas for scenes while scripts were being written.
The Northern Irish artist, singer and electronic composer and member of The Magnetic North, Hannah Peel will be performing live with her electronic solo setup her new album ‘Awake But Always Dreaming’ out 23rd September 2016. This year, her recent collaborations with Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (aka Erol Alkan & Richard Norris) – was featured on two BBC6 playlisted singles ‘Diagram Girl’ and ‘Creation’ and her band The Magnetic North released their critically acclaimed follow up LP ‘Prospect Of Skelmersdale’ in March. She has also been composing under her new synth-based, space-age alter-ego Mary Casio with an experimental piece combining analogue electronics and a 33-piece colliery brass band (it debuted to a sold out Manchester audience in May). Although modestly she shies away from any compasion, it’s little wonder The Observer recently described Peel as ‘a great singer and a latter day Delia Derbyshire’.
Kite Base is an electronic duo featuring Ayse Hassan (also bass player in Savages) and Kendra Frost. Comprised of two bass guitars, vocals and beats with an industrial edge; blending the craft of pop with organic noise. The name is based on one of the main starting points found in origami, a Kite Base is an opening move made with simple folds to generate a firm and fertile foundation for creativity. It can become whatever you want it to be- simple or complex- based on the imagination of the creator, inspiration and chance.
