Richard Douglas-Green works with natural sounds, processing them through the use of ultrasonics and other technologies to produce new sounds which retain the complexity of their natural origins but that have acquired new identities whose source can no longer be readily identified. He worked in sound production with the BBC in Cardiff, Bristol and Plymouth before becoming Senior Lecturer in Sound Production at Plymouth College of Art and Design. He now runs a small independent label and recording studio in Northern Brittany.
Werner Durand performs music for saxophones, Iranian ney, and self-made wind instruments. He started to build wind instruments out of plexiglass and PVC in the early 80s. Werner has collaborated with numerous composers/performers including David Behrman, John Driscoll, David Moss, Muslimgauze, Henning Christiansen, David Toop and the visual/ sound artist Rolf Julius. A variety of materials and playing techniques enables him to bring out unusual sounds, rich textures and rhythmic ideas that might recall tribal music from Africa or the Pacific but which at the same time sound experimental, and even (post-)industrial.
Mike McInerney is a lecturer in music with Plymouth University. His work as a composer and performer combines acoustic instruments with electronic technology. Recent works have been presented at Sonic Arts’ EXPO Leeds, Noise=Noise, Falmouth LiveArt and Plymouth New Music Festival.
Michael Neil is an electronic composer with a release catalogue of more than twenty albums to his credit. Born in England he now resides in Berlin.
