Open Circuit returns to the Lanternhouse for another night of grass roots exploratory music on Thursday 4th August.

Amazing line up for this event:

Noise Research – alter-ego of UK Sound Artist / Musician Ian Simpson. Ian has been involved in the experimental / improvised music scene for many years and He has adopted an uncompromising approach in both playing and performance which has led to his involvement as a performer with many other artists.

Gagarin – Gagarin has been making music on the edges of the musical galaxy for many years in many guises. Currently he works alone crafting atmospheric digital soundscapes, sculpting future grooves and polishing aching melodies. He plays out live – an exciting mix of software precision and human frailty/spontaneity thats never the same twice.

Deep Clutter – Deep Clutter are a trio of improvisers based around the North of England – They are: Steve Lewis (vocals), Mary Oliver (vocals) & Shaun Blezard (electronics). They are currently developing improvised work about place, belonging, family and mortality.

Andi Chapple – Andi is a sound artist based in Sedburgh, Cumbria. He will be performing a development of a performance working with recordings made under a disused (but still very echoy) railway bridge on Jordan Lane, Middleton, near Sedbergh, looping them in real time, controlling them with a set of MIDI controller foot pedals made out of CD-Rs and piezoelectric pickups.
