John Richards’ Dirty Electronics injects filth and chaos into electronic music (and its well known we love filth and chaos at EAVI). The Dirty Electronics ensemble explores ritual and collectivity in music through collaborative instrument building and performance, and have performed commissioned pieces by Merzbow, Pauline Oliveros and Nicholas Bullen (Scorn / Napalm Death). John has recently been making synths for Mute which are being used by Chris Carter and Factory Floor (amongst others).
Holovr is one of the many guises of Jimmy Billingham, producing murky techno infused with aquatic melancholy, coaxed out of samplers, Gameboys and cassette players. He has released two albums on the mighty Opal Tapes.
