By Anton  //  Performances  //  No Comments

Monthly improvisation jam session with special guest set this month from Shelly Knotts (laptop) and Anton Hunter (guitar).

Shelly Knotts produces live-coded and network music performances and projects which explore aspects of code, data and collaboration. Her experimental and collaborative tendencies have seen her engage with diverse musical practices and styles ranging from electroacoustic tape music to live-coded dance music. She performs internationally, collaborating with computers and other humans.

She is studying for a PhD in Live Computer Music at Durham University. Past affiliations include BEAST (Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre) and SOUNDkitchen. Her work is published on Chordpunch record label, Absence of Wax netlabel and in Leonardo Music Journal. She has received commissions and residencies from PRSF and Sound and Music.

Current projects include network laptop bands BiLE and OFFAL (Orchestra For Females And Laptops) and live coding performance [Sisesta Pealkiri] with Alo Allik.

Anton Hunter is a composer and improviser living in Manchester. He leads his own trio, who have found airtime on Radio 3 and he can be found playing in a variety of settings with varying levels of improvisation, with musicians such as Mick Beck, Sam Andreae, Simon Prince, Rodrigo Constanzo, Cath Roberts, Phil Marks, David Birchall, Keith Jafrate and many more.

He is also the guy who pulls the names out the hat for The Noise Upstairs, come along to watch him awkwardly introducing himself again.

Before and after their set, there will be improvising. Lots of it. Involving *you* and whatever instrument/laptop/voice/toy/sounds you decide to bring.

About The Noise Upstairs

The Noise Upstairs is an improv collective which runs a free-improv night in Manchester. The basic premise is that anyone can turn up and join in by putting their name in the hat. Names are pulled out, ensembles formed, and hearts broken.
