Craig Scott's Lobotomy is a solo recording project focusing on the uncomfortable junction of human and machine creation and execution. A frankenstien's monster scaling the uncanny valley, blurring the lines between the natural and the mechanized.
Live improvisations are pulled apart, transformed by home-made noise producing / altering paraphernalia and then intricately re-constructed with digital audio software.
Steeped in malfunctioning improvisation, passive-aggressive minimalism, surreal avant-punk and free jazz trances, Leeds quintet Shatner’s Bassoon sound like little else. Since their formation in 2010, the experimental outfit’s intense maelstrom of beguiling yet disturbing noise has earned the group a reputation as a must-see live act.
Each member has a wide and disparate influence and approach to making music which all filters into the bands overall sound of evasive song structures, angular rhythms and anxiety inducing psychedelia.
Leeds based 7 piece formed in 2010, featuring members of Cinematic Orchestra, Haggis Horns,Bugalu Foundation, Shatner's Bassoon, Yellow Days, Septabeat, Hunrosa, Gotts Street Park, Paper Tiger & Abstract Orchestra
