Graham Dunning [b. 1981] is self-taught as an artist and musician having studied neither discipline academically. His live work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects. He also creates visual work, video and installations drawing on these themes.
Much of the work evolves through experimentation with different processes: considering the methods by which sounds become music; process as a continuum encompassing both improvisational and procedural methods; and testing analogous processes across different media.
Graham has performed solo and in ensembles across the UK, Europe and Canada, and exhibited in the UK, Europe, New Zealand and USA. He teaches Experimental Sound Art at the Mary Ward Centre in London and also gives various independent workshops. He has released through Entr’acte, Seagrave, Tombed Visions and more.
Rowland Hill (b.1989, Leicester) is an artist based in Manchester working across performance, moving image, text and sound.

In 2017 she received the Clare Winsten Memorial Award from the Slade School of Fine Art where she recently completed her Masters degree. Rowland is also the founder and co-director of Video Jam, an award winning platform described as ‘audiovisual masterminds’ (Time Out), dedicated to curating, commissioning and presenting moving image works with live sound.
