SHAPE ARTISTS PRESENTED:
RRILL BELL (US/DE) – 2 October
Using a custom-made kit composed of cast-off relics of the Tape Age (foremost among them his trusty modified Fostex analogue multi-tracker) and surrounded by piles of cassettes, Rrill Bell assembles complex abstract emotive tone poems on the fly, one re-contextualized fragment at a time, drawing from the formative inspirations of radical scratch culture, Cagean thought, early tape music, musique concrete and various strains of free music practice.

JAY GLASS DUBS (GR) – 9 October
Dimitris Papadatos aka Jay Glass Dubs was born in the USA in 1981 and subsequently moved to Greece where he grew up. Though his work as a composer, musician and sound artist he has become one of the leaders in experimental dub electronics and a core member of the Bokeh Versions squad.
His work primarily focuses on spirituality and transformation and is an exercise of style focusing on a counter-factual historical approach of dub music, stripped down to its basic drum / bass / vox / effects form. Read our interview here.
