The experimentalists: musical voyagers, boxed in by nothing but the limits of their imagination. Two of these artists are more than familiar to the Arctangent audience. On one side, Jo Quail – she has spent the past few years honing the capture of tension and its beautiful release armed with only a cello, effects and loop pedals. On the other side, Howard James Kenny – in one guise looping vocals and guitar into a heavenly crescendo, in another wildly cavorting with drums and noise.
Arctangent 2020 will exclusively bring these artists together for a unique, improvised performance. What to expect: quite simply, the unexpected. An experiment in sound, created by two musicians who have carved out their own path.
