      "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."

      Aldous Huxley



      This year Galvanised! is setting out to exploring themes and distances between music and cosmology -

      So are joining an age long debate about the true nature of music and its abstractness in the universe - it is subject that has been studied and thought about by musicians, academics, philosophers, composers and occultists for decades and millennia from antiquity to pre-history.

      A very thoughtful and powerful subject indeed - So we have invited an equal amount of especially equipped powerful composer and musicians who we knew would relish in exploring cosmological ideas.



      ALEXANDER TUCKER
      a multi instrumentalist soundsmith - Tucker tears sound a part in equal amount of composition and de-composition - -
      Combining compositional song structures, drones, layered vocals and improvisations he creates a collection of spectral moods, eerie landscapes and fragile fractals of neu psychedelia.

      STANDARD PLANETS
      standard planets are have three members - ben webster, robert tubb, ewan fisher - they create epic symphonies that effortlessly combine elements of monolithic drone, caustic machine funk, '67 psych, carpathian hillbilly, fourth world soundscapes, bipolar sludge and tectonic krautrock"

      For MUSIC vs THE UNIVERSE
      STANDARD PLANETS will perform in full their own version of HOLST's MARS -

      ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB

      '...sonic debris cluttering and then overloading the stereo spectrum...' Dusted Magazine

      The ultraistic dense sounds of neil campbell aka ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB is a marriage made in the icy moon of Hyperion! - when is comes to sounding new discovered cosmological countries!
      Mister campbell has been a leviathan of cosmic sound composing building layer upon layer of dark subatomic musical notes, forming einstein/riemann bridges into new galaxies of electronic wormholes -

      TEMPERATURES

      'Unruly arhythmic free hypno-rock'

      Temperatures have been consistently hacking our subconscious with the bristling mammoth sounds of sonic primal bass, synth and drums - very time i see them live i am always left high and dry wanting 'damn' more!!!!
      More swirling hypnotic tempos, more fearless dirty oblivion - TEMPERATURES n'ver disappoint!!!

      JO THOMAS

      Jo Thomas is a acoustmatic composer / electronic artist
      Her music repeatedly explores the polarities of failure and perfection working with visual image , micro-sound, glitch and pure tone - Jo creates musical feral beauty - compostion that conjure up new depth in ways of listening to sound - listening to her music is like emerging yourself into a philip k. dick outer edged orbiting strange planet - darkly familiar yet uncannily forever alien!!!!
