Emma Gatrill is a multi-instrumentalist based in Brighton, UK. Her debut, 2012’s Chapter I, was a poignant collection of songs based around her then-latest acquisition – the harp. Subtly accompanied by various members of Brighton’s Willkommen Collective, her intricate harp playing coupled with a unique vocal fragility drew comparisons to Björk and Joni Mitchell as well as her friends and co-conspirators Rachael Dadd and Rozi Plain.
Leslie Deere is a London-based artist working with a variety of media. Originally from Tennessee, Leslie moved to study Sonic Art in the UK, continuing on from a performing arts dance scholarship in New York City. She holds a BA Honours degree in Sonic Art, under Hugh Davies at Middlesex University, and an MA in Communication Art & Design as part of the Acoustic Images pathway from the Royal College of Art. Commissions include sound installations for Kew Gardens, London and NY Fashion weeks and she has a permanently installed sculpture at the Forever Insitut in Geneva. She’s on catalogue at Rough Trade East and released on Graham Dunning's Fractal Meat label. Her work has been featured on BBC Radio 3, Radio 6, NTS and radio Concertzender.
