With support from Beau Beaumont
Ex-Easter Island Head are a UK-based musical collective composing and performing music for solid body electric guitar, percussion and other instruments.
Primarily performing as a quartet, the group incorporates multiple electric guitars augmented through mechanical preparations and extended techniques to create works that explore group interplay, repetition and melodic invention through purposefully limited means.
Their records Mallet Guitars One –Three, Large Electric Ensemble and Twenty-Two Strings have been released to significant critical acclaim, the group have received airplay on the BBC and ABC, and their music has been used on television and radio productions internationally.
Joining Ex-Easter Island Head will be Beau Beaumont, a Liverpool-based composer and performer. Her works traverse ideas surrounding physical place, a means of connection mediated through sound and synthesis, computation and coding to carve out thought provoking and left of centre performances.
