Cute Owl has built up a reputation for putting on festivals of original and highly individual music where each event is a once in a lifetime experience, and this one will certainly be no exception, joining forces with OGG Club to bring you a show that will take your breath away.
tAngerinecAt - Ukraine/UK Stunning lead hurdy-gurdy with effect pedals, fierce yet tender vocals, floaty flutes, massive drone bass and DIY samples seamlessly combine with industrial-rave beats, anarchist political views and piercing vulnerability in an utterly captivating show.
The nomadic duo tAngerinecAt was formed in 2008 in Ukraine as a collaboration between Ukrainian Eugene Purpurovsky and English Paul Chilton. Inspired by their studies, travels and music experiences in remote parts of the Carpathian Mountains, their music has also absorbed different forms of Ukrainian and Soviet counterculture.
They have four independently released, successfully selling albums that have had airplay on BBC 2, BBC 3 and BBC 6. The band has toured internationally in Ukraine, UK and Russia
ED DOWIE - London Ed started making music in the late 1990s with Brothers in Sound, who released three EPs and an album with Regal Recordings and BMG. He then spent several years composing music for short films and theatre projects, including The Paper Cinema before embarking on a solo career in 2012. He released 2 EPs (in 2013 and 2014) before joining the ranks of Lost Map Records, who released his debut album, The Uncle Sold in January 2017. His music has regularly appeared on BBC6 Music and BBC Radio 3's Late Junction, which included The Uncle Sold in their Top 12 albums of 2017.
HYPNOTIQUE - Nottingham/London What happens when eccentricity meets electricity? What connects the invention of the lightbulb to the Berlin techno scene? Take a tour with Hypnotique (Britain's third-best theremin player) to explore the weird and wonderful story of electronic music - past, present and future. In this immersive multimedia music show, meet the genius and ingenious - like Bob Moog, Delia Derbyshire and Kraftwerk - who made any sound you can imagine possible, as well as today's pioneers pushing the audio envelope.
