Black Forest Orchestra, Amphibolous, Yaldabaoth 20.11.2011

Black Forest Orchestra

Black Forest Orchestra are a quartet of electro-acoustic improvisers based across the North West who first played together as a special commission at the Woodland Gathering Festival in Cumbria in 2011.

Shaun Blezard (Clutter, Orfeo 5)
Glenn Boulter (Focal Gaol)
Simon Jones (Noise Club)
Ian Simpson (Noise Research, Fonik)

Avant-turntablism, found objects and cello

Amphibolous is Ash Steel, Adam Webster (Swung Dash) and Si Jones (Noise Club, Hot Hail). Amphibolous combines electronica, noise and free improvisation in one rollercoaster of a package. Waves of sound meet explosions of noise, woven together with the pulse that goes beyond time.


Yaldabaoth is a one man dark ambient / drone project which seeks to find the hidden beauty in manipulated analogue recordings and waves of reverb soaked guitar. Accompanied by a set of original video projections.
