Demdike Stare – Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker – have so far produced a trio of albums (Symbiosis, Tryptych and Elemental), while a number of intriguing mixtapes released over the last couple of years have indicated that the project is headed in new and unexpected directions.
Inspired by everything from Industrial music to Noise, Free Jazz to House, Techno and Concrète, Demdike Stare have refused to rest on their laurels or become too comfortable with their surroundings, something that's perhaps most evident when evaluating the sheer scale of the projects they have undertaken in the last 18 months. From live-scoring films for the BFI (British Film Institute) to more commercial soundtrack work in Hollywood, from their Concealed productions with Krakow’s Sinfonietta Cracovia, to the esoteric selections of their Before My Eyes sessions with Raime/BEB and the searing late night sets, anyone lucky enough to have seen them play will no doubt have them imprinted on their minds and never forget them.
Hertz Festival’s line up also includes BioMechanica – Francisco López and Arturo Lanz/Esplendor Geometrico – from Spain, and Diamond Version – Alva Noto and Byetone – from Germany.
