Shed Stage: Garlic Hug
A new duo collaboration between Alessandro Altavilla and Helen Papaioannou, based in Sheffield, UK. Garlic Hug aims for maximum intensity through a minimal aesthetic. They like frenetic splintered beats, chunky synth riffs, interrupted drones, skronky sax, found tapes and private field recordings. Using a mixture of improvisation and various compositional strategies, ideas appear long enough to draw you in before they are interrupted by musical hiccups.
Helen Papaioannou: baritone/alto sax, samplers, laptop
Alessandro Altavilla: synths, laptop, electronics, walkman
