Jessica Aslan and Emma Lloyd are the first guests composer / performer of a series of streamed concerts of experimental music taking place at UCA in Farnham and at IKLECTIK in London. The other concerts this year are Gildas Quartet (October 2019), Marcus Kaiser (May 2019), Stefan Thut  (April 2019).

Jessica Aslan and Emma Lloyd (KUBOV) is a duo of violin and electronics. Incorporating minimalist textures and harrowing dissonance and distortion, their music ranges from the esoterically tingly to downright disturbing. Their eclectic sonorities are a result of the hybridisation of electronics and acoustic instrument, with which they explore and combine spaces and places, warping perspective and effecting a sonic escapism.

The concert series, is a collaboration between bookRoom and the Audio Research Cluster at UCA Farnham, curated by Emmanuelle Waeckerle and Harrey Whalley, around their common research in extended, textual, visual, gestural and object scores and ways to integrate or experience technology in text/music/film/performances.
