Hailing from Wales and described by music site Resident Advisor as “a strangely compelling collision of modular high sheen and repurposed household objects”, electronic act Petwo Evans bring chilly atmospheres and pan-African rhythms to Splice in what they describe as “Welsh futurism”. Using salvaged sounds, including tumble dryers, water bottles and even stones, gives their compositions a sonic texture not unlike a rough wood carving – its imperfections are obvious, but they’re also intrinsic to its character. As a review of one of their tracks put it, “the piano keys and marimba notes are bright, but they glow more like fluorescent strip lights than sunshine”.
Bringing a whole world of images to the fore, electronic act Petwo Evans have recently developed a whole new show in collaboration with interactive media artist Will Young’s Echo & Reflection outfit and Louis Mustill from production and technology studio Artists & Engineers. Expect the hairs on your neck to stand up during this sonic and visual journey.
