Jeff Carey records and performs as 87 Central. While 87 Central is mainly focused
on creating soundscapes from controlled feedback systems, there is some coincidence
with phonographic ideas.

Jonathan Coleclough (b. 1963) is a UK sound artist active since 1989. His material
comes both from the immediate acoustic environment around him, and from using some of
the most basic and elemental of sound-making techniques (the scrape of metal, the sigh
of human breath). Many of the sounds that he records are freighted with emotional resonance,
or come from specific locations with personal significance. The intense but private associations
of these sounds aren't intended as the 'subject' of the work, but form an important part of his
working practice - they inform his subsequent careful processing and manipulation of the material
into sound works that are full of tension, often beautiful yet unsettling.
The rawness of his gathered sound material contrasts with the sophisticated sound-sculpting tools
he uses, and he draws on that contrast to find the necessary tensions in his work. These include
the tensions between consonance and dissonance, activity and stasis, the raw and the processed,
noticeable and imperceptible change. The sounds of our own urban and rural environments intersect
and merge with sounds generated within the closed worlds of electronic and computer equipment.
He has had work published in Europe, USA and Japan as well as in his native UK. He has
collaborated with Andrew Chalk, Colin Potter, Geoff Sawers and Tim Hill, and has performed in
the UK, Australia and the USA.
