Christopher DeLaurenti
"My field recordings try to capture unusual and perhaps dangerous urban sonic spaces and situations. The resulting pieces embody my quest for the musical confluence of everyday speech, noise, and environmental sound."

John Levack Drever (Edinburgh, 1973)
Drever has created audio works for concert hall, radio, catwalk, classroom, devised theatre, animation, internet, dance, visual arts galleries and installation as site-specific works. Collaboration has been fundamental in the approach and realisation of much of his work - collaborators include the poets Alaric Sumner, Alice Oswald and Tony Lopez. He is a member of Blind Ditch, company-in-residence at Dartington College of Arts.

He has a particular fascination in listening to and collecting environmental sounds as a starting point to making sonic art. In October 2001 he was awarded a PhD from Dartington College of Arts for a programme of study titled 'Phonographies: Practical and Theoretical Explorations into Composing with Disembodied Sound' and is a co-founder and director of the UK and Ireland Soundscape Community (affiliated to the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology). In February 2001, he chaired Sound Practice: the 1st UKISC Conference on sound, culture and environments at Dartington.

Drever's work has twice been awarded prizes in the annual Musica Nova competition, Prague. Commissions include Groupe de Recherches Musicales, Staffordshire County Council, Mousonturm, South West Arts and RSPB. He has performed his work at many major international festivals including performances in Granada, Chicago, Sheffield, Beijing, Paris, Prague, Florida, Belfast, Havana and Glasgow.

>From September 2003 he will be lecturing in composition at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Andrew Duke
Andrew Duke has always been fascinated by sound and music; since 1981 he's been writing about it; since 1987, he's been DJing, remixing, producing, recording, releasing, and performing.

The Wire (UK): "Andrew Duke creates electronic music that sounds like it has a reason for living." Jockey Slut (UK): "Most of Andrew Duke's music is largely composed from 'found sound'. Seems he can't turn off his sensors, no matter where he is--'a train went by last night and we got some really nice sounds out of that. That's the way I work--fluorescent lights, fridges, whatever makes sound.'" Nightwaves (Canada): "I enjoy the sounds of the world--from dogs barking and cats meowing to cars passing and trains travelling and refrigerators humming and people talking and the sounds of nature: thunder, rain, and so on. I think we take for granted the wonderful sounds that surround us as we go about our daily lives. People and the world itself make music without even trying--just by being in a state of existence."
