TRINOVANTES - Hidden Codes
"Trinovantes is a new collaboration between old friends Franz Kirmann and Stuart Bowditch, who originally met in 2007 at the Multivitamins events in Shoreditch. The body of work on Hidden Codes employs a new approach. Songs by metal bands were interpreted by algorithmic functions into MIDI. The extracted data was then edited and played through a variety of software and synthesizers to generate warm, ambient layers that, whilst removed from the original songs, retains a sentiment of the original ideas. The layers were then arranged and further processed to form new pieces. Since Stuart Bowditch first started making music in his teens his sound has transitioned from drumming in grindcore, death metal, and punk bands to experiments in sampling, programming, improvisation, noise, and field recordings. He is inquisitive and unconventional, exploiting objects and spaces not normally associated with making music such as tea cups, bridges, and sculptures. Sounds extracted from these objects are then processed, arranged, mutated, and spliced together into indeterminate forms of unexpected rhythms and textures. Bowditch has played live extensively including venues such as Cafe Oto, Iklectik, Tate Britain, Focal Point Gallery Southend, Hadleigh Old Fire Station and Fuse Gallery Bradford. Franz Kirmann is a French music producer and recording artist based in London. He has been releasing music since 2006, both as a solo artist and with composer/multi-instrumentalist Tom Hodge with their electronic/post-classical crossover project Piano Interrupted. Aside from his production work Franz runs the electronic dance music label Days Of Being Wild, that he started in 2009 with partner Sam Berdah. Artwork: Roman Gamaury.
