About the artists

~1escV? & WYXMM

Across this sound and live drawing performance, WYXMM (sound artist) and ~1escV? (sound and visual artist) would like to mix their both creative universes in order to compose a kind of sensitive travel to the audience.

Using soundscape, electronic melodies and colorful lines, they would like to invite the viewers to construct their own narrative experience according to present imaginary tales and personal past history.

He currently plays with FvRTvR (a duo with Guido Henneböhl), With Lumps (a duo with Neil Davidson) and the post-conceptual anti-band Asparagus Piss Raindrop.

A longtime Brooklynite of Texas origins, he is now pleased to be based in Glasgow.
