L I V E S E T S
Darkly beautiful, restless visuals and soundscapes within a massive fog of sub bass, Scald Process is a new collaboration between Stormfield (Fausten / Combat Recordings) and various live instrumentalists and vocalists including Luxul, Liam Noonan, Eden Grey, Joe Zeitlin, Marco Donnarumma and Mar Del Corral.
Informed equally by Autechre, Basinski and Scorn, the project was borne out of dark rooms and fucked up sounds, pushing the extremes of harmonic noise but with a solid soundsystem discipline, combining string abuse, improvisation and distortion with gigantic subs and abstract technoid beat structures.
The project began with Aimee Mullen and Marco Donnarumma in 2014 as Sea of Scald (later shorted to Scald) with tracks featured on Rinse FM and a couple of releases on Section 27 and Loose Lips. This evolved into Scald Process, combining a wider range of instruments like viola, violin, piano and vocals with evolving electronic techniques, and quickly snowballed into a load of new material.
EARTH IS FLAT
Best described as 'dub-influenced, world electronic music', Earth Is Flat was created by 2 polish producers after moving to UK 5 years ago. We have been performing mainly through out 2015/16 on festivals, night clubs, theatres, galleries, churches, fashion shops and pubs as our multi-genre music finds interest in various events.
In early 2016 we've released a debut mini-album called 'Away From Here And Now' on 'Bit-Phalanx' record label. All the way through 2016 we've released remixes and tracks on various compilations and record labels. End of 2016 brought us a release of our new video and remix EP. Awaiting for new releases of our remixes made for Kelli Ali and SaraSara from One Little Indian in Jan and Feb.

Originally trained as a classical pianist in her youth, she has been making electronic music since 2007 and started building her modular synthesizer in 2013 which has had a great effect on the development of her music. She is currently in the third year of her PhD in music composition at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Liam is a musician, composer, and multimedia artist, currently studying electronic music in London. His musical direction focuses on severely distorting classical music techniques, juxtaposed with heavily processed electronics, influences ranging from noise and free jazz, to contemporary classical music, field recordings and sound design.
