HERSCHEL 36

“Avantronica” duo Herschel 36 is Paul Harrison (synths/electronics) and Stu Brown (drums/electronics). Each performance is a journey in to the unknown with no rehearsal and no preconceived material. Thriving on pure improvisation and jazz instincts but revelling in a world of glitchy electronica, break beats and noisy soundscapes the duo create organically evolving sonic nebulae of spiralling analog colours, filthy rhythm and heaving atonal harmonies.

In March 2016 Herschel 36 premiered their live score to the 1925 German silent film about astronomy, Wunder Der Schopfung (a unique piece of work which is part documentary/ part fantasy) at Hippfest Festival of Silent Cinema followed by a U.K. tour in Autumn 2016.
