Hello, my name is Markus. I am an electronic music producer and DJ, performing under my stage name Industries. Today I am going to present you Manchester’s most exciting artists working creatively with sounds, ranging from sound art to electronica. I will start presenting my Industries project and my most recent collaborative EP with Hervé also known as Nevsky Perspective – we conducted a sound walk interview in Alexandra Park which I will play to you. Other guests in this show are sound artist Gary Fisher, genre-bending electronic music producers PERiiSU, Iceboy Violet and Clay. This show will be a journey through field recordings, conversations, interviews, sounds, beats, ranging from abstract to danceable, from acoustic to synthetic. We will talk about sound art, electronic music, compositional and production strategies, the role of improvisation and all the exciting projects we are all involved in despite lockdown.
