Long Distance Poison is the Brooklyn based experimental electronics project of Nathan Cearley and Erica Bradbury. Through a developed process that uses generative systems, pseudo randomness, improvisation, layering, spectral modulation, drone and noise, LDP creates music that opens up to the mystery. They have performed at the Ende Tymes Festival, the Basilica Hudson 24-Hour Drone Festival, The Wassaic Project, the MOMA PS1 NY Art Book Fair, the Voice of the Valley Noise Festival, at Pioneer Works as part of a Clocktower Gallery residency and recently completed a video synthesis project called Rheomodes with a performance and installation at Printed Matter. They have releases on Deep Distance, Oxtail Recordings, Hausu Mountain, Ecstatic Peace!, Foxy Digitalis, Baked Tapes, Constellation Tatsu and other weird imprints.
☁︎☁︎☁︎☁︎♒︎∆ Their latest release, Knock Magh, is out May 25th on Hausu Mountain.
“School teacher by day and architect of angular space sounds by night Connor Bell has politely offered his vision of hi-fi (read: it doesn’t sound recorded under water) bedroom pop under the moniker of Shedding for just under a decade. In that time, Shedding has shifted in and out of sonic consciousness, toggling between the type of meditative ambience that earns high marks amongst the Hecker School graduates– such as his 2010 release on Hometapes Tear in the Sun– and a hook-heavy psychedelic amalgam of resonant synths and acoustic noodling. Bell’s latest, Demography, falls clearly within the latter, but with an acute eye toward the mathematical rat race of the Autobahn this go round.” – Kenny Bloggins/TheDecibelTolls

Josh Mason lives and works in Jacksonville, FL.
Balancing improvisation, arrangement and orchestration, his sounds are derived from variety of tools and various processing environments, both analog and digital. While focused on restraint & reservation, he tends to believe that audio works should go on only as long as they need to to convey the idea at hand.
His work has been published by Eilean Records, FET Press, Desire Path Recordings, Own Records, Digitalis, Sunshine Ltd. and others.
☁︎☁︎♒︎∆ Josh and Connor have a split tape coming out called Karl, which will be available on their tour and at the show.
