Tim Wright and AB Johnson present their compelling brand of anti-pop. The Viewer's live sound is powerful and accessible, combining AB’s acerbic social commentary with Tim’s vintage synth driven music and real-time visuals.

Bastard Structures:
Two integrated works creating opposing extremes of sound and image. Using simple geometric shapes and synthetic sound, Theo Burt and Tim Wright construct formal aesthetic worlds that exercise and distort visual and sonic perceptions.

Beamont Hannant:
A wildly eclectic producer and DJ who released four critically acclaimed LPs during the 1990s for GPR and was named one of "The Faces of '94" by music magazine Select. He has remixed artists such as Autechre, Bjork and Ned’s Atomic Dustbin and was one half of the trip hop duo Outcast who signed to One Little Indian in 1996.

AB Johnson – the writer, singer and lyricist has fronted a number of bands since the mid 1990s and played extensively throughout the UK. Johnson delivers kinetic live performances, snarling with a voice ‘reminiscent of Lou Reed’s junkie punk drawl’ [Here Magazine].

Tim Wright has been releasing his inimitable brand of electronic music since the early 1990s. He has attracted the support of some of the key labels in the field with releases on Mute, Tresor, Soul Jazz and PIAS among others. He has remixed artists as diverse as Nancy Elizabeth, Laurent Garnier and Goldfrapp. His recent works as an audio-visual artist use light as a means to augment and subvert the spatial and temporal perception of sound.

Theo Burt is a UK-based artist working with sound, video and light. Recent projects have focused on the use of highly consistent relationships between sound and video to create a partial predictability and the effects of this on perceptions on time. He has exhibited extensively internationally and his sound and video works have been released on the labels Entr'acte and Or (for the Automatics Group).
