Biography

Shelly doesn’t usually make dance music but we have invited her to try it out. This Birmingham based composer of instrumental, electroacoustic and live electronic music is usually more at home performing and composing for her multifarious projects and collaborations, which include BiLE (Birmingham Laptop Ensemble) and Interleave (a jazz quartet and laptop collaboration). She is also a member of the sound art collective SOUNDkitchen and organizer of Network Music Festival – one of the worlds only dedicated networked music festivals. Shelly will present the results of her research into popular dance music as a performance of live coded improv and messed up beats. Expect an audacious debut onto an unfamiliar dance floor!
