The works of Bristol-based composer and producer John Bence tackle epic narrative themes and uncompromising sonics with a trembling emotional punch. Trained in classical composition, he employs a unique cyclical technique of scoring, recording, manipulating, re-scoring and re-recording to combine prepared cello, home-recorded percussion, and his own voice. The result, released on Nicolas Jaar’s Other People and Yves Tumor’s Grooming, is an intoxicating blend of harmony and noise that is fuelled by and navigates devastating emotions.
