Prolific Russian producer Pavel Milyakov is perhaps best known under his moniker Buttechno, through which he mines the outer-ranges of contemporary electronic music for idiosyncratic club cuts that resist easy categorisation. Working together with Ukrainian artist and vocalist Yana Pavlova, the playful experimentation of Pavel Milyakov takes a distinctive turn towards analogue instrumentation, vocal manipulation and rhythmic experimentation. At Rewire, the duo will present a live set based around their first collaborative album Blue and the follow-up album Wandering. Even though Blue is a lighter and less moody work, both albums explore the textural sound of droning guitars, shoegaze, ambient, noise and spoken word.
Pavel Milyakov & Yana Pavlova perform on Friday 8 April.
