Kite Base is an electronic duo featuring Ayse Hassan (also bass player in Savages) and Kendra Frost. Comprised of two bass guitars, vocals and beats with an industrial edge; blending the craft of pop with organic noise. The name is based on one of the main starting points found in origami, a Kite Base is an opening move made with simple folds to generate a firm and fertile foundation for creativity. It can become whatever you want it to be- simple or complex – based on the imagination of the creator, inspiration and chance.
Synthcurious are happy to announce singer and electronic composer and member of The Magnetic North, Hannah Peel will be performing live on 13/09 with her electronic solo setup her new album ‘Awake But Always Dreaming’ out 23rd September 2016.
This year, her recent collaborations with Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (aka Erol Alkan & Richard Norris) – was featured on two BBC6 playlisted singles ‘Diagram Girl’ and ‘Creation’ and her band The Magnetic North released their critically acclaimed follow up LP ‘Prospect Of Skelmersdale’ in March. She has also been composing under her new synth-based, space-age alter-ego Mary Casio with an experimental piece combining analogue electronics and a 33-piece colliery brass band (it debuted to a sold out Manchester audience in May). Although modestly she shies away from any comparison, it’s little wonder The Observer recently described Peel as ‘a latter day Delia Derbyshire’.
