“Sonic Boom” is the alias of Pete Kember, best known as the singer/guitarist in the legendary hypno-drone unit Spacemen 3. In 1990 he issued his lone solo LP, Spectrum; after the 1991 swan song Recurring, Sonic recycled the Spectrum title as the name of his new band, which debuted with the LP Soul Kiss (Glide Divine). Sonic Boom was also the driving force behind the Experimental Audio Research project, a loose configuration of musicians which included My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields. After the break-up of Spacemen 3, Sonic formed Spectrum with guitarist Richard Formby and bassist Mike Stout, along with contributions from Pat Fish (a.k.a. the Jazz Butcher).

is a collective including Naut Humon, Li Alin and Scott Arford.
Naut performed with the experimental music group “Rhythm & Noise”. For several decades, he’s experimented with a wide range of audience mobilization and extreme environments to build bridges between audio and visual experiences. Li Alin is a new media artist who recently made her first debut album All in on Asphodel records. She is currently preparing her second solo album which should be release at the end of this year. Scott Arford is one of the leading figures of new media arts in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has produced numerous works for sound and video including multichannel installations, live performances, CD and DVD projects.
