COMPANY FUCK (or CxFx) <Australia / Germany> [√] is a one-man noisecore karaoke explosion. Known for his energetic and unpredictable live shows, Company Fuck simultaneously performs (and parodies) the roles of DJ, MC, singer, and dancer in an irreverent yet loving way which satirizes musicians, the music business, and music in general. From improvised pop/noise cut-ups to sexually psychedelic costumes, Company Fuck brings a futuristic approach to live performance with a totally interactive show that transcends the limitations of good musicianship and good taste. In his own unique way, Company Fuck transforms the stage into a hyper- violent karaoke bar of the future – and he may even persuade the audience to sing along.
Company Fuck (or CxFx) is the high-energy anecdote to other laptop musicians. As a live wireless music monster, he is able to fast-forward through an entire rainbow of musical styles with every tortured scream or dirty dance move. CxFx takes the crowd on a high-speed ride through a compressed history of music, including hardcore, rave, and noise, with interludes of plundered pop and passionate karaoke. CxFx sounds like one man conjuring a million artists together for a bloody entangled mess of manic audio intercourse and copyright infringement. Nobody is safe from the CxFx treatment.
CxFx has toured extensively throughout Europe, Australia, Japan, Russia, and North America. CxFx has released music on BRK (FR), Hirntrust Grind Media (AT), Omega Warfare (UK), Spettro Rec (IT), FuckYouTapes (AT), God Redikz (NZ), and Half/theory (AUS).

BAND SENSATIONS [√] are Wellington-based Creek Waddington (electric kazoo), Amos Mann (electric double bass), and Sian Torrington (milked objects, piano and voices), reinterpreting such sounds as 1980s answering machine, oversized glittery stiletto heels, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and bangle-filled spittoon. Band Sensations’ sound expeditions are variously conducted as pure live improvisation, as a layering of sound over original recordings, and on the odd occasion, as improvisation over an ad-hoc backing track created mid-show.
Sian Torrington is an artist who was one of those kids who learnt clarinet and piano properly then ran away, and then returned years later bent on musical expressiveness and exploration. Amos Mann is a composer, musician and egalitarian who has recently focused on composition for mixed-experience performers. And, in a happy gelling of values, Creek Waddington is a mixed-experience, self-taught kazooist and internet-taught digital composer.
SAMIN SON <Korea / New Zealand> is a multidisciplinary thing that channels sounds, visual material, installations, messing things up and organising things and shows with performative strategies.
Sound performance based projects so far have been:
CHORDULA(w Blair Clarke, Alexander Green, Daniel Boobyer) / ROKCP(w Daniel Boobyer, Blair Clarke and Alexander Green) / RESEARCH(w Daniel Boobyer and Max Trevor Thomas Edmond) / CHAAT-GI(w Max Trevor Thomas Edmond) / FIENDS(w Matthew Brennan a.k.a Flick & Karaoke Dick) / UENAI(w Marika Pratley and Andy Wright) / F.A.N.Z(w Fergus Nelson Moores a.k.a Mischancerie, Antony Milton (founder PseudoArcana Records) and Noel Meek (founder End of the Alphabet Records)/ FIRE NATION(w Rob Thorne and Sarah Bingle) as well as under SAMIN SON (noise music, improv music, sound art, composition, performance art, video art, installations, paintings, sculptures, curatorial projects and folk) This thing also has performed with The Stumps and The All Seeing Hand previously on vocals.
