MUTATE is improvised, experimental soundscapes: dark ambient, intense in nature, mixing live drones with off-kilter beats, shortwave radio and random found sounds. Usually.
MUTATE live, employs processed guitar/bass guitar, dictaphones, tapes, vinyl, tape loops, TR-606, samples, radio and primitive looping to construct anything from dense sound fields to expansive ambient textures. In the studio, styles and genres are blurred and juxtaposed.
MUTATE has collaborated with numerous fringe artists, including Milk (The Mekano Set), Laetitia Schteinberg (Ars Sonor), Hyaena Fierling, D.N.P., Crystal Set, ten:ten, Cities Prepare For Attack!, Alex Charles/Thee Moths, Kommissar Hjuler and Mama Baer, and Hsin Yi Chang (Glass Diamond).
MUTATE is the sound project of UK improviser, Ade Bordicott.
