The countdown has started with less than 5 weeks till Supersonic Festival 2010.
The latest news includes the very exciting addition to the line-up with the awesome live orchestra, Chrome Hoof, experimental hardcore drummer Ruins, the heavy riffage of Dethscalator and the melancholic pop sounds of Daniel O’Sullivan’s new project, Mothlite. Also, a special AV set from the hugely evocative Barn Owl, the psych/folk/electronic sounds of Health & Efficiency, regular jazz meets free improv in the form of Steve Tromans & Dan Nicholls Duo and Black Sun Drum Corps presenting a percussion parade through the festival, which will combine Supersonic Festival performers and audience members to create a visceral and live massed drumming experience.

There’s also God’s White Noise, an installation of guitarists who will perform over the duration of 7 hours, Supersonic Noise Boxes (workshop), where participants can build their own 3 oscillator screaming, light-controlled Noise Box instrument, a talk on Fear of Music and why experimental music is deemed less accessible than experimental visual art, plus Napalm Death’s Nicholas Bullen presenting Breach, a performance which explores the voice and how it can be used to undermine the codes which govern discourse.
