Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith composes bright, fluid soundscapes on a variety of synthesizers, most notably the Buchla Music Easel. Excited by the endless possibilities of electronic instruments, her music is filled with vivid, expressive melodies along with her warped, ethereal vocals.
Her music is a form of auditory interpretation, powered by curiosity and her toolkit of modular, analogue, and rare synthesizers, orchestral textures, and voice. Although ambient and modern new age circles have embraced Smith’s catalog, her 2022 album ‘Let’s Turn It Into Sound’ favors a more baroque and robust form of avant-pop. Across vibrant and visceral songs, Smith engages an inner community with awe and curiosity, expressing a feeling that words alone cannot.
Known also for her psychedelic and vibrant projections in her live performances, this AV show will combine hypnotising visuals, vertiginous vocal harmonies and cinematic sound design.

“Soaring wonky pop, ornate neoclassical and even quasi dancefloor moments… her most joyous music yet.”
Will Brown’s solo project BRECON showcases a penchant for introspective melodies, angular percussion and reflective harmonies, which drive a range of tempos into vast acoustics, wandering through repurposed references to UK dance music.
Following the success of Brecon’s debut full length ‘Fore’, the subsequent remix package ’Fore – Remixed’ features a stellar selection of remixes from the talents of JoeFarr (Turbo, Leisure System, Power Vacuum, DSNT), Surgeon’s Girl (Lapus & Livity Sound), Numeral (Irascible & Blizzard Audio Club) and Laze (With Bells Records).
