HOLZKOPF


NO-FI ELECTRONICS / TRANSFUTURISM
**********************************************************
Holzkopf is Western Canadian musician Jacob Audrey Revington Taves. A decidedly non-traditional musician, they have mainly used budget bin samplers and drum machines in combination with tape recorders, mixing board feedback and raw data sounds. Varying from harsh rhythmic noise to delicate and soft soundscapes, Holzkopf performances channel influences as diverse as industrial, dub, microsound, musique concrète and pop.  

Both a song writer and experimental improvisor, Holzkopf's recordings and performances focus on either sample based, plunderphonic and often lyrically centred songs or wild experiments which are regularly conceptualized to fit specific events and venues.  They also collaborate irregularly, performing at times with John Brennan (Botfly), Jon Vaughn, Kikiriki, Emerge, Maria Jiku, Jeff Allport, Luc Van Weelden, Yogi Data and others.
