Joby Burgess, percussion/electronics Matthew Fairclough, sound design Kathy Hinde, visual artist British percussionist Joby Burgess is best known for his virtuosic performances and regularly appears throughout the UK, Europe and beyond with artists including Stewart Copeland, Peter Gabriel and Joanna MacGregor. Powerplant is an inspiring collaboration of British artists, comprising Burgess’s playing and electronics with cinematic sound by Matthew Fairclough and bespoke film by Kathy Hinde. In a lavish audio-visual feast the worlds of minimalism and electronica collide: explosive drumming, lush xylosynth, found objects, American presidents and traces of Franz Schubert culminate in Powerplant’s landmark collaboration with composer Gabriel Prokofiev.
