News!

It’s been a long time, but things are still slowly chugging along here at wonkystuff. Obviously the pandemic stuff prevented us from running the April show, but we hope to start doing live stuff again just as soon as we can.

In the mean time, there are a couple of hardware announcements:

  1. There will be a new version of the wonkystuff Core1 board (revision C) available soon – this time we have a front panel and a square-wave sub-oscillator output too.
  2. We’re toying with the idea of producing programmed chips (such as oscillators, envelope generators), and have the first one basically done (there’ll be another post soon).

Anyway, that’s it for now – stay safe everyone!

Wonkystuff events are characterised by the minimal (DiY) presentation, and no canned music between performances (we value the time to talk to audience members, without the distraction of background music – we feel that the focus should be on the performed music)

18: Dare we speak on the laws of chance?

(for the benefit of regulars, this one has switched to a Monday)

Stellar line-up this time with contributions from the North-East and the North West… highly regarded the lot of ’em!

  • Zimzum: Amy Horgan is revisiting York from Manchester with sounds “Distantly resembling techno, but committed to its grinding, fuggy atmosphere more than providing beat-based succour” (The Quietus)
  • 1727: 1727 is the solo project of Esmé Louise Newman (half of ‘Penance Stare’), channelling dark ambiences and menacing tones…
  • Falco Subbuteo: Gwilly Edmondez and Val Persona bring their (Eurasian) Hobby out of retirement for a special appearance just for us.
  • Territorial Gobbing: Theo brings the noise from Leeds as a replacement for Yol & Mariam: tapes, contact mics and clutter meld into a delicate and transient explosive hyper dynamic noise musique]

ws-cd002: what we do (neuschlaufen)

After a long period of silence on the recordings front, Wonkystuff are proud to present a new recording from neuschlaufen – a sprawling epic with touchpoints in ambient, jazz, krautrock and the spaces between them.

What do Neuschlaufen do?
simultaneously tense and mellow, an amalgamation of so many disparate elements that renders it difficult to place. And that’s all the more reason to rate this effort, that broadly sits in the brackets of avant-garde, experimental, jazz, and even post-rock and math-rock, albeit at their most minimal and most deconstructed. And that is what they do.

16: start by repairing our futures…

Unfortunately Aemær was unable to play, so we have a reshuffled lineup (and a completely unknown quantity in “Subida del Muerto”!!)
