Members include founder Tim Catlin, Dave Brown, Philip Brophy and Atticus Bastow. They perform using self built “vibrissa’ instruments. 

The group create drone-based, immersive soundscapes. Their performances explore and manipulate acoustic phenomena such as phasing, difference and beat tones, sympathetic vibrations and room resonance - a liminal zone where acoustic instruments vibrate with eerie electronic verisimilitude and familiar instruments sound strangely alien.
