Through their collaboration Klara Lewis and Nik Colk Void explore the outer edges of space occupied within their respective musical solo projects. Guitars, synths, euro rack modular systems, voice, sampling and outboard processing are presented uncompromisingly when Lewis and Void's single approaches unite in a playful collage of sonic U-turns intertwining Pop and Noise bringing together their versions of tender techno and brutal ambient.
Presenting the project live, Lewis and Void are accompanied by the live visuals of Pedro Maia, following his 16mm analogue film manipulations as a point of departure, pushing the possibilities of materiality and form of the analogue and live medium. They have presented their work at international festivals and venues such as Dark MoFo (Tasmania), Ultima Festival at Henie Onstad Art Center (Oslo), L.E.V. Festival (Gijon), and the Conflux Festival (Rotterdam).
