Who Exactly Are Moonn O)))?

...

Supersonic always throw in a few wild cards each year to surprise and astound you, and this year sees the inclusion of the mysterious collective known as Moonn O))). The project represents the meeting of several multi-disciplinary artists, primarily Mark Wagner and Sanna Charles of acoustic doom duo Sunday Mourning, and London based artist and illustrator Conny Prantera. In addition to his own music, Wagner has provided remixes for the likes of Teeth of The Sea and Gum Takes Tooth, whilst Prantera has previously unveiled exhibitions at Supersonic like the intricate video installation Kore Kosmou, so it’ll be fascinating to see how these different individuals combine their crafts into one unified experience. What’s even more exciting is that Moonn O))) also comprises several other artists (namely Emiliano Maggi of the experimental act Estasy, photographer Marko Righo and costume designers Kamellia McKayed and Gloria Carlos), who’ll be contributing their respective skills to what promises to be an utterly bizarre feast for the senses.

There are no prizes for guessing where these artists have drawn their inspiration for the project, but the angular, free-form sounds these individuals have created is quite a unique beast indeed, comprising low-level drones, murmured vocals, dark soundscapes and even a Roky Erickson cover. The collective will be debuting a conceptual performance, inspired “by the Heavens Above”, in a ritaulistic meeting of drone and performance art that’s sure to be a mystical and mysterious voyage for the more intrepid listener…

Meet Gum Takes Tooth

...

Gum Takes Tooth are London-based trio Valentina Magaletti (out of electronic noise types Shit & Shine), Thomas Fuglesang (out of Agaskodo Teliverek), and Jussi Brightmore (out of Infants). Here’s the deal: Thomas’ drums are physically wired to a table of homemade gadgets, which are controlled by Jussi, who uses the gadgets to modulate and distort the signal coming from the drums. The result of this electronic wizardry is a thunderous rampage of no wave noise, grunge and acid.

There isn’t that much live footage of them online, but lucky for us someone has recorded them on their shaky camera phone, and the sound and video are pretty good::

Based in Hackney, London, Gum Takes Tooth is a single headed beast with two bodies: a duo of Thomas Fuglesang on live trap drums physically wired into and triggering home grown electronic instruments, bare circuit boards, electrified African thumb piano and assorted crude noise making devices tweaked, moulded and mangled in real-time by Jussi Brightmore. Recent double drum live action with second kit from Valentina Magaletti of $hit & $hine and Buttonhead.
