MEL O DUBHSLAINE:
In a ten year musical career Melanie Delaney (a.k.a. O’Dubhshlaine) has performed and composed music based in the noise, improvised, experimental and psychedelic rock genres.
Her solo work takes the form of two projects; Melanie O’Dubhshlaine concentrates on electronic composition, whilst Ocelocelot is centred in the noise genre. Her background in visual arts leads her to introduce visual elements into her performances. An overriding theme of her work is using unusual instrumentation to extend human expressive capabilities and give voice to previously unheard sounds.
She has collaborated with other artists including Neil Campbell, Ashtray Navigations, Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides, Bridget Hayden, Uton, John Moloney (Sunburned Hand of the Man) and MV & EE.
As a member of Ashtray Navigations she has appeared at All Tomorrow’s Parties (Nightmare Before Christmas, curated by Thurston Moore), Music Lover’s Field Companion in Gateshead, Incubate in Tilburg, Netherlands, Swn Festival in Cardiff and Sotto Voce at Cafe Oto, London, also touring the UK, Europe and USA.
FREAKING GLAMOROUS TEAPOT:
An enigma. An enema for your mind. Possibly your new enemy too. Playing buckets on their head and car parks, sometimes. What will happen next….? Sometime collaboration of composer Stephen Chase and improvisor Nathan Bettany.
