A pioneer and leading light of New York's downtown scene for over 30 years, Elliott Sharp is a brilliantly gifted performer, composer and producer. He'll be performing 'The Velocity of Hue', a jaw-dropping solo guitar programme built on his love of country blues guitar and Central Asian musics, full of loose grooves and avant-garde improvisation.

Swiss-American artist Christian Marclay is a pioneer of turntable experiments, described as 'the most influential turntable figure outside hip hop'. He gives a twist to the idea of 'cut and splice', creating new material from cut up and reassembled vinyl to make fantasy remixes in what he calls his 'theatre of found sound'. He has worked with hundreds of artists including John Zorn, Fred Frith, Christian Wolff, Otomo Yoshihide, Arto Lindsay, and Sonic Youth.
