Immersion is a free-entry experimental music/sound-art event featuring a soundtrack of electronic atmospheres, noisescapes, pulses/rhythms and tones/drones.
Immersion is an arena for new and established artists performing live experimental electronic music; using laptops, synthesizers, field recordings, circuit-bent electronics and prepared/processed instruments.
All sounds are partnered by stimulating projected visuals processed live and tailored for each performance.

Magnumquilter has been rocking open-minded parties in Wales and the Southwest with a live set that mixes horror-movie ambience and disembodied voices with glitched, ‘Autechre-ish’ distorted beats.
Experiments with lo-fi electronics, noise and field recordings have been used to produce drones and repetitions - creating minimalist tracks that lie somewhere between machine-noise and 1970's sci-fi horror soundtracks.
The Jones Memorandum:
A one man sound project that originally had no intention of going further than the kitchen table. Simplistic beats, velvet chords and the wondrous metronomic melody of various photocopier machines are guaranteed.
pixelpusher (Evan.Raskob) is a live video performance artist, or "pixelist". After a few years of pixel-pushing across New York City, he now plies his trade on the mean streets of London. pixelpusher generates video out of a controlled chaos of photographic images, simple shapes, animations, sounds, and live video feeds. All software is homemade, all imagery is created live; things may go wrong in beautiful ways, and no performance is ever the same.
