Demdike Stare

Demdike Stare is a collaboration between Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker, two childhood friends from the North of England with voracious appetites
for record collecting. After years spent mining vinyl bins for source material, the pair started working in earnest back in 2008, re-appropriating sounds they had spent a lifetime cataloguing into weird and immersive music of their own. Demdike have so far produced a trio of albums (Symbiosis, Tryptych and Elemental) loosely themed around the occult and the rich heritage of Library music, while a number of intriguing mixtapes released over the last couple of years have indicated that the project is headed in new and unexpected directions.

In 2013 the first in an ongoing series of exploratory 12"s brought together under the 'Testpressing' banner appeared on Modern Love, finding
Demdike heading onto more intense, brutal terrain. Inspired by everything from Industrial music to Noise, Free Jazz to House, Techno and Concrète - Demdike Stare have refused to rest on their laurels or become too comfortable with their surroundings, something that's perhaps most evident when evaluating the sheer scale of the projects they have undertaken in the last 18 months. From live-scoring films for the BFI to more commercial soundtrack work in Hollywood, from their 'Concealed' productions with Krakow’s Sinfonietta Cracovia, to the esoteric selections of their 'Before My Eyes' sessions with Raime/BEB and the searing late night sets anyone lucky enough to have seen them play will no doubt have imprinted on their minds - you just never know what mood you'll find them in.
