A live set and a chat with Cycle~ 440, a semi-improvisational electro-acoustic duo that fuses acoustic piano with extensive laptop sampling and processing.

Sam Gillies and Kevin Penkin met while studying a Bachelor of Music at WAAPA. Cycle~ 440 was formed in 2009 when they sought to fuse Kevin’s love of Japanese game and anime music and Sam’s appreciation for the delicate ambient and extreme noise genre’s. As Cycle~ 440 they maintain a national and international performance profile while releasing a steady stream of recordings.
