She has released and has relationships with Alien Passengers, c a d u c., Impulsive Habitat, Recital, and Kye, and has a book, Second Person, forthcoming from Philip Best’s new Amphetamine Sulphate imprint.

Kostis Kilymis is a Greek-born artist based in Bristol. He performs electronic and noise music based on live synthesis, rhythm and found sound. His work focuses on immersive environments, feedback systems and the notion of representation. He has been an improviser, performer and collaborator – his encounters including Lucio Capece, Nikos Veliotis, Greg Pope, Leif Elggren, Sarah Hughes, Stephen Cornford and Phil Julian amongst others. He has toured extensively throughout Europe and has published works on labels such as Rekem, I Dischi del Barone and Strange Rules.
