KOGG

KOGG is an experimental electronic collaboration between Selena Kay and Cerys Hogg, a fusion of their diverse musical backgrounds and collective interests. Formally trained in classical and jazz disciplines respectively KOGG’s music is a synthesis of composed, improvised and generative elements creating a kaleidoscopic sound world of elastic rhythms and shifting melodies, fabricated with an ear for both the familiar and the unknown.

KOGG’s sonic palette is derived from real and home-made instruments, objects and manipulated vocals. Source sounds include ping pong balls bouncing on drums, train whistles, elastic bands, wax cylinder recordings and trombone. Their material is fed through a variety of transformational processes utilising an array of hardware and software instruments, taking the listener on a multi-textured musical journey which is rhythmically exciting and sonically rich.

Currently completing their debut album, KOGG are preparing to bring their music from the studio to the stage. They are very excited to have been selected for a residency at Britten Pears Arts at Snape Maltings in Suffolk. 

 

In September 2021, as part of the Festival of New at Snape Maltings, KOGG will perform music from their album.
