KOGG's debut EP 'KOGG' is out now!
Available as a digital download and limited - edition CD (download inc) on Bandcamp
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.
In September 2021 KOGG performed a sell-out gig at the Festival of New at Snape Maltings.
After a week-long residency with Britten Pears Arts we bought new music from the studio to the stage at Snape Maltings in Suffolk. It was declared a great success!
In June 2022, KOGG performed our new piece ‘Belastica’, commissioned by Britten Pears Arts and inspired by the composer Béla Bartók at the Aldeburgh Festival at Snape Maltings. We were joined by the fantastic Ligeti String Quartet.
KOGG are in the final stages of completing their debut album.
