About 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.

In September 2021KOGG 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! Pictures and video below. 

KOGG are in the final stages of completing their debut album due for release in 2022.
