Amalgam brings together five Bristol musicians of different backgrounds for a live collaboration.

Be part of this unique experience where the unexpected happens.
H (Héloïse Thibault) is a French musician who uses electronics and tapes to create blissful drones and ritualistic rhythms. She also runs the record label Zamzam Records.
Sam Muscat is a drummer who is most known for his playing in the Lund Quartet. As well as providing a jazzy foundation for this group he also likes to create bass-heavy dub rhythms.
Skjølbrot (Dan Bennett) uses laptop and guitar to create sounds that combine field recordings with electronic drone and dark ambiences.

He is an accomplished improviser who is known for his playing in the groups Limbo
