Laurie Tompkins writes
and performs playful, erratic music for instruments and electronics from bases
in Berlin and the UK. Since 2014’s Handy, where he reimagined hillbilly banjo
music with guitarist David Bainbridge from within a portable, battery-powered
light installation by Dori Deng, he increasingly performs in his own work.
Laurie has squealed his way through disruptive, desperate pieces at London’s
Cafe Oto, Aarhus’ Radar, and regularly in smaller venues in Berlin and
Manchester. He has also had commissions performed at the LSO Soundhub scheme in
London and been broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
