Live Performance Event
(STEVE CAMMACK) – Steve lives by the sea in East Devon. Steve is a non musician, a noise musician, a nonsician. Steve started making noises back in 1979, experiments on cassettes, Short-Wave Radios, Interferences, synthesiser noises encouraged and influenced by the UK DIY scene and Industrial Music of that period. Most of the 1980’s was spent in the independent cassette culture releasing a variety of tapes with many collaborators. Steve works with manipulated acoustic sounds. Percussion, metals, glass as well as the spoken word. Operating ‘beneath the radar’ (as he prefers to call it) Steve has built a heavy arsenal of releases over the past 39 years under various pseudonyms and with a variety of collaborations. He is most recognised for his involvement in the sound project DIETER MUH and his radio broadcasts as MUHMUR RADIO on Soundart Radio (Dartington). DIETER MUH. have released sounds on labels as diverse as Harbinger Sound, Hanson Records, Tesco Org, EE Tapes, The Epicurean, Xerxes and Sound Holes as well as Steve’s own label Haemoccult Recordings.
