Atzi Muramatsu is a Japanese composer and cellist living in Edinburgh. His works encompass music for concerts, contemporary dance, poetry, painting, and films. His music features in three BAFTA winning films, one of which won Best Composer New Talent Award in 2016. He is a member of Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra and leads contemporary string quartet Lipsync for a Lullaby.
Bram E. Gieben is a writer, a musician and a Chemical Poet, and a member of the Writers Bloc live lit collective. A nihilist pariah and cyberpunk miserablist, he has spent the last 5 years as an illegitimate Glaswegian, and will soon be releasing his first SF collection, Human Plus, via Weaponizer Press.
Bram will be performing science-fiction-inspired verse and prose taken from his cyberpunk-themed albums ‘Neuroleptica’ and ‘ELEVATE / ILLVMINATE’, and his 2015 poetry collection and acclaimed Fringe show ‘Ex Nihilo’.
Mysterious musical duo, Markee de Saw and Bert Finkle, have haunted the Scottish Cabaret scene since 2009, slicing up the popular songbooks and stitching the scraps together to tell strange and beautiful stories. Their tools are words and music, voice and piano, hammers and saws.
Colin McGuire is a poet and performer from Glasgow, who lives in Edinburgh, who has written and performed relentlessly over the last fifteen years, building a reputation as a dynamic, engaging (and sometimes challenging) performer and poet. He has also been an ESOL teacher for the last seven years, teaching english young learners and adults from across Europe and the world.
Debbie Cannon is an actor, writer, and storyteller, and the voice of Edinburgh’s buses and trams. She was one of the Edinburgh City of Literature 2016 Storyshop emerging writers. She’ll be performing a one woman show, Green Knight, based on the Arthurian legend of Sir Gawain, at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe. Debbie is creative Director for Shoreline of Infinity’s Infinitesimals Audio Drama project.
Jonathan Whiteside is a Playwright and actor based in Edinburgh but originally from Galloway. He has had two of his youth plays published, The Hunt for Aiken Drum and Cloud Hopping which have been produced up and down the UK. Vaults, a site specific horror play, was performed in Cathedral Crypts in Whithorn, which he will be staging again in Edinburgh for Halloween this year. His acting work includes To Begin with the National Theatre of Scotland and many pantomimes and short plays with the Newton Stewart players including a successful run last year starring as Professor Marcus in The Ladykillers. His most recent acting work was in Seeing Stars with Debbie Cannon, written by Noel Chidwick and Pippa Goldschmidt. He will next be on stage in August acting in Vichy Goings On, a post-war, post-truth pantomime.
