Basic Switches

The solo project of Hilary Knott of Cowtown fame, Basic Switches is exactly how electronic music should be. Live, organic and a glistening sea of weird and wonderful sounds. It’s music driven directly by the tools that make it – the Basic Switches set up is a plethora of, in her own words, ‘cheap 80s synths, unpopular, obsolete drum machines, human vox and kids toys, home made, broken, circuit bent and/or found in bins’. The magic of her music comes from the irregular repititions of sound dictated by the items itself - a particular highlight being the chatter of a 'Gizmo' (of Gremlins fame) toy narrating the fluctuations of sound.
