Bringing together some of the most dynamic young British artists, Powerplant explores hi-octane percussion-led music with an electronic sound and strong visual performance. Led by percussionist Joby Burgess, the collective made its debut in July 2005, with a sell out performance at The Purcell Room, London. Since then Powerplant has performed extensively throughout the UK and was one of the few ensembles to perform at Steve Reich’s Barbican birthday celebrations ‘Phases’, in 2006.

At the heart of the Powerplant sound is the percussion and live electronics duo of genre trashing virtuoso, Joby Burgess and Liverpool-based composer and live sound engineer, Matthew Fairclough. Coupled with specially created film and live visuals from Bristol-based visual artist Kathy Hinde, the trio has created an experimental and challenging repertoire fusing seminal percussion works alongside their own work, improvisations and remixes.

Powerplant’s set of classic electronica from pioneering dance masters Kraftwerk was arranged in-conjunction with composer Ben Foster, and features the Elysian Quartet - one of the UK’s most innovative young ensembles, and the only British string quartet of its generation exclusively dedicated to twentieth-century and contemporary music.
