Using a combination of feedback, conventional guitar techniques, and instrumental preparations, London-based electric guitarist James O’ Sullivan exploits the full sonic potential of electric guitar, amplifier and the environment in which both are placed. His interest in improvisation, recording and performance has led him to record and perform internationally, both solo, and with numerous improvised music groups. More longstanding arrangements include Found Drowned, a power-trio with Pete Marsh and Paul May, and his collaboration with Thanos Chrysakis on several releases on the Aural Terrains exploratory music label. His debut solo album ‘feed back couple’, was released on the Forwind label in 2011.
