Maker Music: Meet your Artists: holzkopf


Jacob Hardy performs music under the name “holzkopf.” His interests are vast but are focussed on making dance music rooted in the traditions of detroit techno, dub mixing, free jazz and musique concrete. He mixes between a sampler he’s had since high school, a rejected drum machine and tapes in pitch control or modified tape decks. He often wires his equipment into feedback loops with each other so it gets confused. He will be playing a somewhat fluid, collage of beats, tapes, smooth bass lines and skronky noises.Jacob will be bringing his suitcase of electronic instruments, bent, broken and unchanged stuff.
