Anvil & Stirrup is the collaborative project of composers Iain Armstrong and Antti Sakari Saario. Their practice combines acousmatic sensibilities, live electronics, improvisation and multi-channel spatialisation. Iain Armstrong (Anvil) is a composer/sound artist based in Birmingham, Antti Sakari Saario (Stirrup) is an award winning fixed-media composer based in Cornwall. Robert Curvengen is an Australian composer/sound artist living in Cornwall.

His work spans immersive resonances via turntables and custom-made vinyl, instrumental harmonics and guitar feedback, through to carefully detailed field recordings from remote areas where he lived for many years. It draws on the physicality of sound - not just the physical impact on the body but the way in which the auditory can shape our perception of space and the flow of time. Matt Davis has been working in improvised and experimental music since 1994, using trumpet and field recordings. He has also been director of ‘Field’, a live art/performance project since 2003. His work investigates the question of sound (noise) as music; music as a tool for improvisation; improvisation as a tool for the creation of a space of encounter, not as a projection of a concept, but a space (place) which can be entered conceptually, experientially or otherwise.
