Taupe are a Newcastle upon Tyne based trio specialising in razor-sharp polyrhythmic play, exploratory improvisation and raw, high energy live performance.The group’s sound is built of influences drawing from free jazz and math metal to hip-hop grooves and post-bop, with a healthy dollop of skronk, all navigated down a path that seeks to blur the line between carefully constructed rhythmic compositions and explosive group improvisation.

Adam Stapleford: Drums
Mike Parr Burman: Guitar
Jamie Stockbridge: Saxophone


Pypt Lim is the performance name for electronic music projects by Bob Percy, exploring live improvised electronic music. Alongside visceral single take synthesiser improvisations Percy is a keen collaborator, most recently working with shadow puppeteer Zannie Fraser of Ripstop Theatre.
