Joshua Legallienne is a Brighton-based guitarist exploring the elusive territory between silence and the barely audible. Operating primarily as a free improviser, he is interested in the spatial exploration of acoustic sounds through the steel string guitar. His live sets are wholly improvised – even the tuning of his instrument is decided instantaneously on stage – usually performing in tunings with which he has no prior experience. Although primarily unaccompanied and unamplified, recent performances have incorporated almost-silent sonic objects such as melting blocks of ice. Joshua runs ppppp., a label dedicated to releasing quiet music, whilst also appearing on various releases by labels such as Antithetic Records and Open Sound Group.
