Sound artist and researcher Amit Dinesh Patel aka Dushume started working in the field of music technology in 2000. In 2021, he began a research project addressing the distinctive lack of visibility for Black and Brown artists within the field of experimental music and sound: "Exploring Cultural Diversity in Experimental Sound", hosted at the Sound/Image Research Centre, University of Greenwich.

Disruptive Frequencies is one output of this research. Patel, together with five other Black and South Asian experimental and electronic artists recorded new music to release as part of this compilation:

Gary Stewart aka Bantu www.garystewart.org
Aniruddha Das aka Dhangsha - dhangsha.bandcamp.com
Amit Dinesh Patel aka Dushume - www.dushume.co.uk
Nikki Sheth - nikkisheth.myportfolio.com
Nicole Raymond aka NikNak - www.niknakdjmusic.uk
Poulomi Desai - www.usurp.org.uk / poulomidesai.tumblr.com

Crossing noise, high-energy electronic music, deep bass, ambient and experimental soundscapes, this compilation is a statement challenging institutional Whiteness, racist biases, lack of visibility and access to experimental practices. Each contribution pushes the boundaries of sound manipulation, turntablism, field recording, audio fragmentations and sound collage techniques.

Find out more about the project and its findings via www.dushume.co.uk.

Join us for the compilation launch at King's Place on 15th July: www.kingsplace.co.uk/whats-on/contemporary/nonclassical-disruptive-frequencies/
