Artist Biographies:

"Douglas Benford is an English musician, curator, producer and co-founder of Sprawl. He lives and works in London, UK. Benford has had many recorded releases under many guises: mainly as Si-cut.db, but also Radial Blend, Phoenix Jig, Pantunes Music & Media Form (via Douglas's own imprint Suburbs Of Hell), covering electronica/drum n' bass/ambient, then microsound, glitch, dub and lately acoustic improvisation. He's the leader of the Brenford Underground DRUM AND BASS MAHOOSIVE sOUNd SySteM.

Benford has performed at various venues such as London's Tate Modern, The Roundhouse, Science Museum, Brentford's Watermans and Colchester's Art Centres as well as international festivals Synch, Mutek, Transmediale, and Bestival.

The first SI-CUT.DB release was in 1991, as SIDE>>CUT.DB (with later moniker LOVE>>CUT.DB). As Si-cut.db, Benford collaborated with Stephan Mathieu, Benge, Saint Etienne, Andrew Weatherall, Marc Weiser of Rechenzentrum and Momus amongst others. In 1999, Si-cut.db was ranked in the top 200 of US College Radio acts.

n 1996, Benford and Iris Garrelfs (German-born musician and photographer) founded and curated the London-based experimental music club Sprawl, described as 'underground playground and test tube for current sound'. Benford also runs the offshoot label Sprawl Imprint.

Its regular events have become a benchmark of experimental, electronic music. Artists featured have included Kim Cascone, Scanner, Talvin Singh, Kaffe Matthews, Christian Fennesz, Hayley Newman and more. Other events include the Interplay Festivals, SonicRecycler, the Groundswell Festival at ICA, as well presenting Vladislav Delay and Rosy Parlane at a concert organised in conjunction with the Tate ModernŐs educational department and the Finnish Institute."
