Dunk Murphy has been writing, performing and producing all manner of electronic music for the past ten years. As Sunken Foal and a member Ambulance, he has had releases on Planet-Mu, Black Acre, the Fear, Acroplane, Front End Synthetics to name but a few.
Championed by BBC1/XFM DJ Mary Anne Hobbs, his music covers a large area between vocal, plucked string folk and glitching, tumbling beats. While completing an MA in Music Technology in the University of Limerick, he furthered his research into generative audio techniques which he now fuses with more traditional compositional structures.
His "Friday Syndrome" album series is being released on www.countersunk.org along with unique editioned 50x70cm generative prints and t-shirts. Volume 3 is scheduled for release in Spring 2014. Joined onstage by Tim Redfern, his live show uses a unique audio / visual setup all being synched to a finger triggered, improvised MPC performance.
Over the past 6 months they have performed their works alongside LTJ Bukem, Biosphere, Clark, Hype Williams and Tropics at such festivals as Electric Picnic and Phase One.
