Charlotte CHW: body / movement
Jason Williams: saxophone

Jason Williams is known for his sometimes blood-spattered experiments with electric guitars and panes of glass. Charlotte CHW makes visceral performance art. Together they form the new duo Hysteresis, and they describe it thusly:

“Static and kinetic abstract formations. Body-object relations. Stage as palette, Tableau Vivant noise constructions. Contact / instant composition. Shared electronic signal generation. Auto-destruction. Trigger objects. Reaction cues.”
