Loula Yorke is a composer, sound artist and improviser who uses electronics, video and participation to create work that dances in the spaces where the personal meets the political. Yorke’s trademark improvised hardware-only live sets see her building abstract sonic collages into powerful beat workouts backed by kaleidoscopes of interlocking and repeating algorithmic melodies. She’s had radio play on BBC Radio 3, Radio 1 and 1XTRA, and coverage in Electronic Sound, The Wire, DJ Mag, and Bandcamp Daily, being described as “one of the most interesting voices in analog electronics”, and a “DIY noisenik champion!”

In 2020 her community-focused electronics practice was recognised with a Special Commendation from the Oram Awards. In 2021 she was commissioned by SPILL to create Atari Punk Girls, an audacious and energetic live show centred around noise, drone and dance music, co-composed with a group of female and minority gender teenagers who built their own instruments. Audiences recommended it as an “unexpected highlight of the festival”. Yorke is a Sound Generator artist for 2022, currently developing a new piece for ambisonic electronics and laser. She is releasing an 8-track album of new analog synthesiser music ‘Florescence’ in September 2022 on CD and digital.
