Vocals, Guitars, Soundscapes
Art Rock singer, songwriter and guitarist. Grice writes emotional, dark and deeply personal songs and delivers sonic missiles aimed at the heart.
His style of shimmering musical alchemy and the restless and challenging cocktail of electro-acoustic glitch, art-rock and avant-pop synthesis he produces has lead to collaborations with high profile musicians including Richard Barbieri (Japan, Rain Tree Crow, Porcupine Tree), Steve Jansen (Japan), Hossam Ramzy (Peter Gabriel), BJ Cole and Raphael Ravenscroft amongst others.
GRICE plays live as a solo, duo and trio outfit but also with a full art rock band, (Al Swainger - bass, Ric Byer/05Ric - drums).
More recently GRICE has been on a mini solo tour of dates supporting Richard Barbieri with long time collaborater Dunca Chave (loops, scapes). GRICE will be joined this year by Luca Calabrese (freeform Trumpet) from Milan who has featured on both GRICE solo albums and by Fred Ehresmann on piano and keys.
Ableton Live, loops & programming
Sound designer and programmer Duncan plays Eigenharp and uses Ableton/Stutter edit and triggers loops live during the shows.
Working closely with GRICE as engineer in the studio and live sound facilitator, Duncan Chave spins virtual samples and mangled loops into the live shows helping to create intense musical landscapes rich with glitch, stuttered vocals and musical cut-ups.
