John Bence, composer and producer from Bristol, tackles epic narrative themes and uncompromising sonics with a juddering emotional punch thru his work. Written during a residency at Zaragoza’s FUGA space, Bence’s visceral magnum-opus ‘KILL’ unfurls as a captivating and unnerving three-part suite, which, as Bence explains, “tells the story of a murderer who kills his lover, commits suicide and then accelerates towards God to be judged.”

Throughout Bence sings like a man possessed, shifting from aching operatic vocals and Gregorian chant to chilling screams, with symphonic instrumentation pounding, swelling and resolving into transfigurative calm behind him.

‘KILL’ was originally released on Nicholas Jaar’s Other People imprint and Yves Tumor’s label Grooming, to critical acclaim from The Wire, amongst others.
