Gnod (R&D) is a stripped back version of the band consisting for this outing of Gnod co-founders Paddy Shine and Chris Haslam. After 10 years of Gnod with over 40 players passing through the ranks and collaborations with the likes of Charles Hayward, Faust and Anthony Child (Surgeon) to name but a few, Gnod (R&D) is a chance to hit the road again. R&D will find Paddy and Chris improvising with new instruments, sounds and ideas. At NEXT, their performance will be accompanied by the specially commissioned live visuals of VJ, creative coder and theatre director GND aka Peter Gonda.
