London-based Jonathan and Adam Bohman aka the Bohman Brothers, are known for their unique experimental sound based live performances which use found objects, text and an innumerable array of sound sources. Their humourous visual set-ups which resemble hard-wired flea markets, are the basis from which the duo, in the spirit of Fluxus, musique concrète and sound poetry, create their often grotesque soundscapes freely quoting from any source available to them. Found texts such as advertising spiel is juxtaposed with sounds ranging from amplified shoe brushes to a tape cutup of seventeenth-century instruments.

The Bohman Brothers frequently perform live throughout the UK and Europe and have for several years run one of the handful of London’s experimental music clubs at The Bonnington Centre in Vauxhall, south London. They also regularly appear on London’s art radio station Resonance 104.4FM.

For Art Now Live, the Bohman Brothers will be staging two separate newly commissioned performances in response to the works in two of the galleries.
