Cycle~ 440 is the semi-improvisational electro-acoustic duo of Sam Gillies and Kevin Penkin that fuses acoustic piano with extensive laptop sampling and processing to create alternating soundscapes of extreme fragility and overwhelming density.

Sam Gillies and Kevin Penkin met while studying Music Composition at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Cycle~ 440 was formed in 2009 when they sought to fuse Kevin’s love of Japanese game and anime music with Sam’s appreciation for experimental ambient and extreme noise music. As Cycle~ 440 they create dense soundscapes that very between the hauntingly beautiful and dense and gritty.

After releasing their debut album “The Geography of Collapsing Structures” in 2011, their follow up recording “The Cartography of Shifting Planes” was launched on the new Perth label Twiceremoved Records in April, 2012. This album demonstrates this groups unique ability to fuse acoustic with electronic textures as well as highlighting their ability to create a diverse range of engaging sound with minimal materials.
