Ben and Max are winners of h100 theatre and performance award 2019.
In collaboration with Ella Hickson, they created ‘Anna’. A headphone based show at the National Theatre. Set in Berlin in the 1960’s they used binaural sound design to immerse the audience and create a unique theatrical experience.
They have worked together for over 20 years. Initially as Narcosis producing Drum and Bass and Breakbeat for seminal dance label React, then as two thirds of avant-pop band Superthriller with whom they have released four albums, toured extensively in the UK and Europe, played to large festival crowds and supported Beck on the European leg of his Guerro tour.
In 2001 they became associate artists with the Shunt collective, collaborating on large scale site specific shows such as Dance Bear Dance (2002), Tropicana (2004) and Amato Saltone (2006). The last two of these were supported by the National Theatre and this led to an invitation from Nicholas Hytner to score Henry IV (2005) in the Olivier theatre.
Max and Ben have produced scores and sound designs for major productions extensively through out the UK and beyond. They continue to be associate artists with Shunt and have collaborated on dance pieces with The Place and Sadlers Wells.
In 2017 they worked on 'The Inspection Chamber ', a unique drama to be played/heard on Alexa, completed a new Superthriller album and began work on a new Wiretapper project.
