Keef Winter is based in Space Studios in London. He works using a material language he calls the Handyman Aesthetic combining his interests in art & architecture with sculpture, installation, drumming and performance. Winter's studio process generates abstract apparatus that reference urban dissonance and reflect on cultish practices. Often his structural installations directly respond to the space where shown.
'Handyman' is a new music performance act by Winter. His track-list is a medley of everyday feelings sung for you, with songs like 'High-street girl', 'Wandering hands' and 'I'm squatting in your condo', Winter will test the acoustic properties of Obrera Centro in February during Zona Maco Art Fair, using a high-energy drumming style alongside some heavy bass and slippery dance moves.
Bio: Winter has been releasing music since the year 2000 when the legendary BBC radio DJ John Peel played Winter's 7" vinyl records as part of Irish instrumental rock band Tracer AMC. Winter has toured the UK, Ireland, Europe and Japan multiple times as well as receiving press in WIRE magazine, NME, Drowned in Sound, Guardian, Irish Times and many more. His more recent electro-punk band Not Squares has played Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, Latitude, Electric Picnic festivals as well as recording numerous BBC Radio Sessions including a Maidavale studio session for Huw Stephens in 2009.
