Battery Operated have been working together since 2000 when they met in Melbourne, Australia. Made up of Tomkz (sound), Wade Walker (sound) and beewoo (video), their first release was ‘Chases Through Non-Place’ on Mixer records from Amsterdam in 2000. After releasing this album they decided to start their own label…..hence C0C0S0L1DC1T1. Their second album – ‘Vecuum’ – was the labels first release and things went on from there. Touring for 3 years across Australia, New Zealand, Europe, USA and Canada, meant too many bad aircraft meals but also brought around many invites from festivals and galleries around the world. Along with doing installations often connected to the themes dealt with on their albums, Battery Operated undertook remixes for a slew of artists and appeared on compilations such as Bip Hop’s Generation series. After re-releasing ‘Chases Through Non-Place’ as a double CD with the associated video presented, they have released all their albums through C0C0S0L1DC1T1, including ‘Aprotic’ by Battery Operated + Made (Mike Williamson of the Gescom, Skam crew from Manchester). Their subsequent album ‘re.CORD’ found them reworking conspiracy theories from artists such as Richard.H.Kirk, Sachiko.M, Gate and label mate ‘Identification’. For this project the video artist - Emma McRae undertook the 52-minute video work which sits on the DVD.

Beewoo
www.beewoo.net

Beewoo has shown her work throughout many galleries, festivals and media events around the world over the past 5 years. Using Image/ine, VNS and Max MSP, she has been producing interactive environments for gallery spaces and then taking those applications into clubs and media events to take the visual aspect of club/media spaces to another place…away from icandyville. Her painstaking video work produced for Battery Operated CD releases and live performances have made folks think differently about how visual environments interact with sound, the proof of this being that people come to see her video work as much as they do to listen to the sound. Given her training in the visual arts as a photographer, it also means that she has been producing artwork and photographs for album covers as well, producing work for David Shea + Scanner, Battery Operated and Identification amongst others.
