Parkinson Saunders consists of the composer performers Tim Parkinson and James Saunders. Seated at two tables, their instrumentation comprises any sound producing means other than conventional instruments. This can include lo-fi electronics, ordinary objects, toys, vocalisations and other natural sound sources, resulting in a table-top orchestra of possibilities. Their repertoire centres around experimental music that can be realised in a multiplicity of ways, and music that involves very elementary sound production.


They have performed at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Cut and Splice, BMIC Cutting Edge, Q-02 (Brussels), SAN Expo, Oxford Museum of Modern Art, Borealis Festival (Bergen), Blurred Edges (Hamburg), York Late Music Festival, Soundwaves and Tate Modern, as well as being broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
