The Raw and the Cooked
are Jason Dixon and Edgar Curtis, a Norwich-based duo of composers and improvisors. They exploit custom hardware & software, voices, texts, costumes, video and narratives in their atmospheric doom-laden performances, exploring the boundaries between "natural" and "crafted", "found" and "produced", "raw" and "cooked".
Improvising within strict pre-defined structures, the trio create carefully sculpted sound worlds in which they situate found texts, often touching on the darker side of life.
The Raw and the Cooked tell stories. They generate soundtracks to the experiences you have yet to visit. They are purveyors of extremely acatalectic eschatological musings.
