"Dr X is a spoken word / video / electronic music performance evoking the feel of an illustrated surreal science lecture. The piece takes as its starting point, a fragment of the lost 1930s horror film, Dr X, and expands it into an essay on the dawn of the age of electricity in 1930's New York. Ken Hollings, Graham Massey and Howard Walmsley, the three members of BTAL (Biting Tongues Arts Lab) have collaborated together since 1979. Ken Hollings is a writer and broadcaster, Howard Walmsley is a film director/producer/musician, Graham Massey is an international recording artist remixer and producer credits include his own bands 808state, Toolshed and Homelife along side collaborations as diverse as Bjork to Robbie Williams, Brian Eno to Quincy Jones."
