We are David Ben Shannon (Liverpool, England) and Sarah E. Truman (Hamilton, Canada/Melbourne, Australia). The queer trans-continental glitch-folk band Oblique Curiosities is our research-creation practice.

Our research interests include songwriting, affect theory, queer theory, Doctor Who (and other SF).

Our music influences include Fever Ray, Joe Hisaishi, Brian Eno, Kate Bush, Tunng, and Everything Everything.

Stay tuned for an Oblique Curiosities album in summer 2019.
