Vernon & Burns

Vernon & Burns are a duo of sound makers who create radio plays, records and performances through an innovative mix of samples, field recordings, voice and music.

Dredging the kleptomanic plunderground, this singular double act in stereo create aural mystery from oral history. Rarely agreeing upon anything, their music is a tug-of-war between music hall and musique concrète. From the gently sublime to the raucously ridiculous they create a soundtrack to the notion of nonsense.

Performed across Europe, their eclectic live act encompasses everything from ventriloquism and magic to music hall and slapstick.

They have produced programmes for radio stations including VPRO, Resonance FM, WFMU and The Audible Picture Show and have had records released on Felix Kubin’s Gagarin Records, Staalplaat’s Mort Aux Vaches series and two LP’s with Lied Music released on Ultra Eczema and Shadazz.
