Bad Whip is the improvisational dance music duo of Alex Reid (drums) and Josiah Padmanabhan (synths) of prominent Perth outfit Grievous Bodily Calm. The partner setting allows the duo to explore pure improvisation and reactivity within a drum machine techno driven universe. Bad Whip acts as a means to create spontaneous composition and to test the boundaries of their musical connection formed over the last five years of intense writing, recording and performing together. Bad Whip have played festivals such as the Wave Rock Weekender and RTRFM’s Radiothon as well as numerous residencies’ around town. The future will see Bad Whip recording their debut effort and further experimentation in the interface between produced and live music.
