Main Motion Pool
















Main, was formed in 1991 by Robert Hampson and Scott Dawson, former members of Loop. They combine ambient sound with layers of electric guitars and dark, foreboding emotional overtones.
After performing in various bands, Robert Hampson's musical career really started in the mid 1980's with the band LOOP. He had previously worked on more experimental musics with his 4 track tape machine, but wanted to try the dynamics of a more traditional guitar based music, loosely influenced by bands such as The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, The MC5, but retaining an avant-garde and experimental edge from Can, Faust, Neu!, Rhys Chatham, Glenn Branca and minimalist systems music, to name but a few.

After the end of Loop in 1990, along with Scott Dowson (also of Loop) and with the guitar still as the central sound source, he returned to the more experimental styles of Electroacoustic and Acousmatic musics with the project MAIN.
