Grok are an improvisational group based in East London. Their sound incorporates post-rock guitars, melodic bass, responsive rhythms and atmospheric electronics. They create immersive soundscapes, exploring the possibilities that arise in the present moment which makes all their performances unique and never to be repeated.

In April Grok will perform a live score to the Sergei Eisenstein's BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN.

When they are fed rancid meat, the sailors on the Potemkin revolt against their harsh conditions. Led by Vakulinchuk (Aleksandr Antonov), the sailors kill the officers of the ship to gain their freedom. Vakulinchuk is also killed, and the people of Odessa honor him as a symbol of revolution. Tsarist soldiers arrive and massacre the civilians to quell the uprising. A squadron of ships is sent to overthrow the Potemkin, but the ships side with the revolt and refuse to attack.
