Deprogram is composer and electronic music producer, Mary Mainsbridge. Joined on stage by producer, programmer and keyboardist, Nick Mainsbridge; drummer, Robbie Mudrazija; and video artist, J D Young, the audiovisual outfit generate improvised soundscapes and projections based on rhythmic and vocal improvisations. Deprogram has performed locally and internationally at clubs and festivals including Bleepfest (UK), BZoom (Czech Republic), Electrofringe and Australian Linux conferences.

Deprogram uses customised open source software and DIY controllers in composition and performance. Looking beyond commercial hardware to find more depth of expression, Deprogram has devised a program called Smokescreen that uses body movements to mix sounds and projections.
