New CD from Wire Assembly on Found Property Label FP14

Wire Assembly the free improvising guitar trio based in Sheffield have a new CD out on Found Property as of February 2014.

A recent Review of the last Wire Assembly release said:

The playing is a pleasure to listen to. The improvisations never lose focus or momentum—all three guitarists are adept at throwing out and accepting gambits, and often finishing each other’s phrases while doing so. The tasks of comping, playing single note lines and even hinting at a bassline—as Jasnoch does on occasion—are continually shifted around, keeping the sound moving ahead. Particularly exciting are those moments when a spontaneous, obliquely jazz-like chord progression breaks out, as when Jasnoch and Simpson do the free improv equivalent of chase choruses over Carver’s motile harmonies.

Posted in blog, Experimental Music, free improvisation, gigs, live music, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2013 by electronicmusik

Co-produced with Sound and Music and supported by Arts Council England, Mopomoso’s first ever UK tour will take place between 23rd and 30th of April 2013.

Each night of the tour will be unique as local musicians from each city join the line-up.
With a firm focus on free improvisation, musical references could range from jazz, rock,
folk, classical, electronic, world and computer-generated music, representing the broad
brush stroke spirit of inclusion embodied in the Mopomoso aesthetic.

Not to be missed, a superb array of the UK’s top improvisors, I’ll be at the Sheffield one for sure !
