Centrifuge Workshop: developing an aesthetic II

Posted in Experimental Music, free improvisation, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2015 by electronicmusik

I took part in a fantastic improvisation workshop on Saturday (6th June) organised by the ever enterprising Centrifuge (Phil Morton et al).

Held at the MMU campus in Crewe, it was a chance to play and talk about performance in the here and now. Turned out to be a most thought provoking day with great contributions from all concerned. Took copious notes for further study. Great to perform a duo with Steve Lewis (voice) and a trio with Bruce Coates and Mark Haslip (saxes)

As well as performing Alex Cutteridge took these amazing photos

New CD from Wire Assembly on Found Property Label FP14

Posted in Electronic Musik, Experimental Music, free improvisation, other net labels with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2014 by electronicmusik

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.
