‘My name is Albert Cirera. I’ve been playing sax for almost 25 years now. I’ve been touring, playing and recording in many different countries in the last 12 years. I’m from Barcelona but I live in Copenhagen. I come from the jazz school but since some years ago I’m interested in improvised music.
‘My saxophone solo is based on sound exploration through multiphonics and extended techniques, using different preparations to find new sound and vibrations. I have a tendency for drone sounds that are being altered to create minimalistic rhythms and melodies.
‘At the same time I have a strong sense of melody and lyricism that might appear in any situation, or atmosphere, always surprising me and the audience.
This is one of the 40 solos that I’m doing this year. A kind of ritual to celebrate that I’ve been 40 years in this planet’.
Andrew Lisle, a drummer based in London. He strives to push the limits of possibility on his instrument. He plays with/has played with: Kodian Trio, John Edwards, Alex Ward, Rodrigo Amado, Colin Webster, John Dikeman, Kit Downes, to name a few.
“Lisle, at 27 is already one of the most original drummers in the UK” – The Quietus
