Carole Finer: cumbus, assorted toys and percussive things
‘My first experience of collective music-making was in Cornelius Cardew’s experimental music classes at Morley College, then the Scratch Orchestra. After that, infrequent Scratch- or Cardew-related performances and a lot of obsessive banjo playing. Lately, irregular attendances at Eddie Prevost’s improvisation workshop and occasional improvising gigs. Improvising is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. No guidelines, no score, making sounds, listening to other sounds, reacting, responding, forgetting to listen, knowing when to stop… oh so very hard’.
