Benedict Taylor : solo viola
Doors 4pm | music 4:30 | free entry
In 2012 I began a recording series called ‘Subverten: For Viola Solo’. It was a personal working project and umbrella for my own viola experimentation.
After 10 years this project, as well as pushing me to look and go further, has also helped to clarify and focus what I am doing (or at least attempting to do), shedding some light on ongoing repetitive processes that I’m actively involved in. Marking its 10th year, Decade is also the 10th entirely solo recording, and 11th solo record so far.
Hundred Years Gallery has been a home to numerous players and artists in the improvised and new music world. It has supported and promoted, given creative freedom to artists requiring space and time, welcomed musicians from all over the world, and is a bastion of and friend to the arts, free music and creative thinking in London. Many thanks to Montse Gallego & Graham Makeachan for the opportunity to create this album, and for their continued support and development of so much new work that is taking place in East London.
