“Over the last 40 odd years, free improvisation in Britain has shown itself capable of renewal and innovation on several occasions. Mark Wastell has made an important contribution to this renewal. His work has generated sufficient interest and influence for it to attract new movement and genre labels from writers and critics, and it has sent ripples through both UK and international improvised music. However, no sooner has one label been applied, than Mark has moved on to new territory”. (Stuart Riddle)
Luigi Marino is a musician based in London. His work focuses on networks able to display relationships between human and nonhuman actors, with particular attention to how intuitive decisions can profoundly affect pre-existing conditions. He is an active improvisor performing on both electronic media and percussion, especially zarb and bowed custom cymbals.
Currently, he often plays solo, in duo with Michael Thieke, Mark Wastell and Mandhira de Saram, and in Mark Wastell’s large ensemble The Seen.
