Mark Wastell’s long-standing metamorphic group The Seen makes a very welcome return to the gallery.

“It is the changeable aspect of the group that attracts its members. In varying the framework of ensemble size, mixture of acoustic and electronic instrumentation, and various pairings and contrasts of instruments and musicians, Wastell sets up active playing environments that both challenge the members to consider how to engage, while encouraging them to bear in mind the overall group sound. He acts more as instigator than leader, providing the simplest of instructions such as a sub-grouping to begin the piece or what order musicians are to enter and places full trust in the ensemble from there.” (Michael Rosenstein)

The Seen’s last visit to the gallery can be found here confrontrecordings.bandcamp.com
