NO Moore/Rachel Musson/Atsuko Kamura/Iris Ederer/David O’Connor/Eddie Prévost. Saturday 17th November 19:30

NO Moore’s guitar playing combines elements syphoned off from the short history of the electric guitar, from the Blues to Free Improvisation, and combines them with a love of early electronic experimentalism, synthesis, and musique concrète.  The result is an often surprising sound world for electric guitar, encompassing both a loose respect for its traditions and a commitment to what follows. With Eddie Prévost and John Edwards, he can be heard on the recent Matchless Recordings release ‘Darkened, yet shone’.

Rachel Musson is a saxophonist, improviser and composer living in London, UK. She is involved with a variety of improvisation projects, including a trio with Hannah Marshall and Julie Kjaer, a duo with vibraphonist Corey Mwamba, and a trio with Mark Sanders and John Edwards. She has released two albums under her own name, one featuring Liam Noble and Mark Sanders (Tatterdemalion, Babel Records), and one featuring her ensemble Skein (Flight Line, F-ire Recorded Music). She also plays with the London Improvisers Orchestra and Alex Ward’s Quintet and Sextet, as well as with a variety of other musicians on the fluid European improvising scene.

Atsuko Kamura: Japanese agit-femme vocalist and electricist. Former member of Frank Chickens and Mizutama Shobodan (Polka Dot Fire Brigade): first Japanese feminist punk band. Voice-modulated improvisation and eco-surrealist chansons are weaved into the bizarre world of the experimental.

Austrian born musician Iris Ederer is a versatile singer who is at home in various styles of music from jazz to contemporary composition and free improvisation. She has always been fascinated by the shapes and sounds available either inside or outside of songs, irrespective of idiom.

David O’Connor plays saxophone and flute and intends to continue to do so.

Eddie Prévost plays with immense fire, grace and invention. Founder of the essential AMM, collaborator of the greatest improvisers internationally, since the 60’s he has kept a continuous contact with the scene and always manages to invent anew his contribution to “meta-music”.

“Prévost’s free drumming flows superbly making use of his formidable technique. It’s as though there has never been an Elvin Jones or Max Roach.” – Melody Maker

“Relentlessly innovative yet full of swing and fire.” – Morning Star
