From Helsinki, Finland, Lauri Hyvärinen’s ‘guitar is delicate. His playing switches freely between Sonny Sharrock’s wild frenzy and Lenny Breaus’ velvet touch… Daniel Thompson is a guitarist and improvising musician currently living in Hackney, London. He was born in Norfolk, England in 1981 and other than a couple of years playing violin as a child, his musical studies didn’t seriously begin until his late teens. Largely self-taught, after moving to London in 2006 Daniel embarked upon a life changing period studying with the guitarist John Russell for two years, who “provided me with one of the richest and most rewarding musical experiences of my life”.
Marcello Magliocchi is a musical explorer performing and recording solo and in a variety of genres including jazz, improvised music, sound installations and live music for silent movies. Adrian Northover can currently be heard playing on the London club scene with a wide range of musicians, including the London Improvisers Orchestra, as well as doing solo saxophone performances. Recent gigs include playing at John Russells ‘Qua Qua’ festival, performing to films with Trip-tik at The Cinema Museum, and various gigs at The Horse Improv Club
