An evening of Improv and experimental folk, Jazz, electronica
Achingly beautiful and earthy grit.


Martin Archer – woodwinds

Fran Comyn – percussion

Richard Jackson – percussion

Jan Todd – psaltery. tagelharpa, harp, electronics, field recordings

Formed as a quartet with a view to making improvised music and instant compositions which avoid the highly active language of free improvisation and which might instead tend towards more ritual or even contemporary classical music.

Expect the sonic atmosphere of the elemental, tempered by sounds ” from the rough hill” (Fjall)

This quartet can move from the achingly beautiful to an earthy grit in soundscapes in a heartbeat!

Support comes from:

Nick Robinson – solo guitar improvisation

“A haunting immersive experience. All shades of guitar sonics – meandering stretched sustained single notes, handfuls of startling metallic discordance fading away to the last vibration of a tone Ghostly fleeting poignant melodies… always surprising – relaxing, transportive, never boring….” Sonja Kristina (Curved Air)
