Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we host [Modern Ritual] – a night of new performances exploring ideas of ritual through music and words, evoking real and fictional landscapes. Featuring solo sets from Charles Hayward, Laura Cannell and Hoofus, a new collaboration between Laura & Charles and a new performance/talk by Jennifer Lucy Allan and a reading from Luke Turner.
Two digital releases this week, with a brace of Confront recordings featuring contributions from the abstract, onkyo guitarist, Taku Sugimoto. Both Foldings and 10tet are pools of near silence – each breath, chair creak, string scrape, or restrained tone adding to a a subtly gradated palette. With no player forcing a narrative arc, there’s phenomenal patience to this approach, as each is instead willing to let things sit with quiet intention and reflection.
Hope to see you here.
