A very special series of sonic episodes brings together US mixed-media composer/saxophonist Matana Roberts and UK improviser and flautist Kelly Jayne Jones. These are two artists from disparate backgrounds, finding affinity in practices charged by fiercely personal philosophies on sound and its potential within a patchwork of genre, texture and meaning. Matana is an internationally renowned composer, band leader, saxophonist, sound experimentalist and mixed-media practitioner. Whilst Kelly Jayne Jones makes use of varying combinations of prepared recordings, text, rocks, found sounds and flute.
Matana and Kelly will weave their own approaches into live collaborative works informed by deeply expressive playing, tactile electro-acoustic interplay and a broader shared politics of resistance/defiance.
This performance is commissioned by OUTLANDS; The new national experimental music touring network and is supported by Arts Council England and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
Date: Thursday 17 May
