As a teenager he played drums in Skiffle and trad jazz bands before showing signs of the creative musician that was forming. After his initial exposure to his greatest influences Max Roach and Ed Blackwell, Prevost became fascinated with the endless possibilities of improvisation. He began incorporating all sorts of non-traditional percussion with his standard drum kit. In 1965 he co-founded the English improv ensemble AMM with saxophonist Leslie Gare and guitarist Keith Rowe. He also began recording with free jazz musicians Evan Parker, Marilyn Crispell, and Paul Rutherford. In the ’70s and ’80s, Prevost led his own quartet and recorded with Supersession, Resoundings, and Free Jazz Quartet. By 1990 he had formed the Masters of Disorientation with AMM alumni Gare and Rowe while also entering the techno/ambient realm, performing with GOD, Main, and EAR. When he isn’t performing with any combination of these ensembles, Prevost conducts workshops, gives lectures, and writes about improv for several magazines. He also runs his record label, Matchless Records. ~ Al Campbell, All Music Guide GERT-JAN PRIN Gert-Jan Prins has been known for twenty years as one of the most challenging sound artists in the Netherlands, . He is an autodidact who focuses on the sonic and musical qualities of electronic ‘noise’. In his work, Prins makes connections with modern electronic club culture, occupying a radical position with his investigation of electronic sound and its relationship to the visual. He also creates links with the performance art and machine art of the 1980s, which reshaped the legacy of industrial society to produce threatening, yet sometimes also sublime, encounters with technology. Prins has built various analogue- and digital electronic systems that create signals within the listenable audio domain. I hope to hear from you soon. Have a very nice week-end. Regards. Alain
