Wadada Leo Smith was born in Leland, Mississippi, in 1941 and trained as a musician through the US military band program, at the Sherwood School of Music, and at Wesleyan University. In the 1960s and 1970s Smith worked with the Chicago-based Association for the Advancement of Creative Music. He was on the faculty at California Institute of the Arts until his retirement in 2013. Previously Smith taught at the University of New Haven; the Creative Music Studio, Woodstock, NY; and Bard College. He performs with the Golden Quartet, Silver Orchestra, and Organic ensemble, and his compositions have been performed by AACM-Orchestra, Kronos Quartet, New York Music Ensemble, and California E.A.R. Unit. In 2015 Smith’s work was featured in a solo exhibition at the Renaissance Society in Chicago and as part of the group exhibition The Freedom Principle: Experiments in Art and Music, 1965 to Now, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. His awards and commissions include the MAP Fund Award for Ten Freedom Summer (2011); Chamber Music America New Works Grant (2010); NEA Recording Grant (2010); John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship (2009–10).

John Tilbury is renowned for his peerless interpretation of the piano music of Morton Feldman, John Cage, Christian Wolff and Howard Skempton. In addition to the performances and seminal recordings that he has made of these composers’ works, he has been an eloquent advocate of their music in his writing and speaking about them. The same is true of the attention he has paid to the music and ideas of Cornelius Cardew, the subject of his authoritative biography published in 2008, and with whom he played in the legendary improvisation groups the Scratch Orchestra and AMM. In the last ten years John Tilbury has performed a range of plays and prose pieces by Samuel Beckett.
Bertrand Gauguet plays alto saxophone in contexts of solo and group improvisation – many festivals in recent years in France and abroad – his approach to the saxophone is involved in research on technical areas of the instrument, whether acoustic or related to amplification – composes electronic music : works with film, dance, visual arts and radio – focuses on learning processes related to sound and music – music and non music – sound as support for meditation – breath – the very relationships that sound and music have with image and body – still learning to play shakuhashi after recent trip to Japan.

Charles Hayward (born 1951) is an English drummer and was a founding member of the experimental rock group This Heat. He also played with Mal Dean’s Amazing Band, Radar Favourites, Dolphin Logic, and gigged and recorded with old schoolfriend and « Pooh and the Ostrich Feather » member Phil Manzanera in the group Quiet Sun project as well as a short stint with Gong. On one occasion he also played drums for the anarchist punk band Crass.

After 25 years of extensive solo works and collaborations, Sudden Infant will be permanently operating as a three-piece band. The band consists of Christian Weber on bass, Alexandre Babel manning the drums and Joke Lanz on electronics and vocals. The decision behind this transformation was reached at the conclusion of the recordings for the trio’s first album, Wölfli’s Nightmare, which was released in May 2014 on Voodoo Rhythm Records and is produced by Roli Mosimann (ex Swans).
In his Sudden Infant guise, Lanz creates a unique blend of physical sound poetry and epileptic noise bursts, using contact microphones, loops, tapes etc.
The result is an extreme form of musique concrète that juxtaposes spasmodic gibbering with a battery of disorienting electronics.

This band is featuring;
MARS WILLIAMS – tenor, alto, soprano, sopranino saxophones
(Chicago) one of the true saxophone players–someone who takes pleasure in the sheer act of blowing the horn.
WACLAW ZIMPEL – bass & alto clarinet, Bb clarinet, tarogato(Warsaw) Zimpel’s name goes straight into the list of European jazzmen that gave new life to clarinet and bass clarinet, continuing Dolphy’s work.
HILLIARD GREENE – double bass (NYC)
His fabulous arco bass mixes lyricism with a burning, literally ferocious desire of opening the listener’s mind.
KLAUS KUGEL – drums (Cologne)
Klaus Kugel is a commanding force behind the drum set. He creates layers of tension drawn out from intuitive listening.

Band leader Ted Milton’s freakishly honking saxophone whirls spectacularly; calling to mind the shrinking tones conjured by John Zorn on some of his most challenging work. Allied to a sliding bass figure that seems to have the consistency of gooey rubber and a relentlessly funky drum pattern is Milton’s low in the mix poetry. Growled in a distinctly menacing manner that’s somewhere between unhinged royal correspondent and a sociopathic surgeon Once More glories in a chaotic, disturbing atmosphere

Clara Clara is a noise pop quartet from Lyon, France. Composed by brothers François Virot, Charles Virot and Amélie Lambert with Dean Spacer who has recently joined the live line up. They release their new album ‘Bugarach’ on the French label Clapping Music this April, following up to their wonderfully received album Comfortable Problems.

Through a strong and unusual connexion between machines and drums, HELVED RÜM has developed a wide range of ways to build soniclandscapes. From concrete to abstract, from thin to massive, the duo combines elements of chaotic freejazz with drones aecstatic ambient parts, blending noisy organic textures with spectral music. HELVED RÜM reaches extremes of tension and roughness by using and abusing electronics and primitive percussions.

Sean Tyrrell is an Irish singer and musician based in the tradition and music rich County Clare on Ireland’s west coast. Touring and gigging since the late sixties, Sean has played with many Irish greats including Davy Spillane and the Kilfenora Céilí band. Called “one of the country’s major folk voices” by Irish Music Magazine, Sean’s a multi-instrumentalist and singer, perhaps best known for setting Irish poets to music. His adaptation of The Midnight Court, a 1200 line 18th century satiric poem, has been staged at various theaters and arts festivals around Europe, including the Galway Arts Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Thank you for reading.

I hope to hear from you if you want to set up a concert for one of these bands/artists.

All the best.
