An evening of improvised music exploring and reacting to the resonant but awkward and challenging acoustic of the large hall of the old Peak Frean biscuit factory in Bermondsey.
John Butcher is one of the world's foremost saxophonists and has played in resonant spaces from Japan's Utsonomiya underground mine to the huge Lyness oil tank in the Orkneys. He will play solo as will Seymour Wright, a fellow saxophonist whose contrary approach to his instrument is perfectly suited to the difficult acoustic of the biscuit factory.
Jennifer Allum (violin), Sarah Hughes (zither) and Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga (zither) will bring a very different approach to the space. Playing as a trio for the first time, they will look for unexpected ways in which the strings of their instruments can engage with each other, while leaving a distinctive mark on the cavernous environment.
Another Timbre is a new label for improvised and contemporary music.
