News and reviews

Getting there! 

We seems to have been recording forever, but that's because we're making two albums at once. Productive! Finally putting the flute and clarinet on both.
This week we were recording some new material Dan's written. Photos from the session show how hard we're working!

New recording project 

We're recording again! It's a slow process but it's sounding great. A full twenty minute piece doesn't get recorded in a second.
But it's nearing completion and we had a great time recording percussion this week. 
Here's some photos so far!
Al at the controls in Resident, recording a new Dan piece.

QEH Bryars premiere 

The QEH performance was fantastic. Not just to play in that great venue and acoustic, but it was an absolute honour to give the premiere of "Burroughs". Composed by Gavin Bryars, for us. Gavin we love you. Amazing and beautiful piece and a huge learning curve. We loved every minute of rehearsing, proof reading, creating, building, interpreting and finally performing. We can't wait to play it again! 

We were too engrossed in performing to stop to blog and post photos! Here's the view at the soundcheck

Line-up for QEH 

First rehearsal of the new Gavin Bryars piece yesterday, and it is beautiful! Our line-up for the performance on October 11th at QEH will be:
Abi Murray- Flute; Richard Bond-clarinet and guitar, Alessandro Le Barbera-mandolin and guitar, Alastair Beveridge, Robbie Mullally, Charlotte Barrow, Niels Bakx-Guitars, Elias Gargallo-Percussion, Jo Kelsey- Keys, Richard Jones-Violin, Audrey Riley and Edwin Ireland-cello, Dan Gaylard, Jeremy Muchenje and Pete Hunt-basses. We'll also be joined by Bryars Ensemble guitarist James Woodrow as guest soloist.

Gavin Bryars commission  

We have big news. The English composer Gavin Bryars has been commissioned to write us a piece. An honour for us as we hold this composer in high esteem. We're pretty excited. The piece was commissioned a while ago so we've been holding on to this great secret. But apparently it's almost finished. We should see it by the end of the week! The premiere will be at Queen Elizabeth Hall on October 11th, as part of a Burroughs inspired evening within the literature festival. More news to come!
