Improvisation Gig at Risk in Birmingham!

Excited to perform with such a great line-up of musicians.

“In a weekend-long celebration of the unknown, we have invited an outstanding line up of thrilling, innovative musicians to Town Hall as a first step in a journey to explore risk.
We’ll have a rare all-night event, performances in the round and evenings where we expect some of the most unexpected music to be made.
Bring your ears along to this exploration of risk, improvisation, spontaneity and music created in the moment.”

Crack Up and Free Improvisation Gigs in Birmingham!

Crack Up at 4 Square Weekender

Crack Up, the piece inspired by the sound of suppressed laughter,  was performed again last Sunday by Birmingham Contemporary Music Group at 4 Squares Weekenders in Birmingham.

I also had my Birmingham début for performing free improvised pieces with wonderful Melinda Maxwell on oboe.
