I helped celebrate The Wire magazine’s 40th year of publishing this summer by taking part in the mini-festival held at The Cube, Bristol. The event’s final evening was devoted to the story and legacy of The Scratch Orchestra.
“Musical innovation & revolutionary politics collide” tweets @thewiremagazine, hinting at the opportunities and contradictions of Cornelius Cardew’s experiment in democratic mass music-making.
I performed alongside original member Stefan Szczelkun, guitarist Matthew Grigg and flautist Tina Hitchens.
My track on The Wire 40 Playlist
I was also invited to donate a track to the online playlist of Wire 40 contributing artists.
Have a listen to my duo with pianist Manuela Keller, recorded at a live performance at Kunst und Philosophie in Zürich, Nov 2019.
