special series of sonic episodes brings together US mixed-media
composer/saxophonist Matana Roberts and UK improviser and flautist Kelly Jayne
Jones. These are two artists from disparate backgrounds, finding affinity in
practices charged by fiercely personal philosophies on sound and its potential
within a patchwork of genre, texture and meaning. Matana is an internationally
renowned composer, band leader, saxophonist, sound experimentalist and
mixed-media practitioner. Whilst Kelly Jayne Jones makes use of varying
combinations of prepared recordings, text, rocks, found sounds and flute.
Matana and Kelly will weave their own approaches into live collaborative works informed by deeply expressive playing, tactile electro-acoustic interplay and a broader shared politics of resistance/defiance.
performance is commissioned by OUTLANDS; The new national experimental music touring network and is supported by Arts Council England and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
