"A collection of videos that have grown out of deep research into the nature of Free Improvisation, its history in the UK and its international connections." #BMC50
"These days I see composing as a slowed-down version of improvisation, which is why I think I'm drawn to making music as opposed to just playing it."
"I’m very interested in the material and acoustic properties of both architectural spaces and musical instruments..."
"I see improvisation as instant (usually collaborative) composition....an important form of musical communication..."
"I had so much fun and felt so at home in this music... I knew immediately this was a music scene I wanted to be a part of."
"Improvisation to me is a journey each time, that is followed by a memory"
