We're in Leeds on the 13th March hosting a special club night as part of the International Festival for Artistic Innovation
The cross-disciplinary festival welcomes leading performers, composers and researchers from around the world for a week long event celebrating innovation. Highlights will include thought provoking and inspiring talks, workshops and live performances exploring the disparate and diverse fields of jazz, classical, and popular music.
Fresh off the back of their single launch in Feb, we're taking Juice Vocal Ensemble. Juice will be performing their brand new single Heal You (music by Anna Meredith) and songs from their forthcoming album, Laid Bare. The new album features specially created love songs by Gavin Bryars, Mica Levi aka Micachu, folk artist Jim Moray, and many more.
Alongside Juice, the audience can expect radical solo works for bass clarinet and electronics -- Jason Alder’s A’d Amssong that draws from Detroit’s legendary underground electronic dance music scene and Robert Ratcliffe’s Wake Up Call - a dialogue between jazz improvisation and contemporary electronic music. Other solo works will include Enrico Bertelli’s Drumactica 2.0 for augmented snare drum and Luis Bittencourt’s Memórias Líquidas for waterphone and live loops.
Alongside the live music, resident London DJs Gabriel Prokofiev and Nwando welcome guest DJ Damien Harron (percussionist, composer, and educator from Leeds College of Music), and as usual they'll be spinning the most stimulating new sounds in experimental and contemporary classical music.
