CLASSIC ESCALATION OF COMMITMENT – LAUNCH/PREMIERE/DEBUT
Migro Records presents an electrifying evening of free and controlled improvisation.
Alex Bonney, Panos Ghikas and Nick Roth will present PALNIK, a limited cassette release featuring duos of freely improvised saxophone, trumpet, violin, analogue electronics and digital stuff. Expect explosive dynamics, undynamic explosions and some calmer moments, drawing from live performances, studio recordings and lockdown projects. https://migrorecords.bandcamp.com/album/palnik
Rocío Bolaños will perform the London premiere of ‘Classic Escalation of Commitment’ by Panos Ghikas, a real-time composition for bass clarinet and fixed audio. A derivative of the Unrealtime project, the work utilises techniques of real-time audio collage in the form of a video-score for controlled improvisation. Expect things to escalate as Rocío deftly mounts an assault on the audio counterpart. https://youtu.be/L3Qe6lTZRtg
HI are an Anglo/French-German free improvisation duo comprised of Claire Hope and Berit Immig. Berit and Claire have played together for almost 20 years as members of unpopular pop band The Chap and have always made funny noises backstage, during soundchecks and in the band van. Their debut as HI will see them using a menagerie of small sound sources, voices and a Chinese zither.
