Francesca ter-Burg, Jessica Lauren & Raimund Wong | Chase Coley
Cellist, composer, producer & songwriter Francesca Ter-Berg was invited by Free Range to form a new trio and tonight’s show is the result: a brand new group of highly distinctive musicians performing together for the first time.
Francesca is known for her unique musical style blending Klezmer, improvisation and electronic synthesis. Jessica Lauren is a hugely experienced keyboard player and organist playing in the UK jazz and alternative scenes since the early 1990’s with a rare and refreshing minimalist sense of space in her improvising. Raimund Wong uses 4-track recorders with cassette-loops as rudimentary samplers, manipulating ‘found sounds’ through the language of dub and musique concrète. Raimund is also a visual artist, recognised for his graphic work for artists/promoters/labels such as Alabaster DePlume, Church of Sound and International Anthem.
‘Ter-Bergs vocals have a cool charm [whilst her] cello passionately laments’
