Ken Ikeda/ Phil Durrant/ NO Moore/ Eddie Prévost
Ken Ikeda is a composer and performer, born in Tokyo. He creates unique electric improvisation by a delicate combination of sign wave. After studying at Berklee College of Music, he has exhibited sound art and visual installations around the world.
Born near London in 1957, Phil Durrant is an improviser/composer/sound artist who has devised his own virtual performance instruments using Reaktor.
NO Moore’s guitar playing combines elements syphoned off from the short history of the electric guitar, from the Blues to Free Improvisation, and combines them with a love of early electronic experimentalism, synthesis, and musique concrète. The result is an often surprising sound world for electric guitar, encompassing both a loose respect for its traditions and a commitment to what follows. With Eddie Prévost and John Edwards, he can be heard on the recent Matchless Recordings release ‘Darkened, yet shone’.
Eddie Prévost plays with immense fire, grace and invention. Founder of the essential AMM, collaborator of the greatest improvisers internationally, since the 60’s he has kept a continuous contact with the scene and always manages to invent anew his contribution to “meta-music”.
