Seymour Wright – saxophonist, investigator, artist – lives in London. His practice is about the saxophone – music, history and technique – actual and potential; an on-going, rigorous and exhaustive exploration of the instrument. The energy of this learning is applied to various collaborations and contexts to access/share what he has called the ‘awkward wealth of investigation’. His work is documented on three widely acclaimed self-released collections Seymour Wright of Derby (2008), Seymour Writes Back (2015) and Is This Right? (2017).
As well as XT, his current collaborations include lll人 (with Daichi Yoshikawa and Paul Abbott), abaria (with Ute Kanngiesser), [Ahmed] (with Antonin Gerbal, Joel Grip and Pat Thomas), GUO (with Daniel Blumberg), S.T.E.P.S. (with Evie Ward), an on-going ‘quartet’ collaboration with Paul Abbott, Cara Tolmie and Will Holder, and, a trans-atlantic collaboration with Anne Guthrie.
