Black Chama + Ilan Volkov / Lia Mazzari / Crystabel Riley (trio)

No Longer Available

Conductor Ilan Volkov curates an exhiliratingly exploratory line-up, featuring sound artist and sound designer Daniel Meir's Black Chama project, as well as a new trio of Crystabel Riley, Lia Mazzari and Volkov himself.

Ilan Volkov

Ilan Volkov, began his career as Assistant Conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Seiji Ozawa, and was Chief Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra from 2003-2009. Since then he has been the orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor. 

He is a frequent guest conductor with orchestras around the world, including BBC Scottish, and his recordings have won critical acclaim as well as prestigious awards. Volkov is very active in the new music scene and has premiered many contemporary orchestral works, including compositions by Jonathan Harvey, Hans Abrahamsen, Unsuk Chin, Mark-Anthony Turnage and others. Ilan Volkov also works regularly with leading ensembles in modern music such as Ensemble Modern and Musik Fabrik. Volkov has curated various new music events in Israel over the last six years including Hafarot Seder and Hapzura. He has also collaborated with Iancu Dumitrescu, AMM, John Butcher, John Oswald, Zeena Parkins and John Zorn to mention a few. Volkov is a member of the improvisation trio Mines, an ensemble consisting of two violins and drums. 

Lia Mazzari

Lia Mazzari’s work is often collaborative engaging new audiences through encounters with art in non-conventional spaces. She creates live and recorded events that embrace the broader sense of sound in space. This fluid relationship with her immediate environment, towards a sonic activism through the means of performance, intervention, installation and developing her own technique with cello, sometimes whips , and live-sound-transmission technologies form the crux of her practice. She is the founder of Silver Road, an experimental performance space housed in a derelict water tank in South-East London, later devoted to time-based art practices in the urbanscape.  She performed amongst others with Tarek Atoui, Ashley Paul, Takahiro Kawaguchi, Ilan Volkov, Christof Migone, Angharad Davies, Sholto Dobie and Tom White.

Crystabel Riley

During the late naughties Crystabel Riley toured Japan and Europe using drums, electronics and make-up in noise trio Maria and the Mirrors.

This was the start of her interest in patterns on skins - human and drum.

This interest in dimensional patterns existing on (and off) different surfaces has continued to evolve through exploring the idea of 'care and uncare' of the skin, self, others, and the world, across all of Crystabel's practices as an Artist (Make-up, Drum).

Crystabel has been a long term collaborator with Sue Lynch who welcomed her into the Horse Improvised Music Club, where she collaborated with Caroline Krabel, John Edwards, and Steve Beresford who welcomed her into the London Improvisers Orchestra.
She is currently working on the multi-format duo project @xcrswx with Seymour Wright.
