Delighted to present 'Eddie Prévost at 80 — marking a journey to a bright nowhere', a series of concerts marking the 80th birthday of one of the UK's foremost improvising musicians.

Whether through his pioneering work with AMM, his long-running London Workshop group, his work with his own Matchless Recordings imprint, or his many collaborations - live and recorded - with the likes of Evan Parker, John Butcher, Joe McPhee, John Tilbury, Derek Bailey, and Jim O'Rourke to name just a few, Prévost has had an incalculable impact on the fields of improvised and new music in this country and beyond. These four concerts seek to bring together some of the many facets that make up the body of Eddie's work.

Eddie would like to dedicate this series to Victor Schonfield, the hugely influential promoter who helped change the landscape of experimental music in the UK in the 1960s and 70s, and who died in May this year.

Eddie Prévost

The investigative dynamic of AMM leads a musician to seek out new material. It is the fabric and constitution of stuff that is considered as more important than any historical or cultural heritage. It is Prévost's constant exploration's that has produced the range of sounds associated with his work, particularly within AMM and its extension to the many workshop ensembles. This philosophy leads to what Seymour Wright has so aptly described as the "awkward wealth" of investigation.(citation) It is a position of constant examination and artistic redress.
