Saturday 27 August 2016, 6pm, OTO Project Space
Early evening performance in the Project Space from the improvising trio of Seymour Wright (saxophone), Ute Kanngiesser (cello) and Daichi Yoshikawa (electronics).
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.
Ute Kanngiesser is a German, London based cellist:
“For over 10 years, I have only played unscripted/improvised music. I have experimented with the sound of the cello, limiting myself to the alive material at hand: vast and complicated layers within the instrument and myself; and to let this music evolve continuously in relationship with others. It relates to the process of uncovering an endless multiplicity of coexisting sense perspectives. And it deals with the energy that this gives rise to. For me, it is the most exciting place to play music from.”
Most recent collaborations have been with Seymour Wright, Dimitra Lazaridou Chatzigoga, Rie Nakajima, Jennifer Allum, John Butcher, Terry Day, Billy Steiger, Tom Wheatley, Paul Abbott, Guillaume Viltard, and Daniel Blumberg.
