Seymour Wright

No Longer Available

A special members only stream of a solo performance by Seymour Wright - a key artist in OTO's local music community. Utilizing OTO's currently empty space as his canvas, Seymour will bring his radical and forever creative saxophone playing to the fore. Expect 3 or 4 saxophones, feedback, windows and various parts of the room both uncovered and brought to life for a short period of time.

Seymour Wright

Seymour Wright’s work is about the creative, situated friction of learning, ideas, people and the saxophone – music, history and technique ­– actual and potential.

His solo work is documented on three widely-acclaimed collections - Seymour Wright of Derby (2008), Seymour Writes Back (2015) and Is This Right? (2017).

Current projects include: abaria with Ute Kanngiesser; [Ahmed] with Antonin Gerbal, Joel Grip and Pat Thomas; @xcrswx with Crystabel Riley; GUO with Daniel Blumberg; The Experimental Library with Evie Ward; XT with Paul Abbott; a trans-atlantic duet with Anne Guthrie, and, with Jean-luc Guionnet a project addressing an imaginary lacunae in Aby Warburg's Atlas Mnemosyne.

His writing has been published in C//A, Sound American and The Wire.
