Fugitive Counterpoint #3
by Tisha Mukarji.
Second set: Group improv.
Tisha Mukarji is a pianist, composer, and artist. She holds an M.F.A from the Malmö Art Academy in Fine Arts and has performed and recorded her work extensively in Europe. She is the author of Auscultation (Berlin:Argobooks, 2010), and has CD releases on Creative Sourves Records (D is for Din, 2006) and Another Timbre (Endspace, 2008).
Angharad Davies is a Welsh violinist, based in London, working with free-improvisation, compositions and performance.
Her approach to sound involves attentive listening and exploring beyond the sonic confines of her instrument, her classical training and performance expectation.
Much of her work involves collaboration. She has long standing duos with Tisha Mukarji, Dominic Lash and Lina Lapelyte and plays with Apartment House, Cranc, Common Objects, Richard Dawson's band and Skogen. She has been involved in projects with Tarek Atui, Tony Conrad, Laura Cannell, Jack McNamara, Rie Nakajima, Eliane Radigue, Juliet Stephenson and J.G.Thirlwell.
She has released records on Absinth Records, Another Timbre, Potlatch and Confrontrecords.
Her album Ffansion | Fancies was voted in the top 12 albums for Radio 3's Late Junction.
Áine O’Dwyer's role lies somewhere between the roles of vocalist, musician, improviser, composer, performer, listener, sonic stalker and audience member. In recent years, the pipe organ has become an integral site for her experimentation, culminating in her albums 'Locusts' and 'Gegenschein'.
Her recent album 'Gallarais' experiments with acoustic decay, and was developed during a self-made residency at the Brunel tunnel shaft, London. Her work celebrates her interests in found and forgotten spaces, chance choreographies, acoustic phenomena, the act of listening and the search for alternative scoring through a combined performativity of instruments, drawings, space, time, memory and the body.
Past solo releases include 'Anything Bright or Startling? and 'Music for Church Cleaners'.
Bassist Dominic Lash is based in Bristol and has performed with musicians such as Tony Conrad (in duo and quartet formations), Joe Morris (trio and quartet), Evan Parker (duo, quartet and large ensemble) and the late Steve Reid. His main projects include The Dominic Lash Quartet, The Set Ensemble (an experimental music group focused on the work of the Wandelweiser collective) and The Convergence Quartet.
