Tickets £15 – 25 plus booking fee

This special concert date at Milton Court Concert Hall as part of the Barbican’s music programme sees seven unique musical voices in seven specially-created new works. Classical, Jazz and experimental improvisation fuse in a showcase of cutting-edge music from some of today’s most exciting composer-performers on the UK’s music scene. All multi-instrumentalists in their own rights, each takes a turn to lead with a musical concept of their own, while the remainder of the group react to illuminate these ideas with their own semi-improvised accompaniment.

This evening’s line-up includes Jas Kayser, a drummer for major pop artists; multidisciplinary percussionist and artist Angela Wai Nok Hui; ‘boundary-blurring composer and improviser’ (Guardian) Fred Thomas; BBC Jazz Award winner Kit Downes; Héloïse Werner – co-director of 2021 RPS Young Artist Award winners The Hermes Experiment; cellist, vocalist and composer Laura Moody, and composer, cellist and record label founder Colin Alexander.
