Tristan Honsinger started improvising in Montreal more than forty years ago, prior to his decisive move to Europe, where he’s been at the centre of improvised music activity ever since. So this group represents an oblique sort of homecoming. Their rapport is obvious, the results a satisfying mixture of musical empathy and creative conflict. Tristan plays with characteristic daring from his reserves of readymade tune fragments and shards of poetry and into the protean unknown that is the foundation for the best group improvising. Josh Zubot,and Nicolas Caloia don’t merely follow him there, but provoke him and each other in ways that are, by turns, subtle, assertive, and irreverent. A superb encounter. LISTEN
Bravest Boat are a collective based in Glasgow and Bradford exploring structured improvisations, loose composition and prepared spontaneity. Some written bits, some not. Emerging from a series of concerts of varying line ups led by the idiosyncratic twin guitars of Stevie Jones and Jer Reid, the personnel eventually settled down to form this group, also including Aby Vulliamy (viola, voice), George Murray (trombone) and Rafe Fitzpatrick (violin). Bravest Boat, all voracious collaborators, have a background of working together within Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra, Sound of Yell, The One Ensemble and Sycamore with Friends, as well as within countless other contexts; with film makers, dancers, artists, theatre makers, community projects, and music therapy. Stewart Smith described this extended scene in The Quietus as more of a rhizome than a family tree. LISTEN
Richard Youngs; Since the release of a solo album, Advent, and a collaboration with Simon Wickham-Smith, Lake, in 1990, Richard Youngs has appeared on well over 100 releases on labels as small as his own and as big as Jagjaguwar. His collaborators include Jandek, Acid Mothers Temple’s Kawabata Makoto, Vibrecathedral Orchestra/Astral Social Club member Neil Campbell, and Skullflower’s Matthew Bower. He runs No Fans, his second label, from his kitchen table, and he masters records by his friends. LISTEN
