Simon Allen – glass harp
Jan Hendrickse – flutes
Sandro Mussida – ‘cello
Angharad Davies – violin
Pressure Observations is a music series that continues a long collaboration between Jan Hendrickse & Simon Allen. The music is for the most part freely improvised with the occasional admission of compositional elements. Here, the sound incorporates a search for grit in the sweetness of glass and techniques that make flutes sound without breath.
For this performance they are joined by Sandro Mussida and Angharad Davies, forming a quartet of seasoned free improvisers, all equally at home with compositional thinking. Meeting this evening for the first time, string players Mussida and Davies each have unique approaches to the exploration of sound and space; Mussida’s eclectic experiments in performance and Davies prepared violin are both familiar visitors to the Hundred Years Gallery.
Expect music that is as equally measured as unconfined.
