John Butcher / Thomas Lehn / Matthew Shipp · Faye MacCalman

Monday, September 18, 2017
DOORS: 8:00pm
La Sala Rossa


Suoni Per Il Popolo et CKUT 90.3FM présentent:

John Butcher / Thomas Lehn / Matthew Shipp 
John Butcher [UK] • soprano- & tenor saxophone, feedback
Thomas Lehn [AT/DE] • analogue synthesizer
Matthew Shipp [USA] • piano

The combination of personalities is winningly combustible. The rhythmic push and pull between Butcher, Shipp and Lehn is a delight, with all three conjuring up graciously dissonant figures whose frequent crisscrossing gives the music a kaleidoscopic character. All of the players are drumming with razor sharp focus, but they also have more serene impulses and create glistening soundscapes in which the analogue keyboard is well complemented by the two acoustic instruments that are inspired to match the strange and beautiful noise that fills the air. Music with an on-the-edge intensity that is nonetheless handled with considerable rigour and attention to detail.
