Cevanne/Crewdson

 

Cevanne is an Anglo-Armenian composer and performer from Suffolk. Her work is grounded in the British isles – digging deep into their rich soil, to find artefacts which one would not always imagine to be native. From this stance, she has written for choir, chamber ensemble, dance, sculpture, symphony orchestra, oratorio, radio drama, soloists, theatre, comedy, and more. Cevanne’s work often explores improvisation, humour, dance, and line (both narrative, and melodic). She is Composer-in-Residence at Handel House, and is inspired to adopt Handel’s open attitude to societies, and styles, of all kinds.

 

Hailing from the chilly North of England, Hugh ‘Crewdson’ Jones left school at the age of 16 so that he could go on a tour with his punk band supporting The Buzzcocks [The band also supported The Dead Kennedys, The Alarm and Bad Manners!]. He has played at the Southbank Centre’s lauded Ether Festival, has leaked a track – ‘Mime’ – online which was picked up for editorial on the US’s influential Fader website and has played gigs in London supporting the likes of The Invisible. He has also already worked up remixes for La Shark & Esben and the Witch, as well as unofficial remixes of the Invisible and Fourtet. Live as in the studio, Crewdson creates sound from machinery, found items, manipulated vocals and saxophone which he samples and manipulates through his idiosyncratic electronic set up, controlling his sounds with a Playstation joystick and sometimes midi motorcycle handlebars. Starting with the limited edition Dust EP, you can expect an upbeat, playful and dark concoction of electronic music, taking in influences from techno, jazz, 2-step, dubstep, your doorstep… whilst answering that question of what might happen if you threw Polar Bear, Flying Lotus, Aphex Twin and maybe even The Streets in a room together!

Elliot Galvin Trio

 

The Elliot Galvin Trio consists of Elliot on Piano, Tom McCredie on Bass and Simon Roth on drums. Playing all original material by Elliot, drawing on a broad set of influences from African Township to 20th Century classical music, and retaining a strong emphasis on improvisation to create a playful and highly original sound. The Trio came together in late 2012 and has already played across the UK in a number of prestigious venues, including their premier gig at the Vortex Club. They are also currently preparing to release their highly anticipated debut album ‘Dreamland’ early next year on the Chaos Collective label.

 

Elliot Galvin, Tom McCredie and Simon Roth are all rising stars on the British improvised music scene, and this ensemble sees them reach new heights.
