A double bill of improvised music at Long White Cloud this week, exploring the interaction between acoustic instruments and electronics/synths. Doors 8pm, music starting 8.30pm/8.45pm. Entry is one Bank of England note.
Kordik Lucas is an improvising duo combining trombone and analogue synthesisers. They have been active on the London scene and beyond for a few years, both as a duo and in other contexts: you might have caught Ed Lucas’ duo set with guitarist Daniel Thompson at LUME last year. The duo also run Earshots Recordings, a label releasing improvised music, most recently including a bass duo album from John Edwards and Tom Wheatley. Kordik Lucas released their own album ‘MMXII’ on Earshots in 2012.
‘The juicy sounds of the Vostok synth wiggle with squelchy non-classical balls of trombone fluff’ – Next Festival, Bratislava, 2012.

Dee Byrne/Ed Riches
Dee Byrne and Ed Riches first met playing in keyboardist/vocalist Xantone Blacq’s band in 2008. Since then they have collaborated as part of improvising sextet Zonica (as seen at ‘LUME Presents…’ last month), but tonight is their first performance as a duo. Following on from their work with Zonica, they will play an improvised set using guitar, alto sax and electronics. Expect sonic cookery of the first order…
