Cath Roberts and Dee Byrne

I have worked together with Cath since 2013 in various contexts: organising live performances, tours and festivals under the banner of LUME, co-running our record label Luminous and playing together in numerous projects – including UK/Swiss sextet MoonMot.

In early 2019 we played a few improvised duo gigs around London and it felt really nice to strip everything away to the sparseness of an alto and baritone saxophone. In April 2019 we decided to record the duo. The spontaneous, relatively short improvisations captured the spirit of the duo, with wildly ranging textures from minimalist sounds to full-on wailing! 

Our duo album was released on Luminous in September 2020. Have a listen:
