My improvising electronics duo Deemer are trying out a new format by inviting a guest (Ed Riches on guitar) to join us tonight for inventive trio Taupe‘s album launch at The Vortex. In our rehearsal yesterday we tried out a series of permutations, each lasting 5 minutes, exploring the different roles each of us could take on. This resulted in short pieces that were contrasting and focused. It will be great to try this out in front of an unsuspecting audience tonight!

I’m looking forward to playing with Word Of Moth for LUME Lab #1 at IKLECTIK on Wednesday 8th February. We’ve even gone and written a dedicated blog! You can buy tickets on the Luminous Bandcamp page. The moths will also be busy recording our debut album this month as well as venturing out to Switzerland for the Jazzwerkstatt collective’s tenth anniversary festival. #EXCITEMENT!
