Martin Archer & Steve Chase – 14 September 2011

By Rodrigo  //  Performances  //  No Comments

Martin Archer – iPad, woodwind
Steve Chase – guitar, miscellaneous instruments

Martin and Steve have played together regularly over the last few years in the context of larger groups (Coastguard All Stars, Gated Community, Juxtavoices, Showroom Ensemble), but this will be their first concert as a duo.  To mark the occasion they have chosen to present a series of miniature compositions all of which use a large degree of improvisation.  Steve’s skill is to draw surprisingly evocative sounds from humble low fi material and objects, often in the context of very surprising compositional ideas.  Martin will be taking the opportunity to perform using newly developed material for iPad for the first time.
