This month’s special guest act is a brand new quartet, bringing together familar Noise Upstairs faces with those from slightly further afield.

Bruce Coates & Mark Hanslip – saxophones
Anton Hunter & Ian Simpson – guitars

Bruce is a saxophonist who has performed and recorded with some of the world’s top improvisers including Paul Dunmall, John Edwards, Lol Coxhill, Mark Sanders. He is the co-founder of the Birmingham Improviser’s Orchestra (BIO) and the founder of FrImp, a regular meeting of improvising musicians.

Tenor saxophonist Mark Hanslip emerged as a key player on the London jazz scene in the mid-2000s, rehearsing, touring and recording with groups such as Outhouse, Nostalgia 77, Jonathan Bratoeff Quartet and TOM-MIX (featuring the late drummer Tony Marsh) and working with major figures including Steve Lacy, Kenny Wheeler and Bob Brookmeyer (as a regular member of Hans Koller’s large ensembles). Now based in eManchester, he currently plays with Brit-jazz group Twelves, drummer/composer Tony Bianco’s groups, and as part of the north’s rich improvised music scene with players such as Andrew Cheetham, Phil Morton, John Jasnoch and Stephen Grew.

Ian is a regular at The Noise Upstairs, and has performed on guitar with Some Some Unicorn, Wire Assembly and Concrete Bunker. Equally at home in the world of electronics, he has been sighted with groups such as Kipple, Fonik and Yeah Yeah Industrial.

Anton runs The Noise Upstairs (and therefore has booked himself as the guest act), and can often be found with groups as diverse as Beck Hunters, Sloth Racket, Ripsaw Catfish and Beats & Pieces Big Band.

Before and after their set will be plenty of opportunities for you to join in. Just bring along your favourite noise-making device and stick your name in our hat.

About The Noise Upstairs

The Noise Upstairs is an improv collective which runs a free-improv night in Manchester. The basic premise is that anyone can turn up and join in by putting their name in the hat. Names are pulled out, ensembles formed, and hearts broken.
