some things – 8 November 2018

By Anton  //  Performances  //  No Comments
some things are the ‘arresting trumpet duo’ of Chris Dowding and Ben Higham, from Norwich. They use original and other material as a basis for improvisation. This results in interlocking solos, tight unison patterns and free improvisations.
 
They have performed at The Vortex Jazz Club, ClerkenwellARTSlab (several times), and various venues around Norfolk. In December 2016, they were part of the Triple Bill Tour, an Arts Council-funded short UK tour of three new bands from Norwich.
 
Individually, they have performed with Annie Whitehead, John Stevens and together as part of The Blue Rinse Brigade, a four-piece horn section developed for the London-based brother-sister duo Diego Brown and the Good Fairy. In 2018, they have started a regular residency of solos, duos and trios at The Vortex – ‘une, deux, trois…’.
 
 
They’ll be doing an improvised set for us and, as ever, you can get involved before and after their set by putting your name in our bright yellow 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.
