The Kandinsky Effect are a French/American trio based in Paris. Searching for new ways to improvise, they blend jazz, rock, electronica, hip-hop and sonic experimentation to create a unique sound. Improvisation is ever-present and spontaneity is paramount.

+ support from DOLLYman: Kerry Andrew (voice, keys, various) / Matt Dibble (clarinets, sax, voice, keys) / James Lindsay (cello, voice, keys) / Lucy Mulgan (bass) / Pat Moore (drums, voice)


TUE 26 • 20.30 • £9 • MD


Shatner’s Bassoon are a group of six Leeds-based composers/improvisers. Influenced by artists such as Tim Berne, Mr. Bungle, John Zorn, Tyshawn Sorey and a range of rock and electronic music, Shatner’s Bassoon have developed a unique collective sound based on developing complex compositional structures through improvisation, allowing the music to be naturally infused by their experiences.

+ support from Angler, a stripped down, purely live duo consisting of Cameron Reynolds on
piano/synths, and Tom Greenhalgh on drums.
