LUME PRESENTS COREY MWAMBA & DEEMER
Deemer is an installation/performance based electro-acoustic ‘twomanned’ orchestra, whose aural narratives are created within fluid frameworks that map a trajectory in time, but leave the sonic textures and compositions entirely free. Corey Mwamba creates music using vibraphone, dulcimer, and electronics. His music contains elements of jazz, folk and electronica.

THURS 11 SEPTEMBER • 20.00 • £10 • MD
TONY BEVAN / TREVOR WATTS / JOHN EDWARDS / TERRY DAY
The result of what was meant to be a one-off performance in commemoration of the late Lol Coxhill, the music produced by this formidable group of improvisers proved so good it seemed natural to continue. Consisting of two legends of improvised music in Trevor Watts (saxes) and Terry Day (drums), and two younger veterans with their own international reputations with John Edwards (double bass) and Tony Bevan (saxes), it’s hard to describe the quartet as anything but a supergroup.
