Newsbits: Artifacts Trio / Kuhn, Sewelson, Roland, and Cleaver / Pierre Henry Performance / Andrew Liles Book

The Artifacts Trio (Tomeka Reid – cello; Nicole Mitchell – flutes; Mike Reed – drums) will perform in St. Louis on December 3rd.

Jazz Right Now reviews the new release from Kuhn, Sewelson, Roland, and Cleaver.

On 13th May, 2017 Bluecoat presents at Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral Messe de Liverpool, by Pierre Henry. The French musique concrète composer was commissioned to create this electronic mass for the opening of the Brutalist building in 1967 but did not complete it in time. Fifty years later it will be performed as a live mix by Henry’s sound design partner and engineer Thierry Balasse, a unique performance using 40 speakers designed especially for the circular space.

British musician and engineer of sound, Andrew Liles is the author of works including collaborations with Nurse With Wound or Current 93. His second book, accompanied by a recording, is out.
