hello, hello,
Phil Minton just told me he was up for joining Guilluame Viltard and John Russell on the 12th of March. I think the formation is interesting and it should sound great in the church (that's why we wanted to have these three together).
The line-up is now quite plump so we may have to start soon after the door open to make sure there's plenty of room for everyone.

I just love it when after struggling with an idea - kneading it and shaping it to make it fit into place - it suddenly organise itself and fills the volume given. In this instance a lot of shifting was necessary before it started to flow but I'm quite excited about the whole thing now: different practices, visiting musicians, new venues, new groupings...

There's two movements:
Jean-Luc Guionnet will show some drawings (how and what is still in the air) and Paul Abbott will show his latest film (here again things are still moving) during the as alike as trees festival in a separate room so that people can come in wether or not attending the festival.

Also there'll be a concert in the lovely St Mark's church in Islington on Saturday the 12th of March with Jean-Luc on either sax or church organ and Soizic Lebrat, french cellist along with a fine selection of local music practitioners.

What do you think?
