Performing along with Duncan Chapman on 12th July 2018.
Mike McInerney plays shakuhachi and piano. Has studied mathematics and music at the University of York and has a Ph. D from Dartington College of Arts. He works with interactive technology, computer-generated sounds and live processing to create new music for Japanese shakuhachi flute, and other instruments. Mike has studied with the composer Frank Denyer, the shakuhachi player Yoshikazu Iwamoto, the pianist Jo Peach M. Phil. B. Mus LRAM, and the enlightened Zen calligraphy master, Tanchu Terayama.
Possibly the most intriguing performance next week may go to Steve Moyes. Let us see! Improvisation, using amplified mechanical diverter valve, with live electronic looping and processing. A man after my own heart. “How long is the performance” I asked, “Flexible. Could be anywhere from 10 minutes to one hour”. Steve runs several improvisation and looping activities in Carms., and I’m very pleased that he agreed to perform for us next week.
Wow! Johann Wlight will play at Listen to the Voice of Fire. I found this article about Wlight’s very hard to find re-co (r) dings. If you are unfamiliar with his wraithlike music this is a fine place to start. My first introduction comes many years ago via a swap with the nascent Larkfall cdr label.
I am both alarmed and thrilled that, a little like myself, Wlight has been living off the beaten tracks in our forgotten part of the world just a stone’s throw from where I was for a long time ensconced.
This will be a rare treat and actually unmissable. I am rather thrilled to be on the same bill.
Thank you Andrew Leslie Hooker for answering the Facebook challenge and providing this striking poster, it may need updating with a few details but I wanted to share it with you as-it looks cool-and I need to get on and confirm details. I am really thrilled at all the submissions from you characters and I think this November event will be astounding. Greg Bevan is assembling a video montage of experimental videos to be screened alongside performers-updates will come.
