New Project Live Debut: Nightports / Middleton Hall, Hull / October 12October 2nd, 2017
I’ve been working with Adam Martin and Mark Slater (AKA Nightports) in various educational settings over the years, but this is the first time that our collaborative endeavours as musicians / producers, has come to fruition.
The Nightports Manifesto is a simple one: only the sounds of the featured musician can be used – then, they can be manipulated… This restrictive practice is what gives their vision a singular focus. We will be releasing an album on The Leaf Label earlier next year but, before we do that, we’re going to have a go at performing it live, with the help of improvising virtuoso Johnny Richards, who will be joining myself and Mark at one of three pianos we’ll be using for this performance.
Come to Hull, and say you saw it there first…
