Tonight Decentred perform improvisations and realisations of indeterminate scores by Michael Pisaro and John Cage.
“These four musicians introduce eclecticism and insight to pieces by John Cage, California-based composer Michael Pisaro and to two purely improvised structures; the best part of it all is that their respective vocabularies are so distinctive and versatile that each work is delivered with insight and spontaneity.” – Marc Medwin, Paris Transatlantic
Biography: Decentred was first put together in 2006 to play sections of Cornelius Cardew's Treatise for the Cornelius Cardew 70th Birthday Anniversary Festival at Cecil Sharp House in London. Since then the group has created a CD of improvisations and realisations of indeterminate scores by John Cage and Michael Pisaro released on the Another Timbre label. For this concert the quartet will present a completely improvised programme of music.
Decentred: Tom Chant, Angharad Davies, Benedict Drew and John Edwards deal with contemporary compositions that demand improvisational acumen. Alternating busy improvised pieces and slowly morphing compositions the composed material is presented with the freshness of improvisation and their music presents engaging and persuasive solutions for score interpretation.
