About The Event

As active participants in Leeds’ music scene, the inspiration behind the groups’ inception was to distance itself from the perhaps overtly technical aspects of academic music and to find expression in compositions inspired by elemental forces, social politics and devotional music, whilst retaining a sense of joy and exploration through improvisations that run the gamut from singing bowl and gong soundscapes to full band conversations; from a whisper to a roar.

Heavy influences are Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders, Art Ensemble of Chicago, African, Indian and devotional music and all that influences those musics; hence – ‘Ancient Infinity…’

The current (flexible) lineup includes: drums, double bass x2, piano, electric guitar, alto saxophone/flute, tenor saxophone/flute, bass clarinet/flute and violin, with all members playing percussion.

DJ J French from 7 // Doors at 8 // Music
