Dr Steve's Jazz Surgery: Text Scores and Textures
Thursday, 11 January 2024
Corks Club, Bearwood
£6 (£5 concessions)
Thursday 11th January is the first Dr Steve's Jazz Surgery of 2024 and will be focused on the theme of "Text Scores & Textures".
Text Scores are written texts designed to encourage certain responses from their performers, and have a history dating back to at least the 1960s, where they were used widely across the performing arts (in theatre, dance, music & other media). Texture is a term with myriad implications in music making: the way a musician makes their sound has much to do with how that sound is experienced by the listener. Here, material and materiality meet in the musical philosophical.
In this exploration of text and texture in relation to improvised music, Dr Steve will be joined by a fantastic line-up of Fiona Troon on bassoon, Amy Coates on double bass (who suggested this month's theme) & Tymoteusz Jozwiak on drums.
