with Evan Parker, Paul Hession, Yellow Swans, John Weise, C. Spencer Yeh, Metalux, John Edwards & Culver
at Arnolfini, Bristol, UK
Free Noise is an eagerly awaited first-time collaboration featuring major names from the burgeoning noise and free jazz scenes on both sides of the Atlantic. As free jazz was originally seen as an abuse of established musical forms, so is noise today. This Contemporary Music Network tour brings together the revolutionary genius at the heart of both for a visceral, revelatory and often explosive experience. Over two sets, and through a series of improvised combinations, the paths of these two unorthodox musics will converge to create something both beautiful and terrifying. Expect riotous freeform squalls, minimalist meditations and breathtaking cliffs of extreme volume.

The Free Noise tour was a tour of musicians around the UK in 2007 where Evan Parker, Paul Hession, Yellow Swans, John Weise, C. Spencer Yeh, Metalux, John Edwards & Culver all collaborated together in long form improvisations together than played to the strengths of each performer. The results will probably seem a bit more restrained than expected given the line up but is still incredible they managed to pull it off without sounding like a mess.
