7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
The Loft Room @ The Old Fire Station
Noel Taylor and Guillaume Viltard have played together in many contexts, which include the duo and a trio with Oxford-based elctroacoustic musician Lawrence Casserley. In this programme you can expect to hear both the duo and the trio.
The evening will also feature music from Oxford Improvisers
Noel Taylor’s main instruments belong to the clarinet family – soprano, alto and bass clarinet. He is a frequent performer, mainly in London and the UK, but also abroad in Poland, Germany, Italy and Portugal. He is a dedicated improviser, but his work also includes short compositions, conductions with large scale orchestras, and organising musical events. Some of his work involves other art forms, using music as a form of cultural intervention.
It is his eclectic appetite for collaboration across the whole spectrum of improvised music as well as his resolutely unamplified and powerfully physical playing that marks Viltard out as one of the most interesting musicians to emerge from London’s fertile improvised and experimental scene in the last few years.
