‘Dreamlife of Debris’
Kit Downes fundraising concert for musical keys
We are delighted that our patron, Kit Downes will be performing another wonderful fundraising concert for Musical Keys as part of a tour to promote his new record on ECM.
For his second recording as a leader for ECM records - 'Dreamlife of Debris' - pianist, organist and composer Kit Downes has brought together some of his closest musical collaborators, Tom Challenger (saxophone), Lucy Railton (cello) and Phelan Burgoyne (drums), in a collection of interlocking works written for improvisers. Long form songs and melodies collide with other-worldly extended techniques and deteriorated field recordings to create a set of pieces that explore our own emotional connection to objects, and how they then connect us all together.
6th December 2019, Anteros Arts Foundation, 19:45 (music at 20:00). £13 (£10 concession).
