N-Ex-T: (New Experimental Tones) Coates/Lines/Gauden 


N-Ex-T (New Experimental Tones)! For this collection of concerts we have drawn inspiration from the underground scene and publications such as The Wire.

Trevor Lines
After an early background in folk and experimental rock bands I took up double-bass in my 30s concentrating on jazz and improvised music with regular involvement in folk and world music and cross-arts collaborations. I was a co-founder of Birmingham Musicians Co-operative and Fizzle, both promoting free improvisation. I composed and performed the soundtracks for the Channel 4 occasional series ‘A Private View’, and was nominated for a 2018 BBC Folk Award for the Chris Foster album ‘Hadelin’. I studied at both Guildhall School of Music and Birmingham Conservatoire, where I am now a visiting lecturer. I’m currently working regularly in a number of line-ups including a sextet with Bruce Coates & Mark Sanders exploring the music of Paul Dunmall and the Ogun label, an improvising string trio with Sarah Farmer & Richard Scott, and my own quintet So You Say featuring Jim Bashford & Alicia Gardener-Trejo

Ed Gauden Drums, already has 4 albums out with different line-ups, studied at Birmingham Conservatoire & aged 19 played Cheltenham Jazz Festival with Bobby Previt, a Bitches Brew project alongside Barry Edwards & Colin Somervell on the same bill as Herbie Hancock. Because of his love for all genres it lead him to play The Green man & T in The Park Festivals with folk pop singer songwriter Jake flowers for BBC Introducing & was an early Sunshine Underground member
