This very first evening with our new grand piano at dai hall is celebrated with four improvisers from Sheffield.
The Beckstein piano was inherited from Mick Beck, a legendary saxophonist who ran a concert series OVER THE TOP in his beautiful living room in Sheffield over the decade. The piano is now re-installed and tuned in our space. There will be a very short talk about the piano by Mick, followed by a different combination of sets by four musicians from Sheffield.
A fascinating contemporary insight into Sheffield’s decades long tradition of cross platform musical experimentation.
Acknowledging no hierarchy in sound production, while incorporating sounds from a myriad of sources, the evening will be divided into a number of duo, trio, and a quartet performance. If it makes a sound, and fits in a bag, there’s a strong possibility it may be heard here. Maybe even the bag.
