Imagination is central to the connection between the audience and these performers. What enthrals me is how the music can be approached in so many different ways. Sometimes I will listen whilst visualising the creation of some vast abstract painting; Mark Wastell’s chimes conjuring yellow flashes of light offset by electric colour washes from Rhodri Davies’ e-bowed harp, and organic surface textures brought to life through Burkhard Beins’ found objects interacting with the surface of a meticulously mic’d drum skin. Or another day, let the imagination run free as the sound embraces you, as if being driven through a new city in a country and culture previously unexplored. Senses heightened, taking in sights and sounds never before encountered, unsure as to what lies around the next corner.
