Tim Hodgkinson, clarinets, guitar; Ken Ueno, vocals; Matthew Goodheart, piano & metal percussion

Increasingly lauded as a composer, with works featured at international contemporary music festivals, and two sets of pieces for ensemble out on the Mode label, Tim Hodgkinson has an equally powerful commitment to intense and highly energized performance practice. In over forty years' work he has placed himself in a series of definitive projects, whether as co-conspirator in the seminal Henry Cow group, as saxophonist with influential avant metal band God, or as bass clarinet soloist in the spectral compositions of Iancu Dumitrescu. His lap steel guitar playing remains completely uncategorizable, bringing subdued and not so subdued echoes of rock musics and other ethnicities.

He is joined by Bay Area improvisors/composers Ken Ueno and Matthew Goodheart for an evening of adventurous and wide-ranging improvisation.
