New tape with Sam Andreae: Miaow Argument

A duo tape of improvisations by Sam Andreae and me has been released on the Aberdeen-based Sound Holes label. Daniel from Sound Holes approached me in the depths of 2020 asking if I’d like to put something out on the label, and Sam and I had been holding in-person sessions between lockdowns working on duo music. It seemed like a perfect fit! Miaow Argument is two strings of cut-up tabletop improvisations: I used a whole bunch of objects, parts of my drum kit and a plastic pipe with alto saxophone mouthpiece. It’s super nice to get into a whole different soundworld together, separate from but related to our usual two saxophones setup.

You can buy the tape from the Sound Holes website, and I’ll have some copies at upcoming gigs too.

Update: the digital tracks are now up on my Bandcamp site…



It’s been a while! LUME is back, putting on gigs again in London. Our first outing is a pair of dates at Hundred Years Gallery, where we haven’t hosted a gig since December 2017. Three sets of improvised music in July and August, featuring a whole bunch of our favourite people…

Places are limited, so email the venue to reserve your place (pay on the door when you arrive).

More about the artists can be found on the LUME website, where you’ll also find a refreshed archive of all our gigs and projects since 2013. It was amazing to go through it all while working on the site….quite a list of stuff.
