Loré Lixenberg at Café OTO 2019
Led by composer saxophonist Matt London Ensemble Entropy is a dynamic new music ensemble / group / band exploring the space between composed contemporary music and free improvisation.
Made up of experienced musicians from these differing practices; Seth Bennett [double bass], Georgia Cooke [flute] and Rebecca Raimondi [violin] are able to explore and blend these musics authentically creating performances that are original and never the same.
By setting up an open uninhibited environment we challenge composers to devise pieces exploring the impromptu finding their own solutions.
Gigs / concerts often include featured guests to showcase their talents before joining the ensemble! These include; multi-instrumentalist / composer Ben Zucker, improvisation piano maverick Matthew Bourne and free improvisation giant Mark Sanders [drums].
February 2018 saw a large ensemble edition of the group named Orchestra Entropy - bringing together 10 improvisers to perform Matt London's extended devised work RITUALS plus music by Jennifer Walshe and Megan Steinberg.
