We were delighted to welcome the fearless drummer/percussionist Mark Sanders as our featured guest! The evening kicked off with Georgia Cooke's crème de la crème of Oxygen a lively duo for that traditional line up of alto flute & double bass based on watching the swirls of leaves in the wind! A free improv set follwed featuring Sanders / Bennett / London. The half ended with Phil Maguire's hypnotic work ferric for alto flute, baritone saxophone, drums and electronics.
Freya Waley-Cohen's funky jig Spin for the ensemble opened the second half in energetic fashion. To conclude the night all the performers came together to interpret a set of graphic panels devised by Matt London. These Panels served as starting points for the performers to improvise with just a hint of direction!
