Matana Roberts & Kelly Jayne Jones on Saturday 19th May 2018
Fat Out are proud to present a special debut collaboration between internationally renowned US composer, saxophonist, mixed-media practitioner, and sonic voyager Matana Roberts (perhaps best known for her acclaimed Coin Coin project, ongoing and unfolding via Constellation Records) and British sound artist/improviser Kelly Jayne Jones, have announced a new live collaboration, the first in a series of special live shows programmed by OUTLANDS, a new national experimental music network.
Roberts and Jones are two artists from disparate backgrounds, finding affinity in practices charged by fiercely personal philosophies on sound. Both artists embrace improvisation, resist accepted narratives of sound, are community-minded and believe in democratic, shared, free-music making that erodes barriers. In other words, they perfectly embody what OUTLANDS is striving for.
Roberts and Jones will weave their own approaches into live collaborative works informed by deeply expressive playing, tactile electro-acoustic interplay and a broader shared politics of resistance/defiance. This show is in under the beautiful and historic roof of The Portico Library which has an intimate limited capacity of 100 so please get tickets early to avoid disappointment.
Music Genres: Alternative, Jazz, Spoken Word
