Francesca Ter-Berg, Jessica Lauren & Raimund Wong | Chase Coley & Phil Self
1-2 Jewry Ln, Canterbury CT1 2NP
Cellist, composer, producer & songwriter Francesca Ter-Berg was invited by Free Range to form a new trio and tonight’s show is the result: a brand new group of highly distinctive musicians performing together for the first time.
Francesca is known for her unique musical style blending Klezmer, improvisation and electronic synthesis. Jessica Lauren is a hugely experienced keyboard player and organist playing in the UK jazz and alternative scenes since the early 1990’s with a rare and refreshing minimalist sense of space in her improvising. Raimund Wong uses 4-track recorders with cassette-loops as rudimentary samplers, manipulating ‘found sounds’ through the language of dub and musique concrète. Raimund is also a visual artist, recognised for his graphic work for artists/promoters/labels such as Alabaster DePlume, Church of Sound and International Anthem.
‘Ter-Bergs vocals have a cool charm [whilst her] cello passionately laments’
(Clive Bell, The Wire)
Chase Coley is a musician, instrument maker, professional sound recordist and crab expert. For Chase, there is something primal and mysterious about creating new acoustic instruments: they become magical objects that move the air around us in unexpected ways.
Following his Chase's appearance for Dau's set in FR#251, Phil Self of Dau returned the favour to play in duo with chase.
