new, original and improvised music in Cambridge

Sloth Racket

Friday 20th September

Playing new music written by Cath Roberts, combining written fragments with graphic notation, this mighty quintet explores the balance between freedom and structure. Compositions range across musical territories, taking in fiery free jazz, minimal improv textures and heavy riffs along the way. 


Friday 18th October

The top rhythm team of Olie Brice and Mark Sanders returns to Cambridge in the company of the ICP Orchestra's celebrated reedsman Tobias Delius for an evening of adventurous and exhilarating spontaneous music making. Propulsive, joyous sounds from an improvising trio that knows how to swing! 

Mike De Souza Trio

Friday 8th November

A vibrant young trio performing original, new music drawing on the sounds of contemporary and free jazz and influenced by the innovative concepts of sound and structure pioneered by Radiohead and Deerhoof. Featuring three exciting and distinctive rising stars, Mike De Souza, Huw V Williams and Jay Davis.
