Exuberance and Extinction

Friday 5th July 9.30 pm Parish Hall

Tickets 15 / 8 €

Since their first duo music in 1996, Thomas Lehn and John Butcher have collaborated in numerous projects. One of the joys of duo improvisation is that its meanings are so hard to pin down. They exist in the space between distinctions. “Exuberance and Extinction” is a set of pieces concerned with the interplay between independence and interdependence, the electric and the acoustic, the physical and the cerebral gesture, habit and spontaneity, presentation and transformation, the tangible and the mysterious … ad infinitum, perhaps.

John Butcher, saxophones
