INCLUSION PRINCIPLE - HALTON MILL, LANCASTER
Martin Archer - electronic keyboards, laptop, saxophones, clarinets, recorders
Hervé Perez - laptop, saxophones
Peter Fairclough - drums and percussion
Inclusion Principle operates in a space between electronics, nu-jazz, contemporary electroacoustic music and free improvisation tending towards a minimalist approach.
Both Martin and Hervé play a similar set up of laptop and woodwinds and yet have a different approach to their instruments. Put together, there is a chemistry that inspire and drive their improvisations towards a wide range of soundscapes.
The choice of instruments and sounds on their palette allows them to dramatically change their music between beat driven electro, minimal and microtonal improvisation via electroacoustic experimentation and nu-jazz.
Peter Fairclough fills a space in the soundscape that was meant for him, bringing a range of sounds and acoustic instruments. His inventive use of hand percussion, cymbals sculptures and bells blend perfectly with abstract textures while establishing definite jazz grooves that sit comfortably amongst electronic beats.
There is something for all in their music. First and foremost, they share an enjoyment of sound and performance which touches their audience, no matter what style they may adopt.
Also on the bill, our hosts - Miles Doubleday, Clayton Jackson and Francis Roe.
