‘On the Go’ is an exciting collaboration between Mancunian spiritual jazz composer Matthew Halsall; music & technology organsiation Drake Music; and four disabled music producers who have been developing their skills through sampling, reworking and performing elements of Matthew’s back catalogue.
Matthew Halsall is a jazz bandleader and trumpeter. He is of the UK’s brightest talents. His albums have won him a legion of fans across the world and acclaim from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Mr Scruff, Radio 3’s Late Junction, MOJO, BBC Music Magazine and BBC 6 Music. ‘On The Go’ was winner of best jazz LP at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2011.
This event is the culmination of a one-week period of learning and experimentation at the STUN theatre space at Z-arts. We are sharing our work with an audience in order to gather feedback and shape the project for the next stage.
The performance will allow the collaborators to showcase and talk about their work as well as demonstrating the possibilities of assistive music technology to remove disabling barriers to music. The performance will last approximately one hour and audience members will be encouraged to ask questions and give feedback.
