hymn are a group exploring spacious improvisations informed by simple composed material. They include Chris Dowding’s breathy trumpet playing and looping, George McKay’s deep and dark double bass playing, and electronics improviser David Ross playing percussion processed through analog electronics.
I think of hymn as a kind of echo of my Moonrise Trio. We have performed at Plink Plonk and First Wednesdays (both Norwich-based nights), and in 2017 will be performing as part of the Wymondham Music Festival, in South Norfolk.
“It was really refreshing to hear the presentation of that simple composed material in an improvised setting” Tim Fairhall (London-based double bassist)
We hope to see you at a gig…
