Nightports w/ Matthew Bourne

Matthew Bourne (piano) Johnny Richards (piano) Mark Slater (piano) Adam Martin (electronics)

Nightports is based on a simple but unbreakable rule of restriction: only sounds produced by the featured musician can be used. Nothing else. But these sounds can be transformed, distorted, translated, reworked, processed and reprocessed,
stretched, cut, ordered and reordered without limitation. Nightports is about amplifying the characteristics of the featured musician and the sounds they make.

Matthew Bourne’s playing is delicate, lyrical, frenetic and chaotic in equal measure, which is celebrated on the Nightports w/ Matthew Bourne album (The Leaf Label). This performance presents the album in its entirety for three pianos and live
electronics.

Fills me with positivity about where the music scene is at 
Gilles Peterson, The Guardian
