Rercording John Butcher & Eddie Prevost (solos & duets)
IKLECTIK London, 4 April 2018, 8:00pm
Although Eddie Prévost and John Butcher shared the stage at Derek Bailey’s 1990 London Company Week they didn’t perform together again until March 2005 – in duo at Goldie’s Oligarch in the East London Foundry. Eddie chose to work with tam-tam, bowed cymbals and drum resonators – as heard on their CD interworks.
Additionally, they have recorded in trio with John Tilbury – Eddie’s AMM partner for over 20 years in – once for a BBC broadcast, and once for the CD Trinity.
In 2009 this trio was joined by Christian Wolff and Ute Kanngiesser for a concert on London’s Freedom of the Cityfestival (released as Sounding Music by AMM).
In 2010 the duo played a 10 date tour of Japan, organised by Hisashi Terauchi.
The Oya Stone Museum concert was reviewed (in Japanese) by Kazue Yokoi at Jazz Tokyo.
Since 2011 they have also performed in a trio with bassist Guillaume Viltard with Prévost playing drum kit.
