Artist Biographies:

"Angharad Davies is a violinist, one at ease in both improvising and composition, with a wide discography as part of varied range of ensembles and groups. She's a specialist in the art of 'preparing' her violin, adding objects or materials to it to extend its sound making properties. Her sensitivity to the sonic possibilities of musical situations and attentiveness to their shape and direction make her one of contemporary music's most fascinating figures. 2015 has seen her being commissioned for a new work at the Counterflows Festival, Glasgow and premiering Eliane Radigue's new solo for violin, Occam XXI at the El Nicho Festival, Mexico.

She's performed at, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, BBC Proms, Music We'd Like to Hear's concert series, is an associate artist at Cafe Oto, is a member of Apartment House, Cranc and Common Objects, been artist in residence at Q-02, and played live with Tony Conrad in the Turbine Room at the Tate Modern. Other collaborations have featured the likes of John Butcher, Daniela Cascella, Rhodri Davies, Julia Eckhardt , Kazuko Hohki, Roberta Jean, Lina Lapelyte, Dominic Lash, Tisha Mukarji, Andrea Neumann, Rie Nakajima, Tim Parkinson, J.G.Thirlwell, Stefan Thut, Paul Whitty, Manfred Werder, Birgit Ulher, Taku Unami and she's released records on Absinth Records, Another Timbre, Potlatch and Confrontrecords."

"In 2003, multi-instrumentalist Milo Fine, the leading light of the Minneapolis improvising scene, made his second visit to London. During his extended stay, Milo Fine performed at several gigs and private sessions with quite a few of the members of the London improvising scene. Two appearances have already made it to CD - the very first gig, a duo with Derek Bailey (EMANEM 4099), and the FREEDOM OF THE CITY set (with Hugh Davies, Paul Shearsmith and Tony Wren) (EMANEM 4212).
The bulk of the material on this double CD ... comes from the Free Radicals series that Tony Wren curates at the Red Rose on the first Wednesday of the month. And while the final choice for personnel was left to Fine, Wren offered suggestions which inadvertently led to the inclusion of the London Bass Trio (in April) and Quatuor Encorde (in May). But, rather than formal groups, Fine preferred to have all the musicians on stage at once, allowing for their experience and sensibilities to form various groupings according to the dictates of the moment."
