Mathilde 253 is the real-time meeting between avant-rock drummer Charles Hayward, guitarist Han-earl Park, and London mainstay Ian Smith, joined by Lol Coxhill for two pieces.
Hayward / Park / Smith / Coxhill
Released in: Great Britain
"Mathilde 253 is the real-time musical meeting between legendary avant-rock drummer Charles Hayward (This Heat, Massacre), "careful and crafty" guitarist Han-earl Park (Paul Dunmall, Kato Hideki), and mainstay of the London improvised music scene Ian Smith (Derek Bailey, London Improvisers' Orchestra). Mathilde 253 was born out of an opportunity to explore the spontaneous mashup of avant-rock, African-American creative musics, European free improvisation and noise. Joined by the veteran iconoclastic saxophonist Lol Coxhill, this recording documents the weaving of physical virtuosity and humorous sound poetics, a patchwork of restraint, subtlety and recklessness.
