Music From ColourDome
"Lawrence Casserley (signal processing instrument), Simon Desorgher (flute & bass flute), with Evan Parker (soprano saxophone), David Stevens (computer processing), Philipp Wachsmann (violin). Lawrence Casserley and Simon Desorgher have been performing in and around Peter Jones' inflatable structures since the early '80s, and as Directors of the Colourscape Music Festivals have invited many performers to work with them and create new performance possibilities in these intensely special environments. Evan Parker, Philipp Wachsmann and David Stevens are among them, and various combinations of these players have occurred in many contexts before; but it was in the ColourDome in Exeter in July 2006 that we first played together as a quintet. ColourDome is a vibrant and special atmosphere in which to work, and that day in Exeter was very hot; the intensity of the color and the heat are embedded in these performances. Maybe that explains the intensely colored music, and the way in which our individual sounds frequently melt into one!"
