Join us for this lecture/recital by Yoni Silver, the London based Israeli-born multi instrumentalist, improviser and composer.
His primary instrument, the bass clarinet, has been his vehicle for the development of a unique instrumental style which draws on sources such as the timbral-evolution approach of spectral music, the multi-layered textural saxophone of Evan Parker, Noise, Drone, and Middle Eastern Mijwiz music, all incorporated into an improvisational framework.
He has played and collaborated with musicians such as Charles Hayward, Ashley Paul, Oren Ambarchi, John Butcher, Angharad Davies, Rhodri Davies, John Edwards, Mazen Kerbaj, Catherine Lamb, Thurston Moore, Toshimaru Nakamura, Steve Noble, Stephen O’Malley, Evan Parker, Eddie Prevost, Ana-Maria Avram, David Toop, and Birgit Ulher, and has been a member of Iancu Dumitrescu’s International Hyperion Ensemble since 2011.
Besides his work as an instrumentalist, Yoni has written music for other performers and has produced scores varying from purely text-based instructions, to graphic scores and traditionally notated pieces. His compositions and orchestral song arrangements for various singers have been performed by the Israeli Philharmonic, the Israeli Contemporary Players, and others.
Yoni appears on labels such as Creative Sources, Editions Modern, Aural Terrains, Confront Recordings, Shrike Records, and Chocolate Monk.
Contemporary Music Research Events are free and open to all.
