British bassist, composer & educator Barry Guy, and American percussionist, composer, visual artist and educator Gerry Hemingway, are two of the most respected improvisers working in this sphere today. Internationally recognised masters in their field, both have contributed hugely to shaping the improvised music landscape internationally over the past 4 decades.

Pianist Izumi Kimura continues her journey into unknown with these master musicians, following her successful duo concerts in 2017.

The programme of original music, developed during their residency in Tyrone Guthrie Centre.

Says Kimura, “I feel excited to bring these musicians together, and to throw myself into this extraordinary musical situation and chemistry. Improvisation is about being in the moment, here and now. And each audience member is an important participator and a real time creator of the music too. Audiences are invited to join the journey with performers, through the act of listening, and each journey is unique to individual.”
