Richard Sanderson : amplified melodeon, dictaphones & small percussion
Mark Wastell : tam-tam, shruti box
Matilda Rolfsson : percussion

Recorded by Adrian Northover at The Horse Improv Club, l'Klectic, Lamberth, London on 28th April 2015

This was my first trip to series of improvised music curated by Sue Lynch at The Horse at Cafe I'Klectik in SE London. What a treat! The evening opened with a sensitive and controlled duo of Hutch Demouilpied (trumpet, flute), Keisuke Matsui (guitar, electronics) this was followed by an intense and beautiful trio of Maggie Nichols (vocals), Caroline Kraabel (alto saxophone) and Charlotte Hug (viola, voice).

This I thought a very hard performance to follow. But the trio of Richard Sanderson (amplified melodeon, dictaphones and small percussion), Mark Wastell (tam-tam, shruti box) and Matilda Rolfsson (percussion) captured all that lay still in the air and produced a set of more, controlled, sensitive, beautiful and creative music.

At times it was hard to exactly locate where the sounds emerged from as the melodeon clicked to the drone of cymbals pulled across the surface of a drum and the tam tam shimmered in response to electronic sound boxes. At one point a small cowbell signalled the music to develop in a new direction and then again small sounds of stones striking together and then hitting the wooden rim of the drum ushered in the fuller overtones of the gong against repetitive figures on the melodeon that rose to complete the piece. As I left familiar words, on the outside wall of the cafe, reminded me as long as I listen and “gaze on Waterloo sunset I am in paradise”.
