grutronics featuring evan parker
I have been freely improvising for twenty years, carving out my own musical language through day to day work and intensive gigging for the last twelve years. What constitutes my main body of work is Grew trio, a mixture of acoustic piano inventions, tenor sax/bassoon Mick Beck, and Phillip Marks drummer Bark member and longstanding collaborator of eleven years. I also work in an electronic music setting grutronic, with brother Nick, harmonica, airfx, thumb piano, Richard Scott, movement controlled synthesizer, David Ross, handsonic, moog pedals and effects, and solo piano playing. Other musical groupings have included, Pianoforte tour, Keith Tippett, Howard Riley and Pat Thomas, also toured nationally with John Jasnoch, Charlie Collins, Paul Hession, Pat Thomas and dancers. Highlights of national and international festivals have been in The London Jazz festival, Manchester Jazz festival, Nickelsdorf, Austria and Ulrichsberg, with extensive touring in Germany. Discography, include six solo albums, releases with Mick Beck, grutronic and Grew trio.
