Ti/om and Han-Earl Park/Cath Roberts/Alex Bonney at Hundred Years Gallery

Sunday 22nd March! Hundred Years Gallery!

Ti/om (Tom Ward/Tim Fairhall) + Han-Earl Park/Alex Bonney/Cath Roberts. Sunday 22nd March 15:30

Ti/om is the improvising duo of Tim Fairhall (double bass) & Tom Ward (bass clarinet & flute). This will be the launch gig for their new recording “The Narrow Road to the Deep North”, which documents their 2016 residency in a bothy on the Isle of Eigg, off the west coast of Scotland.

They stayed for a week in winter, looking out over the mountains of Rhum; playing together and alone, walking in the hills, and meditating on the relation of music to place, and the process of inspiration. The music seeks an expression of personal responses to Eigg, to the wildness and the quietude both, to inhabit in the music the same emotional spaces as entered into on the island; trying to play in such a way that feels consonant with the state of being out on the hill.

Improviser, guitarist and constructor Han-earl Park (박한얼) has been crossing borders and performing fuzzily idiomatic, on occasion experimental, always traditional, open improvised musics for twenty years. He has performed in clubs, theaters, art galleries, concert halls, and (ad-hoc) alternative spaces across Europe, Korea and the USA.

This will be the first meeting of a trio with master UK-based improvisers Alex Bonney (trumpet/electronics) and Cath Roberts (baritone saxophone).
