Noel Taylor

An active musician in the London free improv scene, occasionally playing at venues such as the Vortex, Battersea Arts Centre, Cafe Oto, Ray's Jazz, as well as appearing in other European cities, such as Krakow, Berlin and Rome. CD's released via his own label, citystream, include albums with 'Splatter', Niko Meinhold, Alberto Popolla, 'Uncle Rabbit', the 'Improvising Clarinet Ensemble' and solo and group releases on net labels - Headphonica and Clinical Archives. He is a member of the London Improvisers Orchestra, Splatter, Redstart and the Raw Stories Collective, but also collaborates with other musicians whenever the opportunity arises.
”this duo can create suspense : sparse clarinet tones, and the use of extended techniques on the piano strings, make you want to know what is coming next, how these otherworldly sounds will evolve, merge, bounce back. Without working with themes or even recognisable patterns, the two musicians master and integrate the legacy of their training : from classical music, jazz, blues to more modern aspects of new music and avant-garde, nicely navigating between romantic lyricism and abstract tension and discovery, this is music with character and vision. Both are also great at using silence and pace in the development of their improvisations.”
