German born saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock is teaming up once again with acclaimed UK pianist Liam Noble and one of New York’s finest drummers, Tom Rainey for an exciting brand of new improvised music. Sleepthief play with a wide spectrum of sound, rhythm, space and colour whilst maintaining a strong feeling for form.
Those of you who were lucky enough to see them last year will definitely not want to miss out this year, and if you weren’t there, this is your second chance!
“(…) Laubrock’s open soundworld made a fascinating contrast. Now, characterised by remarkable tonal variation and great empathy with Noble’s gritty piano textures, the slightly loose sound of their duo came into sharp focus when joined by Rainey’s atmospheric drumming. Clinking tones from a half-filled bottle, scattering sticks like matchwood on his drumheads, or thrashing visually graceful arcs above his cymbals, he was a delight both to watch and to hear. A first night of this quality augurs well for the days to come.” The Times, January 2008 (Alyn Shipton)
