Ivo Neame: ‘Escape Hatch’ @ The North Wall, Oxford
Saturday 8 November 2014, 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
£14 (£10 concessions)
OCM last brought MOBO-award winning pianist Ivo Neame to Oxford when he played a sold-out show with Phronesis. For his new project Escape Hatch he is joined by Italian double bass virtuoso Andrea di Biase and drummer of the moment Dave Hamblett, plus, as special guest on saxophone, Julian Argüelles of Loose Tubes.
Escape Hatch combines compositions by both Neame and di Biase, with influences from Messaien nestled alongside polyrhythmic structures reminiscent of Vijay Iyer’s joyful intensity. The band’s name is a tribute to music’s power to transport both listener and performer alike, and their music is beautifully immersive: delicate, yet exuberant and powerful. Tracks from Neame’s solo record Yatra, released to critical acclaim, will also feature.
The night features a live remix directly after the show by renowned electronic musician Iain Chambers.
