Sentient Beings gathers four strongly individualistic improvising voices from the US and UK for an exploration of spontaneous composition, developing their collective voice on each performance of the tour. Blending US saxophonist John O’Gallagher’s cerebral study of 12 tone improvising and the music of John Coltrane, UK violinist/violist/vocalist Faith Brackenbury’s jazz and
contemporary strings and inventive use of effects, UK bassist John Pope’s energetic jazz, pop and rock influences and Tony Bianco’s mercurial and octopusian drumming will create a spiritual, intellectual, powerfully absorbing experience.
