Visionary Fantasies | all but | sounding music | interworks | trinity

Eddie Prévost and John Butcher first shared the stage at Derek Bailey's 1990 London Company Week. 15 years later they played in duo at Goldie's Oligarch in the East London Foundry. Eddie chose to work with tam-tam, bowed cymbals and drum resonators - as heard on their CDs interworks and Visionary Fantasies.
In addition to European concerts the duo has made a memorable Japanese tour - organised by Hisashi Terauchi and reviewed by Kazue Yokoi at Jazz Tokyo (tour photos - and a visit to Sao Paulo, Brazil.


Additionally, they have recorded/broadcast in trio with John Tilbury - Eddie's AMM partner for almost 40 years.
In 2009 this trio was joined by Christian Wolff and Ute Kanngiesser for a concert on London's Freedom of the City festival (released as Sounding Music by AMM).
Other ventures incluse a trio with bassist Guillaume Viltard where Prévost plays drum kit, and concerts with Rohan de Saram and N.O. Moore.

Cover from "The Prospect of Whitby" by Terry Ellis.

"Butcher and Prévost are not the kind of musicians to turn in substandard performances, but even by their high standards this is a remarkably compelling disc. The recording renders the protesting metallic wail of Prévost's tam-tam and Butcher's disparate whispers, squelches, and immaculately joined multiphonic excursions as vivid as sunlight in the tropics."
