"the fascinating dance of the very light of life itself"

Daylight | Treader Duos | Last Dream of the Morning (with John Edwards)

Sanders' and Butcher's musical paths have been crossing for almost 25 years. In 1993 they performed and recorded in Steve Beresford's sextet, Fish of the Week - and in 2011 began working on Christian Marclay's Everyday.

In recent years a very fruitfull duo collaboration has been active - producing two live CDs.

In 2014 Out of the Machine commissioned Butcher to write Tarab Cuts for the duo - a work that re-imagines and interacts with recordings of early Arabic classical and Sufi music.

In early 2006 they toured (BrumNotes) with Okkyung Lee - and later in the year recorded in trio with John Edwards.
