"the fascinating dance of the very light of life itself"
Raul d'Gama Rose / all about jazz

Daylight | Treader Duos

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 February 2006 they toured in a new project with cellist Okkyung Lee.
