Rhodri Davies duo

After meeting in Butch Morris’ 23-piece London Skyscraper in 1997, Davies and Butcher embarked on a duo collaboration that has taken them around Europe, Japan and North America and taken in completely acoustic music, electric harp and sax feedback, literal instrument merging, performance with multichanel pre-recordings (by Chris Watson) and improvising in a giant, freezing watertower.

Chris Burn’s ENSEMBLE and Rhodri Davies’ COMMON OBJECTS  have been important larger groups for them both.

A heavyweight collaboration with peaks and troughs of light and dark, quiet and solitude and more intense moments that make for quite the ride. The overall vibe I get is that I’m in some dream world, wandering inside an environment inhabited by magnificent iridescent butterflies and insects I’ve never seen before, creatures not of this earth.
