Again, really sorry about the crappy focus throughout this video. Blame the crappy cameraman (me) using a new camera on which the autofocus stopped working.

For more of this sort of thing see (maybe join) the bang the bore vimeo group
This is the second half of my current favourite Bang the Bore performance (so far), and a rare solo performance from arguably the best drummer currently working in UK improvisation. Mark Sanders’ fluent, fluid playing combines a remarkably nuanced sensitivity to tone and timbre with an unfailing feel for continuity, with a mass of textural detail carefully employed in service of the overall performance. It’s a masterful synthesis of influences, ranging from jazz, free improvisation, New Complexity and IDM. He’s played with internationally renowned improvisers Derek Bailey, Peter Brötzmann, John Butcher, Phil Minton and Evan Parker and provided drums for artists as diverse as Broadcast, Jah Wobble, Spring Heel Jack, Speeq and The Remote Viewers.
