Michael Finnissy students and multi-instrumentalists Ignacio Agrimbau and Hossein Hadisi are two of the three regular members of the After the Rain ensemble (the third, bassist Joe Kelly, couldn’t attend this performance). Their unique sound is a synthesis of all their numerous activities, as composers, improvisers, teachers, music therapists and ethnomusicologists. Their debut album is forthcoming on Agrimbau’s AT Field label; I think they’re one of the best and most interesting ensembles around so I’ll be singing its praises as soon as its available. Gloating: I’ve heard it, you haven’t!
This is the entirety of their performance at Bang the Bore XI: Psychobabble.
