Four musicians breaking all the rules, creating new compositions in the moment – No planning, no talking between takes, no idea what music will be made or where the session is going to take them, just a couple of hours snatched at an incredible London studio and a finished product that is wild, outrageously energetic, touching, subtly dynamic, and surprisingly coherent.
London-based quartet Ill Considered are well-known for the unplanned process of creation that goes into their work, and the fact that they do not converse between takes in the studio and never know quite where their playing will take them. The music is propelled along by a wide percussive range that deviates from expected rhythmic patterns and often features Middle Eastern styles. This is music that is untethered, minimal and subtle in equal measure, with a wild experimental streak that incorporates elements of electronic music.
- Idris Rahman, sax; Leon Brichard, bass; Emre Ramazanoglu, drums; Satin Singh, percussion
