AYM: Bedmakers: Tribute to an Imaginary Folk Band

Friday 20 Jul 2018 6pm

Part of AYM @ Ten – Britten Inspired

Dedicated to mixing improvised music with folk repertoires from different cultures, the group has developed many tools to rearrange traditional folk melodies in a playful yet challenging way, using all the resources of modern music.

Following an introductory weekend, Bedmakers and AYM will have spent a week collaborating and sharing some of these improvisation resources and start building a common repertoire. Simple tunes (mostly two parts melodies) will be used as springboards for sonic explorations, 21st century grooves and on-the-spot arranging.
