Part of The Pumphouse
Improvising pianist and keyboardist Tom Rogerson, a former student of Harrison Birtwistle and founder of post-rock group Three Trapped Tigers, released his debut album to critical acclaim on Dead Oceans in December 2017. A collaboration with renowned musician and producer Brian Eno, Finding Shore is an elegant, expansive record of meditative piano improvisations, looped and cut-up chord sequences, MIDI and physical sounds in juxtaposition.
Having first trodden the Pumphouse stage as a Hesse Student, Tom’s performing career has since lead him from the lounge of a dilapidated Peterborough hotel to playing alongside The Bad Plus’ Reid Anderson in New York and supporting Pierre-Laurent Aimard in Berlin.
Here, he makes a welcome homecoming.
