John Butcher performs his first solo concert in New York, entitled Fixations, on saxophone.. He has been described in The Wire as “revelatory, his tenor an ensemble in itself – held aloft by circular breathing, the multiple trills and multiphonics adding and subtracting strata from a twisting complex of voices with astounding control, interspersed with occasional lyrical eruptions”. Past projects include John Stevens’ SME, Derek Bailey’s Company, Phil Minton’s 4-tet and Butch Morris’ London Skyscraper.
