LAUNCH TOUR for MY IRIS

My Iris is a new project from BASCA award winning composer and saxophonist Trish Clowes. Following collaborations with string quartets and the BBC Concert Orchestra, Clowes now shifts perspective to explore the possibilities of a small ensemble. My Iris features startling melodies, earthy grooves and gnarly lines, creating a sound world both intimate and thrilling. The group also investigate dynamics, textures, exciting interaction and sometimes fiery improvisation. My Iris represents a new chapter in Clowes' career.
'Trish Clowes is a fiercely talented saxophonist' - Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph
'She is his (Wayne Shorter's) inheritor a continent and an ocean away, and a young woman brimming with the surprise and ever-inventive singularity of her magic.' Chris Searle, The Morning Star
“Her themes and harmonies are angular and quirky, and she shares Thelonius Monk’s talent for building an overall sense of inevitability out of surprising details. As an improviser she achieves a similar melding of the unexpected and the inexorable” Barry Witherden, BBC Music Magazine
