På årets fyrste Biblioteksmusikk får publikum møta to erfarne improvisatorar i regi av Bergen impro-storband: Steve Beresford (tangentar) og Caroline Kraabel (saxofon), saman med Bergen impro-storband.

Bio nedenfor:

Steve Beresford:
Steve Beresford has been a central figure in the British and
international spontaneous music scenes for over forty years, freely
improvising on the piano, electronics and other things with people like
Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Han Bennink, John Zorn and Alterations (with
David Toop, Terry Day and Peter Cusack).

He has written songs, written for large and small ensembles, and scored
short films, feature films, TV shows and commercials. He was part of the
editorial teams of Musics and Collusion magazines, writes about music in
various contexts and was a senior lecturer in music at the University of
Westminster. With Blanca Regina, he is part of Unpredictable Series,
which produces events and sound and video recordings of experimental
music and art.

Steve has worked with Christian Marclay on numerous Marclay mixed media
pieces. He has also worked with The Slits, Najma Akhtar, Stewart Lee,
Ivor Cutler, Prince Far-I, Alan Hacker, Tania Chen, Ray Davies, Mandhira
de Saram, The Flying Lizards, Zeena Parkins, Satoko Fukuda, The
Portsmouth Sinfonia, Hyelim Kim, Ilan Volkov, Rachel Musson, Vic Reeves,
Sarah Gail Brand, Lore Lixenberg and many others.

Beresford has an extensive discography as performer, arranger,
free-improviser, composer and producer, and was awarded a Paul Hamlyn
award for composers in 2012.

Caroline Kraabel:
London-based saxophonist Caroline Kraabel practises improvisation in
music and in life, valuing the way it enhances awareness of time, space,
sound and relationships, and gives access to a new sense of agency and
possibilities, both for performers and for audiences.

Over more than 20 years as a performer and conductor with the London
Improvisers Orchestra she has sought ways to use cues and instruction to
free large-group performers to improvise together while making novel
listening and playing choices that stretch their capacities and those of
the group.
