Sunday Afternoon Improvisation



This performance is aiming to combine the strong interest of the participants in reduced forms, what they find necessary to enchance certain kind of concentration and intense sharing. From minimal sound/movement, micro tones/gestures and fine nuances to silence and stillness, their collaboration explores further into their own capacities merged into this spontanious improvisation.

The tuba player and composer Robin Hayward, born in Brighton, England in 1969, has been based in Berlin since 1998. He has redefined the tuba’s potential both in the areas of noise and microtonality, and his compositions for other instruments reflect a similar experimental, medium-specific approach. Pieces have been written for him by such composers as Alvin Lucier and Christian Wolff. He has toured extensively both solo and in collaboration. His approach to the tuba has been documented in the solo CDs Valve Division and States of Rushing, along with various collaborative releases. Active in many contemporary music ensembles including Phosphor and Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, in 2005 he founded Zinc & Copper Works for continued research into brass instruments. In 2009 he developed the first fully microtonal tuba together with the instrument manufacturers B&S. Robin Hayward is currently doing a doctorate exploring the acoustics of this new tuba at the Technical University in Berlin.
