Musician and composer Kim Macari sits in the presenter chair for the first of two shows. Featuring music that likes to ask hard questions, break rules and follow its own path.
Including the pianist Vijay Iyer’s project with the MC/poet Mike Ladd which voices the dreams of American veterans returning from war, improvisations for radio by John Cage and David Tudor, and new music from the Dutch saxophonist Tineke Postma.
Originally from Fife and now based in London, Kim’s artistic work includes her quartet Family Band, solo trumpet, spoken word and an exploration of graphic scores. She is also a programmer for the Vortex Jazz Club in north London and an artist-activist often appearing as a speaker on topics including gender politics in the arts, political art and national identity.
