About the event

FITR kicks off 2024 with an astonishing line-up of world class improvising musicians. We really are lucky to have these guys come play!

Sentient Beings

Faith Brackenbury - violin

John O'Gallagher - alto saxophone

John Pope - bass

Tony Bianco - drums

This project gathers four strongly individualistic improvising voices from the US and UK for an

exploration of spontaneous composition, developing their collective voice on each performance

of the tour. Blending US saxophonist John O’Gallagher’s cerebral study of 12 tone improvising

and the music of John Coltrane, UK violinist/violist/vocalist Faith Brackenbury’s jazz and

contemporary strings and inventive use of effects, UK bassist John Pope’s energetic jazz, pop

and rock influences and Tony Bianco’s mercurial and octopusian drumming will create a spiritual,

intellectual, powerfully absorbing experience.
