The programme will include structured improvisations, alongside Bach, Satie, his own Etudes and some jazz.

The improvisations are based upon different polyrhythmic patterns, freetime and alternative tonal systems.

“My music is designed and intended to unravel the mind and bring the listener deeply into the present moment: at times gently; sometimes fiercely. Polyrhythms are when the music has simultaneous multiple pulses; freetime is when the music has no regular pulse at all. I am also developing my own system of modes.”

In the second half, Edward will play two of his own Etudes, taken from his 2017 CD recording, “12 Etudes” and featured on Radio 3.

Edward will also feature variations on Bach’s Eb minor prelude (book 1). “These pieces are harmonically amazing and the music is in a constant state of transition.”

He will also perform Satie’s three Gnossienes and his own variations on some jazz standards, demonstrating that his ideas can be transferred to other styles of music.

Edward is also a great communicator: witness his five part video series on Polyrhythmy – which has had over 16,000 views on Facebook. The concert will feature a short interview, in which Edward will discuss his current work and musical ideas.
