Like a trip on an ocean liner manned by Terry Gilliam himself, Kikazaru plunges fearlessly into the depths of their collective knowledge, with tunes emerging from the free improvisation before disintegrating again in an endless search for beauty amidst chaos.
The band: Emma is joined by Lucy Forde (flute), classically trained and studied Indian Classical Improvisation in Delhi; 'beat-seeking' River of Slime (sampler/loops/effects), most accurately described as a 'bountiful source of maniacal musical merriment'; Davide L Rinaldi (drums), studied jazz extensively in Italy; award-winning guitarist and composer Graeme Stephen (guitar/loops/effects).
"You really pushed me out of my comfort zone and I loved it." "You just took my brain out, rinsed it and put it back again. It was just what I needed." "What a trip. That was like an entire gap year crammed into forty minutes." "Like the late night jazz scene of 1960s New York, when the top players came together to really play."
