About this event
UK-born, Berlin-based composer, percussionist, producer and instrument maker Bex Burch has employed percussion and hand made xylophones to carve out a unique sonic space for herself.
Her restless creativity and desire to embrace new musical challenges across a range of percussive instruments has seen her recorded music straddle the divergent worlds of avant-garde, post punk, and improvisation with equal success.
Burch has previously released as part of Boing! with Leafcutter John, and with the critically acclaimed Strut-released Flock with Londoners including Sarathy Korwar and The Comet Is Coming’s Danalogue. She also runs the band and label Vula Viel and has collaborated with artists from Peter Zummo to Dame Evelyn Glennie.
Bex describes her sound as “messy minimalism.” Her debut solo album, 'There is only love and fear' (named The Guardian's Contemporary Album of the Month) was released in October 2023 via Chicago avant-garde label International Anthem.
