JAMES RUSHFORD & CALLUM G'FROERER
James Rushford is an internationally recognised experimental composer-performer with a multifaceted practice. In this collaboration with the singular trumpeter Callum G'Froerer, Rushford's organetto and G'Froerer's double-bell trumpet shimmer and pulsate within a field of electronics.
James's Organetto will coalesce with the complex timbres of Callum's double bell trumpet, which extends the possibilities of timbral variety, directional playing, and electronic manipulations of the instrument. Callum is one of only a handful of performers internationally developing new work for double bell trumpet and recently premiered 'Palimpsest Geometry', a new commission by Anthony Pateras, alongside works by Irish Composer Ann Cleare and Callum's own Charcoal VI.

Some musicians tap a reservoir of secret magic that defies explanation. James Rushford is one of these musicians. His music is elusive. Mysterious collagist assemblages bind unexpected elements in forms that are tremulous with tension and cloaked in nocturnal shadows, pierces periodically by weightless light. He has performed and composed for festivals, instututions and ensembles internationally and has collaborations with many celebrated experimental artists.
