A brand new night comes to the Northern Quarter. Brought to you by Fat Out Till You Pass Out and Tombed Visions Records, ‘This Music Is Ours’ will be a bi-monthly event catering to the engaging sounds of free music and collective improvisation, pooling sounds from local and international musicians alike.

Chris Corsano, proclaimed as one of the finest drummer of his generation, has been consistently stunning audience with his dazzling technical ability and exploratory ferocity for years. His talent, has seen him form a rich and diverse musical career, becoming one of the most in demand players within the experimental music scene. A short, miniscule summary of his work includes collaborations with the likes of Michael Flower, Björk, Jim O’Rourke, Thurston Moore, Joe McPhee, Evan Parker, Heather Leigh, Nels Cline, Six Organs of Admittance, Sunburned Hand Of The Man, MV&EE, and Keiji Haino. It’s no wonder he’s in so much demand; one glimpse at this master at work would give even the most world weary musician and insatiable need to play with the man. And it is the same opportunity offered to you 17th March, to see Chris perform solo, unadorned, up-close and personal for his only Northern UK date of this tour.

Support comes from Foam – Glue Bowl, a new experimental group formed by members of Harappian Night Recordings and Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides and Jazz duo Paul Baylis (reeds) and Jon Howard (drums), whose trio with Manchester Jazz legend Stuart McCallum has received high praise. Opening the proceedings is a new improvisational unit founded by members of Baptist and Bootleggers and Tombed Visions Records.

Admission for this matinee show is just £5, doors opening at 3pm.
