About the event

QU A RR Y is delighted to present an evening with highland  bagpiper, composer & improviser Erwan Keravec - performing his  latest presentation of Urban Pipes.

"Urban Pipes is a utopia aiming to show that the

bagpipe is a universal instrument. To imagine music for

solo bagpipe that does not evoke its cultural origin,

music that is only music, with no other function than

to be listened to. This project also entails a modifica-

tion of traditional playing modes, as well as work on

how to use the bagpipe sound and harmonic strange-

ness outside of strictly melodic practice. All this seems

paradoxical for a traditional musician like myself. Yet

it is the way I have chosen for Urban Pipes, in order to

see what kind of music I can envisage for my instru-

ment." - Erwan Keravec

In seeking out the more unusual sounds, and ways of playing and  listening to his instrument, far from its original cultural setting,  Keravec explores improvised music, free and ‘noise’ jazz, and  establishing a repertoire of contemporary music for solo pipes, trio  with solo voice and with choir. With an interest in movement and in  settings associated with reinvention, he also writes, plays and  improvises for dance.

Support from woodwind polymath Nick Branton
