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.
