Roger Turner (England)
Grew up amongst the Canterbury music life of the 1960´s with a strong broad jazz root.
Since 1974 work was primarily concentrated on exploring a more personal percussion language through the process of improvisation. Solo work, collaborations with experimental rock musics & open-form song, extensive work with dance, film and photo-projection, involvements in numerous jazz-based ensembles, & workshop residencies have formed part of that development. Mostly, however, the pleasures & discoveries have been in music-making with many of the finest European & international musicians in ad hoc & group improvising collaborations. Tours & concerts have been throughout Europe, Australia, Canada, USA, Mexico & the Far East. Working currently in Konk Pack ( with Tim Hodgkinson & Thomas Lehn), the Recedents ( with Lol Coxhill & Mike Cooper), the T.T.T., the Phil Minton Quartet, The New Flags (with Wolfgang Fuchs & Xu Feng-Xia),the duos with John Russell, Phil Minton... etc. Has recorded over 35 CD´s & LP´s.
Lives in London.
