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
