Musician Brant Tilds will be in residence at Metal Peterborough with his Trio consisting of; himself (quartertone trumpet, steiner evi, and electronics) and two brothers; Beshuar (duduk and saz) and Mohammad Hassan (saz and daf); recently arrived Kurdish refugees from Mosul.
The Trio met in a Music in Detention group. When they first sat down to play together the music that Beshuar played from the Kurdish people of Iraq was immediately accessible to Brant because of his own background in Jewish music and Jazz. Jewish, Christian, and Islamic music; all music comes from the same source. The Trio are developing new work and hope to use this residency to explore their collaboration.
