Richard Scott – viola / mandolin
Tapiwa Svosve – alto saxophone

Richard Scott is a musician and visual artist based in Birmingham with interests in pattern, liminality and varying modes of perception and control. His musical activities are split between improvising, contemporary scored music and playing traditional Scandinavian music for dance.

Tapiwa Svosve’s interests move between improvisation, electroacoustic composition and contemporary music. From 2014 to 2017 he studied at the Zurich University of the Arts. Explorations of abstract sounds, the relations between sound and space and/or time are topics he’s always trying to address in his various projects. He is also active as an organiser, f.e. the Gamut Kollektiv and the Taktlos Festival.

Richard and Tapiwa have been playing as a duo since they met in 2014 and have collaborated with a wide variety of musicians, individually and together, including Eddie Prévost, Phil Durrant, Bertrand Denzler, Christian Weber, Mark Sanders, Rachel Musson, William Parker, Hamid Drake, Silvan Schmid, Joe Wright and Samuel Rodgers.

They are releasing their first duo album, Macrotonality, on their own label, Physical Correlate, in late 2018.

As ever, the Oxford Improvisers will be performing too.
