The Moore/Clark/Fairclough Trio.
Olivia Moore – Violin
Graham Clark- Violin/ Electric Guitar
Pete Fairclough – Percussion
This is a brand new project. We’ve been collaborating on some compositions which include folk like motives, sections of free improvisation and always focussing on the interaction of the three instrumentalists. Graham is bringing a couple of approaches that he learnt in the band Gong, particularly David Allen’s glissando guitar. Olivia is focussing on the use of a loop pedal, for extra harmonic and rhythmic context. Graham is using harmoniser and delay pedals for extra effects. Pete Fairclough is bringing rhythmic interest and stability.
Graham Clarke is most known as a violinist in most styles of jazz, rock, blues and pop, he specialises in improvisation. He was a member of the psychedelic band Gong. He has also worked with Andy Sheppard, Keith Tippett, Tim Richards, Phil Lee, Paz, Brian Godding, Elbow, Lamb, Bryan Glancy, Little Sparrow, Jah Wobble, Graham Massey, Louis Gordon and Liz Fletcher.
