Seymour Wright 
with Guillaume Viltard and Tom Wheatley double basses and Eddie Prévost drums

Seymour Wright – saxophonist, investigator, artist – lives in London. His practice is about the saxophone – music, history and technique ­– actual and potential; an on-going, rigorous and exhaustive exploration of the instrument. The energy of this learning is applied to various collaborations and contexts to access/share what he has called the ‘awkward wealth of investigation’. His work is documented on two widely acclaimed self-released solo collections Seymour Wright of Derby (2008) and Seymour Writes Back (2015). His current collaborations include XT (with Paul Abbott) lll人 (with Daichi Yoshikawa and Paul Abbott), GUO (with Daniel Blumberg) and STEPS (with esw).
