City University Experimental Ensemble (CUEE) return to IKLECTIK for the fourth year in a row, following capacity audiences at their annual events since 2017. This 24-piece outfit are delighted to be presenting multi-disciplinary work by Australian composer Drew Crawford, who will join the ensemble on the night. CUEE will also premiere a brand-new collaboration with City’s Field Recording Ensemble, and present various approaches to large group free improvisation, interpretations of graphic notation and text scores.
CUEE are a wide-ranging, free-wheeling ensemble of young improvisers and experimental musicians, led by Tullis Rennie and Moss Freed. They have previously collaborated with guest artists Cath Roberts, Sam Andreae and Lilja María Ásmundsdóttir for prior headline sets at IKLECTIK. In 2019 the group responded to improvised sound with visual artist Gina Southgate, co-producing a permanent installation on canvas for the Music Department at City. They have also worked with composers Alwynne Pritchard, Michael Finnissy, Kunsu Shim and performed the work of Pauline Oliveros with Seth Cluett.
