Nodosus is a quintet consisting of John Butcher (saxophones), Angharad Davies (violin), Matt Davis (trumpet), Dominic Lash (double bass), and Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga (zither). Their music involves a subtle attention to acoustic textures combined with a surprisingly harsh intensity but always with great poise. This event is celebrating the release of their debut CD on Empty Birdcage Records.

Artists Bio

John Butcher

“Butcher’s virtuosity… radiates a compelling and daring beauty too, exploring the edges and limits of the sounds of breath, the force which keeps us alive and connecting.” The Morning Star

Angharad Davies

“the furious vigour of Davies’ bowing [is] matched only by the restraint with which she holds this energy in check” We Need No Swords

Matt Davis

Matt Davis – “mixing blasts and polyphonic screeches that could practically dismantle the world with warmer and more traditional sounds… near-melodies which unfold gently” Alfio Castorina, Kathodik

Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga

Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga – “Things swell and subside, as with topography, and new chasms open up as if according to some plan.” Jeph Jerman, The Squid’s Ear

Dominic Lash

“endless efforts to veer left of every known note or chord” James Costelloe, Newcastle Journal
