An evening of experimental electroacoustic improvisation

Published: 19 September 2006

Improvising duo, Springheel Jack, will launch the University of Glasgow Music programme 2006/07

In surroundings more accustomed to the genteel sounds of classical and church music, improvising drum and bass duo Springheel Jack will launch the Music In The University programme for 2006/07 in the Glasgow University Chapel next week (Tuesday 26 September).

Often referred to as the pioneers of drum and bass music, Springheel Jack ヨ aka John Coxon and Ashley Wales ヨ will be joining forces with University organist Kevin Bowyer, improvising drummers and percussionists to make a live recording for release on the web-based experimental music label Seven Things

Initially inspired by contemporary classical music, avant jazz and electronic music, Springheel Jack formed in 1994, releasing a slew of well received records that mixed breakbeats with more left field influences.

The event will take place from 9pm-10pm at the University Memorial Chapel. The concert is free and open to the public. For more information contact John Harris at

The concert can also be viewed live on the University Chapel webcam at the following link:
