Biophosmos is the brainchild of bassist Al Swainger, a four piece jazz ensemble featuring extensive use of modern technology to take the art-form in a unique and daring new direction. Mix Chick Corea with Radiohead in a blender then use the resulting cocktail to write film music and you might get something a little like this. The repertoire is largely based around the compositions of Chick Corea but re-imagined for a new 21st century ear. A melodic soundscape of latin, fusion & ambience guaranteed to surprise and delight. For this tour Biophosmos is joined by special guest guitarist Ant Law, whose innovative approach has propelled him to the top of the jazz scene in the UK and beyond.
