Monthly experimental music night in Belfast. Short sets, time to chat, space to move.

Alan Niblock (25-30min set approx)

Belfast born Niblock has carved his way through musical structures and styles while continuing to expand his musical horizons. He has worked with the very best artists around and is considered a master contributor and collaborator (Evan Parker / Paul Dunmall / Lol Coxhill). His solo work demonstrates a powerful and warm approach full of ideas and vision, and a flow that most improvisors strive for.

QUB Ensemble (10-15min set approx)

QUBe members will form the house band for the Handmade Music series. QUBe is a music collective based in Belfast involving students, staff, and musicians from inside and outside Queen’s University Belfast. QUBe brings together performers from diverse artistic backgrounds and musical interests.

Lara Jones (25-30min set approx)

Lara Jones is an award-winning saxophonist, composer and producer based in London. Lara contrasts high energy pulsating electronics & beats with minimal soundscapes using saxophone, synths, live processing and field recordings to build structures and stories in her

work. Lara is on the cutting edge of experimental music, both in and out of jazz and is set to release a new EP in 2023.

“Niblock’s playing is characterised by nuance and deftness of touch”Ian Patterson, All About Jazz

Jones is a talent who is stretching the elastic edges of jazz” – Jazzwise
