Fusebox: Shatner's Bassoon + Snorkel
Shatner’s Bassoon are a group of six Leeds based composers/improvisers. Since forming in 2010 they have performed regularly around the UK, had a live show featured on BBC Jazz on 3 and collaborated with artists such as pianist Matthew Bourne.
Influenced by contemporary artists such as Tim Berne, Mr. Bungle, John Zorn, Frank Zappa, Tyshawn Sorey and a range of rock and electronica; and with a combined experience that includes eastern European folk, Hindustani music, Brazilian music, straight ahead and free jazz, reggae, metal, contemporary classical and musique concrete; Shatner’s Bassoon have developed a unique collective sound based on developing complex compositional structures through improvisation – allowing the music to be naturally infused by their experiences.
