BIO and DISCOGRAPHY
Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides.
Kelly Jayne Jones – Flute/voice/tape/electronics
Pascal Nichols – Drums/Voice/electronics
Part Wild Horse's Mane On Both Sides formed in 2007 in Manchester.
"Percussionist Pascal Nichols and flautist Kelly Jones have minted a profound new form of improvisation that carves spectral shapes from silence and creates free music with a spare orchestral beauty and deep psychedelic atmosphere. Augmenting their instruments with electronics, tapes and old military communication systems, they expand the basic free jazz format with drones, feedback and zoned vocals, taking the Cherry/Blackwell duets and relocating them upwind of the alien soundtracks generated by Japan’s Taj Mahal Travellers." Volcanic Tongue 'Tip of the Tongue 2011.
Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides work and expand on the flute/percussion format, taking a spiritual, freely improvised approach to music and sound.
