Is this jazz? Is this classical music? Is this contemporary music? Is this experimental music? Yes or No. Is this improvised music? Yes, Yes. Is this the sumptuous sound of a skilled chamber group improvising in all these styles? Yes - without a doubt. 'Swans over Dorking' is a collection of improvisations made on the spur of the moment, without prior musical discussion, on several afternoons between 2015 and 2016.
