UP17 Re-invented

Creative musicians are always re-inventing something, whether it is their sound, their methods of composing and performing music, their careers or their lives, quite apart from the myriad ways of using and abusing instruments. In this issue, ‘re-invention’ goes way beyond the tools of music, but there are plenty of amazing sounds to hear, from tangoing sirens to digitised cutlery; from temporary instruments of ice to the bewildering possibilities of the ubiquitous laptop, packed to the digital rafters with alchemical software.

Artists and composers featured in UP17 include Will Menter , Efterklang, Tango Crash, Jeff Reilly and Jerry Granelli, Piotr Kurek, Nicolas Repac, Stimmhorn, Terje Isungset, Spaturno, Askew and Avis, Andrew Peggie, Roxanne Turcotte, Arild Andersen, Stefan Klaverdal, Bjorn Kleiman and Paul Lansky.

The issue also features thought-provoking essays by Will Menter, Paul Lansky, Chris Heaton, Kevin Le Gendre, Julian Maynard-Smith and Andrew Cronshaw, and some striking, specially commissioned images from graphic artist Jamie Dobson, in what is perhaps the most international issue of UP to date.
