This show was 9th in the global avant-garde chart.
Coinciding with his debut double album "S!CK" out on New Soil this november, tyroneisaacstuart joins Rai Wong for a 2-hour meeting in sound & spirit via music and free-improvisations utilising alto sax, moog synthesizers, live effects, and tape loops both generated on-the-spot and featuring numerous fragments of tyrone's visionary 3 part work, of which "S!CK" forms its part one.
As well as being an instrumentalist, tyrone is also a producer and an acclaimed dance artist. Rai has designed the package for the album but they have started working together musically in 2019 for a series of shows at Battersea Arts Centre in April 2020 which didn't see the light of day. This radio session marks a welcome return to performing together after a period of time of extended exploration and development for both artists. See below for full tracklist.
