Colin Riley, Tim Whitehead

Tides is a major collaboration between jazz sax player Tim Whitehead and contemporary classical composer Colin Riley. TIDES challenges conventional musical boundaries weaving improvisational jazz with contemporary classical forms in a collaboration of musicians from both worlds. In this work the musicians are under the strict discipline of the conductor and written score at one moment and in the next are making their own compositional contribution to the piece. The title of this work reflects the constant movement of musical ideas back and forth across musical shores.

"I met Colin when he invited me to play my 'Nine Sketches' at the Isleworth Festival. I asked for a recording of some of his music and the selection he gave me I played all round Cornwall on the car stereo. One thing I loved about it was no matter how demanding the music got Colin kept me in the middle of it and I couldn't get enough of it. We agreed to collaborate on a project where we would swop ideas over and over trying different ways of working until you don't know as a listener where the material originated. Sometimes I don't know who started what - a real human experiment" Tim Whitehead

"The mysterious and exotic language of Jazz has always intrigued me, dragging me along in a real surge of energy. Watching Tim improvising was an incredible experience and it seemed a kind of musical surfing. He later described it to me as 'giving yourself up on the crest of a wave' and that stuck in my mind. I seized the opportunity to work with him as I strongly believe that a good collaboration brings unexpected and special results in its wake. Inspired by new possibilities I have tried to 'give myself up' in our exchange of ideas and this collaboration has turned out to be truly special." Colin Riley
