Altmusic 2011 presents Kieth Rowe (UK) NZ Tour.

Altmusic is proud to present Keith Rowe as part of Altmusic's programme of exciting & innovative international musicians touring New Zealand in 2011. Well known for his involvement with pioneering groups AMM and later MIMEO, Keith Rowe is the legendary trailblazer of free improvised, prepared guitar techniques.

"Twanging ruler-shaped objects set off a cartoon-style jiggling tremolo, a block of foam causes mountainous scuffling booms...A one-man sound lab and dub studio formed out of a corner hardware shop..." - The Wire, June 1999

A relentless innovator, Keith Rowe has been exploring the potentialities of 'tabletop' guitar and shortwave radio sound production for over thirty years - employing a small army of objects and bric-a-brac including library cards, a rubber eraser, springs, hand-held electric fans, alligator clips and common office supplies to create his compelling aural galaxies. Born and based in the UK, Rowe is a co-founder of AMM (with Eddie Prevost, later including Cornelius Cardew and John Tilbury) and an early member of the Scratch Orchestra in the mid-60s - hugely influencial groups that spearheaded a distinctivly European approach to free improvised sound making. His ongoing collaboration with all-star eleven-piece electroacoustic improvised group MIMEO brings improvised music techniques firmly into a contemporary digital context.
