Michelson Morley is a new band formed by Bristol-based saxophonist Jake McMurchie, best known for his work with Get the Blessing and Portishead, in order to create what the band describes as "scientifically aural magic".

What this means in practice is spaciously atmospheric music in which electronics and acoustic instruments combine with a minimalist, evolutionary approach to improvisation. At times dark, subtle and movingly beautiful, at others powerful and raw, the results are always innovative, tuneful and exciting.

The core band consists of McMurchie himself with bassist Will Harris and drummer Mark Whitlam, both key members of the exciting and genre-defying Bristol scene, but for this gig they're joined by rising star guitarist Dan Messore, whose own quartet Indigo Kid has been turning heads for the past couple of years.

This gig forms part of a national tour supported by Jazz Services
