National experimental music touring network

OUTLANDS #1 May 2018


Internationally renowned US composer, saxophonist, mixed-media practitioner, and sonic voyager Matana Roberts (perhaps best known for her acclaimed Coin Coin project, ongoing and unfolding via Constellation Records) and British sound artist/improviser Kelly Jayne Jones, are the first in a series of special live shows commissioned by OUTLANDS, a new national experimental music touring network.

Projects like these act as the first line of resistance against a potentially myopic, monoculture and should be supported.

Over the decade of the The Quietus’ existence we’ve seen the infrastructure around live music in the UK change beyond all recognition (...) All of us at The Quietus are therefore very excited to see how Outlands develops over the coming years.
