In this world première, Stuart McCallum celebrates the launch of his new album Distilled in a unique collaboration with internationally acclaimed British artist Linder. From jazz beginnings to DJ culture, McCallum’s music is a distillation of influences, creating a sound that is concentrated and distinctive. Moving away from the complex harmonies and rhythms of jazz, his music is a new hybrid of composition, production and performance. It embraces simple, memorable melodies; bass lines and drum beats, with electronica and improvisation enriched by elegant orchestral writing. Linder creates moving and still images depicting the passing of time within the landscape of the north, along with stage set and lighting to complement McCallum’s spacious, layered music.
