Coming up on Thursday 19th May near Waterloo…
Some of you may know that I am from a family of musicians. Whilst we have performed and toured a lot in many different combinations and contexts, it’s actually very rare that we perform publicly as a trio. This is mainly due to the threat of emotional blackmail and our incredibly large egos.
Jokes aside, I hope you can make it to i’Klectik Art Lab on Thursday 19th May at 8pm…
Nick Roth – saxophone
Alex Roth – guitar
Simon Roth – drums

In the summer last year I was sitting in a car with my composer friend Neil Tòmas Smith when he announced that he had written a solo drum kit piece for me. He proceeded to hand me a scrap of paper loosely outlining the piece. I subsequently lost the piece of paper (although I never told Neil that) and forgot all about it. Then I had an email from Neil a few month ago with the full score for ‘Scaffold for Simon’ attached as a PDF. He entered it for a performance through LSO’s Soundhub initiative and I found out at the beginning of the year that it was chosen to be part of a concert this coming Saturday 30th January at LSO St Luke’s in London. The piece explores the idea of switching between three ideas in three different tempos and it’s been a really enjoyable challenge to learn it.
