In conjunction with OUTLANDS, Supersonic presents...a very special new collaboration bringing together US mixed-media composer and saxophonist Matana Roberts and UK improviser and flautist Kelly Jayne Jones.

The artists will weave their own approaches into live collaborative works informed by deeply expressive playing, tactile electroacoustic interplay and a shared politics of resistance and defiance.

Matana Roberts​ is an internationally renowned composer, band leader, saxophonist, sound experimentalist and mixed-media practitioner. Roberts works in many contexts and mediums,
including improvisation, dance, poetry, and theatre, and has released a diverse body of solo and ensemble work under her own name on Constellation Records and Central Control over the
past decade.

Kelly Jayne Jones ​makes use of varying combinations of prepared recordings, text, rocks, found sounds and flute. Her work beckons a tussle with uncertainty, inviting exposure and
vulnerability in performance, chasing experiences that open our chasms within, without restraint. KJJ has had residencies at Arnolfini in Bristol UK and Kunstalle Bergen, Norway, and has produced commissioned works for Haris Epaminonda at dOCUMENTA13, Tate Modern, ICA London, Schirn Frankfurt, Point Centre Nicosia.
