Music: Shabaka Hutchings

Shabaka Hutchings

11 September 2016

Saxophonist and composer Shabaka Hutchings, recently nominated for the 2016 Mercury Prize as part of the band The Comet is Coming, reveals some of his processes in making music arrangements by creating a live composition in our Artists’ Studio. Inviting an array of musicians to contribute throughout the afternoon, the composition will layer the various parts written by Hutchings.

This event is programmed alongside Making & Unmaking: An exhibition curated by Duro Olowu at Camden Arts Centre.

Shabaka Hutchings (b. London, 1984) is a saxophonist, band leader and composer.  His primary projects include the group Sons of Kemet which won the 2013 MOBO Award for Jazz Act of the Year and The Comet is Coming who are nominated for the 2016 Mercury Prize for their album Channel the Spirits. In 2014 Hutchings was also invited to join the Sun Ra Arkestra.
