Thursday 28th February welcomes an evening of music experimentation and fresh, inventive results, as Group Listening come to Cobalt Studios in Newcastle. Ambient soundscapes and touches on jazz and classical influences, make this a show of true creative spirit as the new project by Stephen Black and Paul Jones arrives.

Clarinet & Piano: Selected Works Vol.1 is a collection of ambient works – from the likes of Brian Eno, Arthur Russell, Euros Childs and Robert Wyatt – arranged for clarinet and piano. The duo met at music college and have shown eclectic tastes and merged those together for something unique, with what they’ve created the place where their tastes meet in the middle.

They both like ambient and new age music, bubblegum pop, Artie Shaw, Moondog and the outsider music handbook Songs in the Key of Z. Spontaneous and beguiling, this is as unique a music show as you’ll ever wish to see.

Group Listening is at Cobalt Studios, Newcastle on Thursday 28th February.
