about

Belfast based drummer Stephen Davis is one of the most sought-after musicians and collaborators, working today. He is a member of Anthony Braxton’s ‘The New Standard’ and the Alexander Hawkins Trio, and has worked with Marc Ribot, Evan Parker, Kris Davis, Paul Dunmall, Django Bates, Van Morrison, and Matthew Bourne to name but a few.

His new project ‘Gleaming World Unit’ was inspired by time spent in the Wicklow mountains, being surrounded by nature, and listening to the compositional power of the landscape. This led to a brand-new approach to writing music, where improvisation and composition are blurred, and ghost images, nature, old photographs, and conversations with elders all fed into the music.

Supported by ACNI’s Commissioning Award, Davis has brought together a 5-piece group to bring this work to life. Debuting at Brilliant Corners, ‘Gleaming World Unit’ is brand new, and we can’t wait to see where it goes.
