Moment’s Notice showcases international leading lights in the art of spontaneous composition. Usually taking place at AMP studios in Peckham, South London, each episode of the series consists of one duo and one trio playing fully-improvised, 40-minute sets. The evening culminates with a combo quintet set. Line-ups are curated by the event creator, George Nelson. For this special edition of Moment’s Notice, George has selected seven (yes! seven) brave musical mavericks who will travel to the depths of Dorset and unite under the hallowed Earthouse roof to light a fire and adventure into the unknown. It promises to be a night to remember!

Daniel Casimir, Double Bass 
Jazz FM Instrumentalist of the Year (2021) and a mainstay in Nubya Garcia and Binker Golding’s bands, Daniel was also a key contributor on celebrated UK jazz albums Camilla George – Isang (2017) and Ashley Henry – Beautiful Vinyl Hunter (2020). He’s performed with a whole bunch of globally acclaimed musicians including Makaya McCraven, Lonnie Liston Smith, Julian Joseph and Jason Rebello.

Daniel’s three bandleader releases, Escapee (2017), These Days (2019) and Boxed In (2022) are all well worth seeking out.

Kadialy Kouyate, Kora, Voice
Mesmeric Southern Senegalese kora player and singer from the griot tradition. Kadialy’s presence on the London creative music scene over the last decade is significant, including collaborations with Adriano Adewale, Greentea Peng, Abel Selaocoe and Camilla George. Kadialy’s two duo pieces with Shabaka Hutchings’ on the latter’s Afrikan Culture 2023 release, are little short of remarkable.

Rosie Turton, Trombone
Nominated for Jazz FM’s ‘Breakthrough Act of the Year’, trombonist, composer and producer Rosie Turton is one of the stand-out improvisers on the UK jazz scene. Her debut ‘Rosie’s 5ive’ (2019), with Jazz Re:freshed, remains one of the label’s high watermarks, and her EP ‘Expansions and Transformations: Part I & II’ (2021) showcased Rosie’s producer credentials and underlined her ability to interweave electric and acoustic music components. Rosie’s collaborations stretch from Nérija to Nu Civilisation Orchestra, Camilla George, Soweto Kinch, Nwando Ebizie, and Dan Samsa.

Max Hallett aka Betamax, Drums
Best known for his work with Mercury Prize-nominated The Comet Is Coming, Max’s reputation as one of the top drummers in the country is well-earned. Among his must-hear releases are Soccer 96 – Dopamine (2021) with fellow Comet Danalogue,

Champagne Dub – Drops (2018) with Ruth Goller, and Betamax v Clive Bell (2021) in which Max teams up with his Shakuhachi-playing father.

MA.MOYO, Spoken Word
MA.MOYO is a Zimbabwean-born writer, sound artist & educator based in London. She was the 2016/17 Institute of Contemporary Arts Associate Poet, is the 2019 Serpentine Galleries’ Schools Artist in Residence, co-founder of literary arts platform BORN::FREE, and the author of Small Inheritances (2018). MA.MOYO’s delicate touch and powerful delivery are one half of MA.MOYO X Marysia Osu, a collaborative electronics, harp and poetry project with Polish harpist/producer, Marysia Osuchowska exploring nature, womanhood and lineage.

George Crowley, Tenor Saxophone & Clarinet
Top tier improviser active across a range of genres, George posesses one of the more distictive sounds amongst UK horn players  – witness his remarkable Can of Worms alongside fellow tenor Tom Challenger. George’s body of work is expansive, from Melt Yourself Down, Red Snapper, Miguel Gorodi Nonet and Rick Simpson’s Klämmer, to the truly fantastic Brass Mask.

Afla Sackey, Djembe & Vocals
Ever since arriving in London with Kakatsitsi Master Drummers of Ghana, Afla has been a cornerstone on the UK creative music landscape. He is the founder and bandleader of 10-piece Afro-fusion orchestra Afrik Bawantu, a major cog in the Ibibio Sound Machine wheel, and his list of collaborators is dizzyingly impressive, including Seun Kuti, Sons of Kemet, Tony Allen, Yaaba Funk, Ginger Baker, Dele Sosimi & the Afrobeat Orchestra and Sun Ra Arkestra.
