This week on the show, Danalogue (Dan Leavers), Betamax (Max Hallett) and Shabaka Hutchings, known collectively as the improvisational crew The Comet is Coming. You might know Dan and Max from Soccer96, and Hutchings from his many projects, including Shabaka and the Ancestors and Sons of Kemet. Their new album is called Hyper-Dimensional Expansion Beam. Recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, it’s a blur of electronic music, funk ferocity, and free jazz squall. As that title likely suggests, this talk—which was taped early in the morning for me in the US, so please forgive the grogginess and or lack of sense I make at certain points—goes all over the map, digging into concepts like apocalyptic imagination, the dynamics of improv, and artificial intelligence.Transmissions :: The Comet Is Coming
