Charles Hayward is a drummer, singer and composer, and was a founding member of the experimental rock groups This Heat and Camberwell Now. Since the late 1980s he has concentrated on solo projects and collaborations, including Massacre (with Bill Laswell and Fred Frith), Monkey Puzzle Trio and Albert Newton (with Pat Thomas and John Edwards).

Throughout a nearly 50-year career Hayward has developed idiosyncratic attitudes and insights into a wide range of soundwork, spanning improvisation, song and sound as sound, using order and chaos as creative energies.

For this show he’s joined by the London Contemporary Orchestra for a new collaboration.
