Stephen Chase composes, improvises, and walks quite a lot. His work veers erratically between generative methods and following-his-nose, and is drawn to, amongst other things, the relationship between physical action and sound production, group interactions, and the acoustic characteristics of a space. He has collaborated variously with Ross Parfitt, Philip Thomas, Exaudi, Quatuor Bozzini, Choir Brevis, Apartment House, Ensemble Zwischentöne, Music We’d Like to Hear, Sound Intermedia, BBC Singers, Mick Beck, edges, THF Drenching, Gwilly Edmondez, Coastguard All Stars, Husk, Gated Community, Damo Suzuki, omoplate sarangi, murmuration, piggle and Freaking Glamorous Teapot. He co-edited a book of essays with Philip Thomas on the music of Christian Wolff for Ashgate. He has also returned to playing other people’s music for solo guitar, specialising in premiering music by composers whose first initial is J: so far, James Saunders, James Weeks, Jennie Gottschalk and Jürg Frey.
