Alex Ward & Sibyl Madrigal
Alex Ward is a composer, improviser, and performing musician, working primarily with clarinet and guitar. His involvement in freely improvised music dates back to 1986, when he met the guitarist Derek Bailey. He subsequently took part regularly in Bailey’s Company events, and has gone on to become a major figure in British improvised music.
“Alex Ward [is] a compulsively creative polymath of indiscriminately omnivorous appetite … a reliably unpredictable axe-hero for collaborators of all backgrounds.”
Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times Review
