TERRY DAY ARCHIVES COMPOSITIONS, IMPROVISATIONS, SONGS, LYRICS & POETRY

(Press release)

‘Aside from music, you are improvising everyday in your life... When you paint a picture, after a while the picture starts to create itself. 


It was the same when I came to improvise... I never to this day discussed, put any parameter in the music I make with another musician... When you are improvising you are creating, you are throwing all the structures out.’ (Terry Day)

For Terry’s 80th birthday today, the 17th of October 2020, Unpredictable Series and Cafe Oto are releasing 20 albums of Terry Day’s Archives on Otoroku. The celebration also includes six of Terry’s solo albums, which will be available on Bandcamp.

Terry Day Archives are the source of a selection of albums covering the period from 1965 up to the present. Most are previously unreleased recordings of songs, tunes, lyrics and improvisations, involving Terry playing numerous instruments, in collaboration with other artists and solo. 

The performers include Mike Figgis, Pat Thomas, John Edwards, Evan Parker, Hannah Marshall, Satoko Fukuda, Eunjung Kim, Steve Beresford, Peter Urpeth, Neil Charles, Adrian Northover, Dawid Frydryk, Ansuman Biswas, John Russell, Davey Payne, Charlie Hart, John Butcher, Alison Blunt, David Leahy, Beibei Wang, George Khan, Maartje ten Hoorn, Sylvia Hallett, Sue Ferrar, J.F Pauvros, Katie Perks, Jerry Hunt and Tony Hymas. 

You can now watch an interview with Terry, Steve and Blanca and 'Conversations with Improvisers: Terry Day’, both accessible free on our website. Terry can be heard on ‘Oto Radio’ at Resonance FM, talking about the archives. Also, the Alterations Boxset limited edition is still available, plus Alterations CDs are available at our shop

TERRY DAY is an improviser, multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, songwriter, visual artist and poet: a first-generation pioneer improviser from the 1960s. He formed a duo with Derek Bailey in the late ‘60s and was a regular member of People Band and, later on, the group Alterations with David Toop, Steve Beresford & Pete Cusack. He has collaborated with many musicians, groups, dancers, painters and poets and has performed in theatre.
