Evan Parker is a virtuoso saxophonist who, with Derek Bailey, John Stevens and Tony Oxley (to name a few), pioneered the British free improvising scene in the late 60's. Since then he has developed a highly personal and unique style which employs circular breathing and total control of the saxophone.

Some of his more permanent ensembles include the Alex Schlippenbach Trio, trio with Paul Lytton and Barry Guy and the Electro-Acoustic Ensemble. In the latter he has experimented with real-time electronics, used to manipulate the improvised phrases and create soundscapes unreachable with acoustic instruments.
