E: Tom Challenger

Ma's music is a combination of improv, expansive ambient, glitchy electronica and dub bass, based upon compositions by Tom Challenger (a member of the bands Outhouse, Red Snapper, Brass Mask, Fofoulah, and the Loop Collective). I mostly use Ableton for live sampling and processing of the others' instruments.

Tom Challenger - sax, synths
Matt Calvert - electronics, synths
Dave Smith - drums
Ross Stanley - organ, rhodes

CD: 'The Last' rec. Dec 2008, released 2010 (Loop Records)

BBC 5/5
The Guardian 4/5
Jazzwise 4/5
Music OMH 4/5

Increasingly Tom and I are using synths, and have performed as a trio without Ross, and as an expanded sextet with additional percussionists John Blease and Ben Bryant
