Kelham Island Museum - Saturday Pt1

POWER OUT is a performative mish-mash of drum machines, bassline sequencers, and

live drums to create a whirling atmosphere of beats; some dancey, others immersive. Close

your eyes and let yourself be lit up in a space of grooves and loops, and energised by the

raw interaction of live drums and electronics. POWER OUT has been performed at events

such as Manchester Jazz Festival, and Sage Gateshead’s Sage Sessions.

In addition to teaching, Sarah is an active performer and co-writer in several projects.

Among others, Sarah plays drums and drum machine in Beyond Albedo , an improvisatory

EDM quartet from outer space, which is on Jazz North’s 2019-20 Northern Line roster; and

guitar and drums in Le Shig , an alternative function band that has performed in several

countries in Europe, and more recently, Shambala 2019. Sarah has developed her debut

solo project, ‘POWER OUT’, thanks to support from Manchester Jazz Festival’s 2019

hothouse programme, and Sage Gateshead’s 2020 Summer Studios residency.
