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.
