Hilary Jeffery (UK) is a self-proclaimed ‘desert trombonist’ and composer. A central and sustaining influence on his music is a sense of silent-space, which he first experienced in the Sahara in the 1990s. Jeffery aims to share this experience, creating inner-space for listeners and fellow musicians to explore. Recently, his research expanded to new compositional forms, conceived as maps, to explore the spatial dimensions of sound. He is also interested in the inner dimensions and outer limits of intonation. Jeffery performs with a number of groups and musicians, including Zeitkratzer, The Choras(s)an Time-Court Mirage, Lysn, Inconsolable Ghost, and Tonaliens.
