Improvisers' Networks North West England

Getting started

Towards The Margins is a weekly radio show playing an hour of improvised music, hosted by Some Some Unicorn leader Shaun Blezard


CLIC is a loose network of improvising musicians based in Cumbria/North Lancashire who are working together to promote improvised music in the area.

Some Some Unicorn has evolved from an online collaborative project into a free flowing collective of improvising musicians, poets and artists who value shared experience and community. The band is led by composer and improviser Shaun Blezard and started during his time as New Voice Composer with Sound and Music. The first SSU album was Some Some Unicorn and The Golden Periphery.
