notes inégales (the group) was created by Peter Wiegold and David Purser, devoted equally (or unequally) to improvisation as well as written music, and to devising new work alongside composers/other artists as well as playing contemporary repertoire. Featuring some of the finest players in Britain, all the players are equally comfortable with complex modern scores, wide ranging improvisation – and can swing…

Club Inégales (the venue) is a place of surprises, do not expect the conventional!  it’s not a jazz club, not a new music venue, not a comedy club, not a world music venue.But expect all of these to appear, as we search for the best of real new, spontaneous performance.

Every evening has three parts:

First house band notes inégales, under my direction, warm us up. Then the guests are invited to perform their own work. Then, in part 3, something unique. Maybe spontaneously created in the afternoon – with improv in the evening.

We never know what’s going to happen – we take ideas from the audience, folk singers might go into avant-garde textures, free improvisers go bluesy. Writers start improvising with words and characters.
