Alex Ward’s diverse musical activities since the early ’90s have straddled the worlds of free improvisation, contemporary composition and avant rock, and have seen him collaborate with such iconic musical figures as Derek Bailey, Eugene Chadbourne and Thurston Moore, amongst a host of others. He was an integral part of Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward’s acclaimed This Is Not This Heat project, and since last year he has become a member of the legendary band Pere Ubu.

His work as a composer/bandleader has encompassed his own ensembles such as Predicate, Forebrace, the Alex Ward Quintet and Item 4 alongside the long-standing collaborative duo Dead Days Beyond Help (with drummer Jem Doulton); while his solo releases have ranged from unaccompanied performances on clarinet and guitar to the layered studio creations found on 2021’s Gated, his most ambitious work to date.
