UNspellable is a new concert series promoted by ame, taking place around Huddersfield in 2019/20. Featuring both UK based and international artists the program presents a wide range of infinitely fascinating but awkwardly unclassifiable contemporary music – including improvisation, contemporary composition, electronic, sound art, and electro-pop. Kicking off UNspellable with two duos from Tokyo! Guitar legend Sugimoto appears with regular collaborator Saeki, while this is a first UK tour for Kitamura & mmm, bringing modern-day electronica from Japan.
