I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Good is a new recording collaboration of Sam Ashley and Werner DurandSam Ashley’s mystic parables imbued with benevolent humour are drawn from a lifelong pursuit of a present-day shamanism. Werner Durand’s wind work on invented and traditional instruments stems from the minimalist tradition, routed through his unique study of obscure world musics. 
 
The two artists first met in Berlin in 1984 while Sam was touring Atalanta with Robert Ashley’s opera company, with whom he was a principle vocalist for many years. Sam Ashley’s work has appeared on other Unseen Worlds releases (J. Jasmine: My New Music) and in solo and collaborative performances alongside “Blue” Gene Tyranny and other artists across the world. 
Werner Durand, also active since the late Seventies, performs music for saxophones, Iranian ney, and self-made wind instruments. He is a linchpin figure in the experimental music scene in Germany and abroad following formative studies with Ariel Kalma and Gilbert Artman in Paris, Indian Classical Music with Kamalesh Maitra, and Iranian Ney with Ali Reza Asgharia. He has worked notably with David Behrman (Music From Memory), Arnold Dreyblatt (Animal Magnetism), MuslimgauzeHenning Christiansen,Catherine Christer Hennix (Born of Six), David Toop, and Amelia Cuni (Ashtayama,Diasporagas). He also was a longtime employee of Ursula Block’s gelbe MUSIK(Broken Music).
