Bungarribee is a stunning new Australian ensemble featuring some of the country’s most renowned contemporary musicians and improvisers and led by composer, pianist Gary Daley.
The April 11th Live at the Village concert at Springwood, Gary’s home town, features Paul Cutlan on clarinets and sax, Tunji Beier playing Indian and African percussion, Oliver Miller, cello, loops, and Gary on piano, accordion and loops. The group plays Gary’s new compositions, free improvisation, interpretations of music by classical composers such as Bartok and Hindemith or songs by Bob Dylan in a virtuosic and constant search for spontaneity and beauty.
The vision and inspiration for Bungarribee came after the glowing reviews for Gary’s major 2011 work, Sanctuary, which featured a nine piece band including Paul, Ollie and Tunji. This vibrant group of musicians are each known for their compelling individual approaches to playing. By bringing them and this unusual combination of instruments together Gary is creating a mesmerizing form of chamber music where classical meets jazz, and rhythms inspired by Southern India.
Gary Daley’s reputation as a composer continues to grow, being better known as a musician with The catholics, Greening from Ear to Ear, the James Valentine Quartet and others. His new music being played at this concert was composed in January at the artists retreat Bundanon on the NSW South Coast.
Collectively these four musicians have performed, recorded and toured internationally with countless groups including The Australian Art Orchestra, Mara!, The NOISE, DVA, the SSO, Australian Brandenberg Orchestra.
