Winter Jazz: Mike Rivett's Digital Seed with special support by Abraham/Morgan/Vanderwal
“To say that Mike Rivett‘s Digital Seed sounds like no other album would already be a compliment. That it is also stunningly good is a bigger one.” The Sydney Morning Herald
Strap yourself in and prepare to be hurled into new sonic terrain. 2015 Freedman Fellowship finalist Mike Rivett returns to Sydney to deliver a special, full-album performance of his critically acclaimed release, Digital Seed. The music will be a journey from what Mike describes as “the earthy, wooden, metallic world of acoustic jazz, through future-tech fusion, finally climaxing in the unleashing of sonic weapons”. But fear not, he says, these weapons will only be used for good.
George Garzone, who knows a thing or two about the force of music, is impressed: "Mike is a strong voice on the saxophone ... come and hear him play ... he is scary!"
