Step into the playground of seven spellbound sonic explorers for some serious play. Two of Australia’s most adventurous ensembles, Clocked Out and Topology, have teamed up for a brand-new album, brought to you live in all its ecstatic, quirky, childlike wonder. Toy instruments and found objects create off-kilter grooves accompanied by lush orchestrations of strings, piano and saxophone, alternating with bittersweet inner journeys.
This is music that’s more like a landscape than a story – you’ll find yourself transported to different places by John Babbage’s Dance of the Pleiades, Erik Griswold’s Ecstatic Descent, Robert Davidson’s Above Ground, and many more. Lose yourself in some of the freshest new music being made today.
Performers: Topology - Robert Davidson, Christa Powell, John Babbage, Bernard Hoey, Kylie Davidson, Therese Milanovic; Clocked Out Duo - Erik Griswold, Vanessa Tomlinson
