Launching his first album as leader and composer, multi-instrumentalist and composer Paul Cutlan joins forces with ground-breaking string quartet The NOISE and bassist Brett Hirst. The major work entitled Across the Top (Tall Poppies label) is an extended suite inspired by Cutlan’s experiences travelling through the Kimberley region of North-West Australia with world music group MARA! for Musica Viva. The music draws together many styles close to Cutlan’s heart, including 20th century classical music, jazz improvisation and dance rhythms from the Balkans and South America. These elements fuse to create an almost cinematic work, inspired by the imagery of mineral-rich red landscapes, vast plains, imposing ancient ranges, lush gorges and rivers.
