John Pochee and Andrew Robson are two musicians who have long been considered to be at the very forefront of creative music and improvisation in Australia and are both bandleaders in their own right. Listening to Pochee and Robson perform as a duo allows a listener the rare experience of hearing two generations of Australian jazz collide in a torrent of cascading melodies and rhythms.
Brisbane band leader and saxophonist Elliott Dalgleish is undoubtedly one of Australia’s leading avant-garde figures. Established in 2005 and involving 20 of Australia’s leading improvisers, THE MUTE CANARY PROJECT features the interaction of the old and new generations of improvisers, through sonic improvisation and spontaneous composition, drawing upon the traditions of an exciting range of influences – Afro-American Jazz, Fluxus, Dada, Japanese Haiku, Aleatory music, Indeterminate and Game scoring, Improvisational Theatre, Film, and Dance. Working from the heart and the ear, the project decrypts the social sound memories of this sensation-saturated, novelty-hungry age that we find ourselves a part of in the 21st century.
