Sunwrae, Wauchope Arts and the New Music Network are excited to announce a dynamic solo piano performance by Rae Howell, launching her long-awaited debut solo releases Invisible Wilderness Volume I & II, with support by Meg Morley.
Featuring original and improvised works that oscillate effortlessly across genres, London based contemporary composer-pianist Rae Howell returns to Wauchope Arts on Saturday September 26th as part of her Australian tour. Expect to be captivated by a rare and intimate performance on Wauchope Arts’ newly acquired grand piano.
Recorded over ten days in St Paul and Minneapolis (US) in 2014, Invisible Wilderness is a diverse double volume solo album featuring a collection of Rae Howell’s piano and keyboard works from contemporary classic, popular and cinematic styles to jazz infused improvisations.
Complete with hand drawn illustrations, Invisible Wilderness: Volume I was recorded on a Steinway concert grand and is accompanied by a sheet music publication that features 12 work in printed manuscript format. Volume II is more abstract, sidestepping the traditional piano sound, performed on a Fender Rhodes and various upright ramshackle pianos that immerse the listener in different textures, including the hammers, felts and pedalling.
Meg Morley is an Australian pianist-improviser who, after obtaining a Master of Music in classical piano (USQ), decided to pursue jazz improvisation (studying for a year at the VCA). She is currently living in London where she is composing, performing and playing for ballet and contemporary dance, and will be in Australia to promote her latest solo piano EP.
