The Fat Rain Music Series is produced by Adam Simmons (saxophones, clarinets, flutes, shakuhachi, fujara, toys). Adam is a composer and sought after instrumentalist, involved across many different scenes and genres within Melbourne and beyond. Below Adam introduces and shares his experiences with the performers in the series:
David Brown (prepared guitar) and I have performed thrashing free jazz since 1995 in bands bucketrider, Embers and The Dead Neckers. This duo explores a gentler approach, drawing on my studies of the Japanese shakuhachi and Dave’s interest in composer Takemitsu. It combines Dave’s prepared guitar played with chains, mini-fans, metal clips and wires attached and my shakuhachi and contrabass clarinet.
