Event Details

The People's Republic of Australasia is thrilled to announce another of the biggest names in improvised music will be performing HOME CONCERT SERIES Number Two! Admission is FREE, but RSVP is essential - final venue and concert details to be confirmed by return email.

Jim Denley:

'I first started playing wind instruments seriously at the age of 10. Initially it was Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) and Roland Kirk that inspired me, but soon enough it was also the sound itself that led. 43 years later I still feel positive and unconstrained by the search.

The flute music from the Solomons, New Guinea and the Amazon is particularly inspiring these days. In much of the music from these regions the flute signals a wormhole to that which is beyond the everyday.

But truthfully these (for me) mediated influences are smaller than the influence of the playing itself. To be playful with sound, acoustics and duration is such a powerful force in my life. Sound, the potentials of instrumentalism, and a commitment to time/site specific work (improvisation) take me to those moments where, as Chris Mann says, 'the part that is the whole, has no analysis.'

I don't know why, but I'm very excited to be doing this Home Concert in Camperdown. It's the first solo I've done in some time and it feels like a very good time to do it.'
