MIKE NOCK AND LAURENZ PIKE (9pm)
“Sumptuous and elegant” ★★★★ John McBeath, The Australian
Mike Nock and Laurenz Pike have shared a musical friendship spanning nearly 20 years. Over this time they have created a wealth of divergent and inspiring music; Pike crossing over into the world of electronics and rock with his bands PVT, Triosk and the recent Szun Waves, and work with artists such as Jack Ladder and Sarah Blasko. Don Banks Award winner Mike Nock has continually remained at the forefront of modern jazz and creative music in Australia and NZ. Their two duo albums together have seen them develop a shared language of improvised music as a vehicle for spiritual discovery and storytelling. Their most recent album Beginning And End Of Knowing was recorded in Oslo’s famed Rainbow Studios, and was winner of the 2016 Jazz Bell Award for ‘Best Produced Album’.
