All In Presents: Lo-Res & Sludge Party

All In is a new organisation with the goal of creating a more inclusive environment for musicians and audience members in the Melbourne jazz and improvised music scene. For this night of the All In Residency, we are presenting Lo-Res and Sludge Party. These events locations alternate monthly between The Jazz Lab and The Brunswick Green. This month it will be at The Brunswick Green.

Sludge Party (8:30pm)

It's a bird, it's an egg, it's Sludge Party! the anti-heros of swamp tango, ready to rip hearts out and replace them with musical cigars and shiny, cranky honk fuzz that tastes very fine, sweetly smokey, and reminiscent of your grandmas bottom drawer put through coffee grinder and sprinkled in the back carriage of the last train to...hang on. Its music for your ears, made with Baritone Sax, Bass Clarinet and Percussion by 3 musicians who have come together to express their shared love of silly grooves, music concrete and cutting edge other worldly sounds. 
You can hear Sludge Party's music at, or see what they're up to by following them on facebook, at

Line up:
Bass clarinet: Aviva Endean

Lo-Res (10:00pm)

Lo-Res is the primary creative outlet of Flautist Belinda Woods, an ensemble that accompanied and supported Belinda’s doctoral research into her artistic identity as an improviser and composer. Belinda’s music is “lyrical, reflective, and impulsive” (, bringing together diverse and numerous compositional elements ranging from free improvisation to highly intricate structural forms. The compositional framework at play in Lo-Res features an interweaving of contrapuntal melodic lines underscored by driving rhythms and dirty grooves, generating a sound that is unique and distinctive. Whilst featuring the compositional output of one individual, Lo-Res celebrates the talents and distinctive sounds of all six members of the ensemble, embracing the diverse musical characteristics and styles of each member. The strength of the ensemble lies in a compositional and structural foundation that provides unity, direction and a creative springboard for individual expression. 

This performance will take place on land belonging to Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We would like to pay our respects to elders past and present. 

Tickets are available online or on the door for $10. 

Music from 8:30pm.
