Adam King (Solo) & Spartacus Collective

Improvisational/Creative Music evening.

Adam King (Solo) 8.30pm
"Adam King is a drummer from Melbourne who is known for his cultural dialogue with the music of Bali. This performance will showcase a suite of original improvised compositions which combine symmetrical hand patterning, dynamic rotations and extended techniques inspired by pindekan (Balinese propellers), equally paired with field recordings and philosophical concepts associated with Balinese solo drumming. The outcome is intriguing, often cryptic, meditative and chant-like."

Spartacus Collective 9.30pm
Ronny Ferella drums
Shaun Rammers/Adam Simmons/Gideon Brazil woodwinds
Spartacus Collective is solo drums with notated and improvised woodwind accompaniment. The aim is to "hear"the drumset as a tonal instrument with the ability to adapt and change its tonal structure to compliment the surrounding musical environment.
