Jachlo (SYD)

“...(Jachlo)'s music ranged from the freest improvising to more ritualised music; from Emery treating his bass as a percussion instrument (at one point sounding like the metallophones of a gamelan ensemble), to extracting the most diaphanous harmonics, while Kim is the first percussionist I've heard forge an approach drawing on the innovations of Australia's master-drummer, Simon Barker." John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

Chloe Kim (drums) and Jacques Emery (bass) are current jazz performance students from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. They discovered their common interest in drumming music as well as the jazz-influenced experimental improvisations and started playing together from 2016. Specifically influenced by the Conservatorium lecturer Simon Barker’s Quintuplet and Septuplet studies, a drummer Greg Sheehan’s Number Diamond system and the traditional rhythms from various cultures (such as Korean traditional rhythms),
their work focuses on developing knowledge in diverse rhythmic dialogues and using those shared language in any improvising/musical settings.
