At short notice .. a ONE-OFF Club Inégales night on Saturday 4th June!

Our friends in the Australian Art Orchestra are passing through town on their way to Berlin, and we thought it would be great for you to hear their special new project, ‘Hand to Earth’ and then bring them together with members of The Third Orchestra. Soon after the orchestra’s rebirth at Grand Junction on 5th May. I know many of you were there, thank you, we had a very special, sold-out night.

So at Club Inégales on 4th June we present!

PART I Hand to Earth

Australian Arts Orchestra

The sophisticated and diverse sounds of the AAO, Australia leading, diverse ground-breaking ensemble.

‘Hand to Earth developed during an Australia Art Orchestra residency in the remote highlands of Tasmania. Yolgnu songman, Daniel Wilfred, and Korean vocalist, Sunny Kim, formed an effortless rapport that spans continents and cultures and yet expresses a deeply human commonality.Their vocal approaches are melded into the electronic atmospheres created by trumpeter and composer, Peter Knight, who draws on the minimalism of Brian Eno and Jon Hassell to create a bed for these beautifully contrasting voices.

Daniel sings in language, and is the keeper of Yolgnu manikay (songs) from North East Arnhem Land that can be traced back for over 40,000 years. His is the oldest continuously practised music tradition in the world Sunny sings in English and Korean, and intones wordless gestures that invoke raw elemental forces.Together they sing of the stars, of fire, and of the cooling rain, against the sounds of Peter Knight’s trumpet and electronic crackles’. The performance also features David Wilfred (Ritharrnu man and djunggayi) and Aviva Endean (clarinettist).

PART II Between two waves of the sea
