Inside Outside 1 2 3 Feb 7 2017
Another beautiful video clip from last Tuesday at the Brunswick Green, masterfully filmed and edited by Rick Avetz .
The night started with some evocative work from Dan, Carlo and myself, Elnaz moving and singing Persian traditional songs, Gillian, Dario, Simon Starr on bass and trumpet, and joined by Nathan Soh on alto sax for a superbly timed entry at the climax to the piece. By the second set we had grown to include a third double bassist (Myriander Fitzgerald), extra percussion from George El Azar (darbuka) and Joseph (cajon), special guest spoken word artist Piers Gooding riffing on themes of flight and Melbourne in summer, and Persian folk singing from Tabasom. At one point, fragments of Gershwin filtered through the delicate atonal textures.
Thanks to everyone for your extraordinary empathy and musicality. There were too many memorable moments to catch on one short clip, but here are a few.
Next gig is Feb 21, 830-11pm Brunswick Green, 313 Sydney Rd Brunswick
