On the recent occasion of my 50th birthday, Nat Grant put together this radio special on some of my collaborative work for her Let Your Freak Flag Fly show on 3CR. It features collaborative recordings introduced by Ernie Althoff, Chun-Liang Liu, Paul Kidney and Adam Simmons. It was such a surprise (kept secret from me until the day!) to hear this lovely programme, my thanks to Nat and all my inspiring collaborators everywhere.
Here’s my duet with Adam Simmons that was part of Adam’s astounding 100:25:1 project last month.
I’m thrilled to be 1% of the guests invited to be part of Adam Simmons’ extraordinary project 100:25:1, that’s been running just about every night at Conduit Arts throughout November. I’ve gotten along as an audience member to a few of these nights, and it’s been something quite special. To briefly sum up the project, Adam is performing 100 duets throughout the month, drawing on Melbourne musicians from different scenes and musical traditions. These interconnections are being mapped throughout the month, that will eventually form the basis of an online database.
Also performing duets on Thursday night with Adam will be Aviva Endean, Matt Earl, and Simon Lewis.
This will probably be my last Melbourne gig for 2015.
