MJC Presents: Antripodean Ensemble (Bruny Island/Tasmania/Melbourne/Sydney) – Live Recording
Sunday, May 15, 2022 @ 8:00 pm
Doors open at 7:30 pm
The Antripodean Collective is an ever-changing group of some of the finest improvising musicians in Australia. The aim of this group is to explore improvised music from every angle and in every form. On this visit from Bruny Island, Scott Tinkler (trumpet) acts as curator, with Erkki Veltheim (violin), Scott McConnachie (alto and soprano sax), Ren Walters (guitars), and Tinkler’s longtime colleague from Sydney; Simon Barker (drums).
They will seek to create situations that extend the comfort zones of each musician in order for them to explore new possibilities. Each configuration creates difference, sparks new dialogue and seeks out the collective spirit. The result is a unique music, unrepeatable, contingent and brilliantly alive.
Tinkler has recently released his first vinyl album, Goose to Goose, a solo project (available on Bandcamp), following several digital duo recordings.
