space is the place news

Join us in The Space, an exciting new venue located within the Australian Institute of Music for four intimate showcases of exquisite jazz. Presented by the Australian Institute of Music and the Sydney Improvised Music Association, these special shows feature wildly talented artists with a unique sound. Tickets are on sale for the below shows on Monday 17th May.

Jazz is like a void, patiently waiting for a brave musician to come and take hold of space and time.

PHIL SLATER QUINTET

Date: Monday 31st May Time: 7:30pm (Doors); 8:00pm (Concert)

Phil Slater is a trumpeter and composer who resides on the stunning coast of Illawarra. Surrounded by nature, with the calming scent of the ocean only a breeze away – Phil’s music is heavily influenced by one of Australia’s many terrestrial paradises.

As a composer and bandleader, Slater’s improvisations are open and textural with melodic and minimalist narratives that can only be attained through his distinctly unique vocabulary.

elana stone duo

ELANA STONE DUO

Date: Monday 21st June Time: 7:30pm (Doors); 8:00pm (Concert)

Singer/songwriter Elana Stone is an ARIA Award-winning vocalist and songwriter whose style combines instrumental invention with eccentricity, and inclines to write pop that is by turns exultant or introspective. If Ella Fitzgerald met Dirty Projectors and Joni Mitchell, you’d have an idea of how Elana might sound, but you’d be missing the country and folk influences too!

Expect a deep dive into her catalogue with an inventive attitude to arrangements, played by two of Australia’s most accomplished musicians.

BUNGARRIBEE

Date: Monday 12th July Time: 7:30pm (Doors); 8:00pm (Concert)

An exotic blend of world, jazz and classical music, Gary Daley travelled down Bungarribee Road in Sydney’s outer western suburbs to his earliest music lessons … and there the journey unfolded.

Named after the Indigenous word for ‘idyllic meeting place’, Bungarribee is an imaginative re-working of the classic jazz quartet. Paul Cutlan’s masterful bass clarinet is set against an exotic rhythm section featuring accordion, cello and Beier’s south Indian hand percussion, bells and rhythmic knick-knacks.

Exquisite contemporary Jazz pianist Greg Coffin and his trio have made a name for themselves creating sublime original music with unparalleled world of beauty and power for the last decade.

One of the most distinctive voices in contemporary Jazz today, Greg is held in high regard by his peers, and this night will be an extraordinary opportunity to witness his ability to fabricate musical narratives from the individual sensitivities of his fellow players.
