Ellen Kirkwood's "Underwards" + Rebel Scum
- Date: Tuesday, 13 April 2021, 7pm
- Venue: Lazybones Lounge — 294 Marrickville Road, (enter via Illawarra Rd), Marrickville, NSW
UNDERWARDS: Underwards is a direction, but where does it take us? Underground? Underwater? Beneath our consciousness? Maybe all of the above?
Award-winning trumpeter and composer Ellen Kirkwood leads her brand-new quartet of talented locals, presenting nature-inspired and climate change-reactive works which exemplify her signature characterful and moody compositional style. She has recruited the vibrant and unique talents of Yutaro Okuda on guitar (Arcing Wires, Yutaro Okuda Quintet), Nick Henderson on bass and synths (Arcing Wires, Emily-Rose and the Wild Things) and Alex Inman-Hislop (Zela Margossian Quintet, Steve Barry’s Blueprints Trio) to bring her music to life.
Throughout this 1-hour set, Kirkwood’s evocative composition combines with eclectic group and solo improvisations, to fuel the imagination with imagery, feeling and a healthy dose of weird. The bulk of this set was written as part of her recent Honours project on climate activism through emotive music, with a focus on the work and philosophies of avant-garde composer-performer Meredith Monk.
"Ellen Kirkwood's music has that rare quality that characterises the music of the best composers: A truly unique, original voice that leaves you dying to hear the next piece." - Dr Sandy Evans, OAM
