Way Out West
Way Out West’s sound has been described as “utterly unique” and has earned the band a loyal local following as well as invitations to play some of the largest music festivals and venues in the world in countries including, Korea, Japan, Chile, Norway, England, Italy and Canada.
Led by Peter Knight, Way Out West’s intriguing line-up features the Sydney based koto virtuoso Satsuki Odamura, and builds on the band’s long history of integrating Asian instrumentation and approaches in a contemporary setting that infuses these influences with irresistible West African influenced grooves and jazz inflected melodies.
In addition to Peter and Satsuki, Way Out West’s line-up for this collaboration features long-time Way Out West members, Ray Pereira (percussion) and Howard Cairns (bass and button accordion), along with the exquisite talents of guitarist Lucas Michailidis playing bottleneck and acoustic guitars, and drummer James McLean.
The Adam Page Ensemble
The Adam Page Ensemble (TAPE) is the newest artistic venture of multi-award winning musician and composer Adam Page. TAPE sees Page taking a side step from the performing limelight and into a composer/conductor role while handing over the music to the interpretation of his wondrous, genre-diverse ensemble members. This concert will be the world premiere of both the ensemble and the song cycle in which they will perform entitled ‘Broadcast’ – signifying modern humanity’s addiction to the Internet and ‘devices’ and its compulsion to broadcast their own lives while voyeuristically looking in on the lives of others.
TAPE are: Adam Page, Julian Ferarretto, Emily Tulloch, Rachel Johnston, Lyndon Gray, Dean Newcomb, Thomas Pulford, Vashti Tyrell, Jackie Newcomb, Sam Cagney, Jarrad Payne and Fleur Green.
Many thanks are due to Arts South Australia for their generous support of the creation of TAPE and ‘Broadcast’.
