Soundscapes is a monthly music night showcasing acts somewhere in the alternative / experimental / sound art / other / uncategorised zones. This month is guest-curated by HellosQuare recordings.
A Sydney based trio featuring Linus Foley (piano, synths), Max Alduca (electric + double bass) and Luke Keanan-Brown (drums, percussion, computer), Moving Paths have developed an distinctive ensemble sound, weaving elements of jazz, minimalism and folk music into an electro-acoustic listening experience. The trio released the EP "dusk" in 2017 and will be recording their debut album with Shoeb Ahmad and Jonathan Boulet later this year.
Irish-born drummer Bonnie Stewart is a leading light on Sydney's improvised music scene and holding her own with the indie-folk project Bonniesongs. She plays drums like a singer, she composes like a drummer, she leads her projects with the song as the focus. For Soundscapes, she will be performing a solo set using drums, percussion and voice.
BEN MARSTON & HUGH BARRETT
Coming together in early 2017, Ben Marston (trumpet, laptop) and Hugh Barrett (piano, Rhodes) have been exploring the live remix process in an improvised setting. Since then, they have formed a solid duo to create gentle textural improvisations, focusing on the softer side of both instruments. Their debut album "Unfound Places" will be released mid-year by Sydney label Art As Catharsis.
