Tuesday, May 26th @ the Make It Up Club

The final night in our series of special events for May is a celebration of wooden woodwinds. Featuring some of Melbourne’s most daring and adventurous improvisers, expect to expand your ears and eyes with the sonic possibilities of this humble, instrumental family. Often dismissed as the sonic wallflower of the Orchestra, woodwinds have nevertheless remained the backbone of Classical Symphonic timbre because of their organic resonance and adaptability in complimenting the varied sound-worlds of the other orchestral sections. In the hands of these performers, the richness and flexibility of the genus will smack you in the brain, with a series of solos, duos, trios and other confabulations, where extended technique and improv virtuosity will reign.
