Tuesday May 21st @ the Make It Up Club

This week at MIUC is another illustration that meaningful engagement with the traditional roots of free jazz and post-classical improv is still applicable, enjoyable, and evolving with every passing year and emerging generation of music makers (and that Melbourne aint a half-bad place to be circa 2013). Petrichor is a term coined by two Australian scientific journalists to describe the aroma that accompanies the first rain after a long warm dry spell; Petrichor wield strings and flute to aurally evoke the sensations that accompany said scent. The great clash of Rhodes occurs, brandished by Joe O'Connor and James Bowers, facing off with hammers, metal prongs and electromagnetic pickups in an ethereal duo of shimmering intensity. And prolific young jazz (etc). masters Marty Holoubek and Brenton Foster make their Make It Up debut to make up what they think a unique section of space-time flow should sound like, expressed via the universal language of bass and keys.
