Resonance Art Music at Kickarts

Resonance Art Music at Kickarts
Friday 25, August 2017
On Thursdays in 2017 I could be found playing the exhibitions at the Kickarts Gallery, Centre of Contemporary Arts, Cairns. After playing over a hundred artworks, each one was still different, and all fascinating, surprising journeys. I was joined by singer Deline Briscoe, harpist Tracy-Jane Sullivan from England, and Muso Dave Mulligan. Each player and viewer has a different perspective and these add to the dimensionality of the experience. The process of surrendering to the present moment, to engage with that beyond what you can predict is a powerful experience.

UTTERANCE album release

UTTERANCE album release
Friday 02, June 2017
Utterance album is out now! Please look under my 'Recordings' tab to follow links. There is also a video installation which goes along with this album. This is an abstract album, free improvisation, environmental work created in Aotearoa. It's moody and a little spooky, but refined and delicate. Certainly for a harp, banjo and taonga puoro album, this one comes out of left field. I'm proud of this work, made with my beloved mentor Richard Nunns and amazing NZ composer my friend David Long.

Saturday 11, February 2017
The Cairns Harp Connection kicked off with a day long workshop led by Joy Zahner and myself. We had a dozen harpists on the day, from pre-beginners - never touched a harp - to seasoned players. Lots of fun and learning had by all, and everyone playing away by the end of the day. We focused on getting good position and relaxed technique, as well as learning tunes and improvisation. A happy and inspiring day! Connect with the CHC at www.facebook.com/cairnsharpconnection.
