Aaron McCoullough Quartet with Matt Hoyne – Debut
Sun 15th October, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm$15 - $20
This performance will see new works composed by Aaron McCoullough performed by an ensemble featuring: Tom Noonan (saxophone), James Bowers (piano), Marty Holoubek (bass), and special guest Matt Hoyne (guitar).
The construct of ‘place’ has inspired the writing process for these newly composed works, with each piece representing a distinctive coastal point of the Illawarra region in NSW.
Originally from Wollongong, NSW, McCoullough has been an active participant of the Melbourne improvised music scene, since completing his undergraduate degree at the VCA in 2006. This engagement within the improvised community has enabled McCoullough to develop strong musical relationships with many leading improvisers resulting in numerous recordings and festival appearances nationally and internationally.
The quartet format has been the central focus of McCoullough’s creative musical outlet within recent times, and is represented by McCoullough’s upcoming-recorded release that features the works showcased at this performance.
The decision to expand to a quintet for this performance, however, has been made to establish a new set of characteristics within ensemble engagement.
