Ashes – debut/CD Launch
Sun 30 April @ 7:30 pm$18 – $25
Ashes is a dynamic band that has cultivated a distinct and analogous language over the past years. This group brings to life sketches of music written by trumpeter Ashley Ballat who’s eclectic musical aesthetic amalgamates music from the incredible Australian Jazz scene, ECM records, American Free Jazz, Ambient, Folk and hint of Metal.
Together the band coalesce acoustic sounds with electronics to create thick soundscapes full of texture, colour and mood. Moving between lamenting melodies, dense fiery fury and sparse, delicately restrained improvisation, this band’s sensitivity is something special. Featuring Ashley Ballat (trumpet and FX), Dan Waddingham (guitar), Monty Shnier (double bass), Ollie Cox (percussion and Electronics), and Maddison Carter (drums).
