We’re so excited to be performing with Spike Mason for the launch of his new CD, ‘FLYING’ next Friday night. This is Spike’s 8th album in his “10 albums in 10 years” project. FLYING is a large-scale original composition which combines the broad sound palette of a classical ensemble with free melodic improvisation. Check out this sneak preview.
And here’s a few more details about the event and venue.
- Spike Mason and Sirius Chamber Ensemble will perform all of the music from the album.
- Ensemble musicians: Ian Sykes (clarinet), Melissa Coleman (flute), Alex Fontaine (oboe), Alison Evans (bassoon), Gareth Lewis (trombone), Vanessa Tammetta (violin), Luke Spicer (viola), Steve Meyer (cello) and Benjamin Burton (piano).
- The Tasmanian writer Di Adams will read her poem FLYING that inspired the music on this album, and
- There will be a Q and A with Spike about the music he composed for the album.
