Formatted Abstract/Summary
Two-hour cross-genre collaborative concert between Topology and jazz trio Misinterprotato.

New collaborative compositions by Australia’s leading new music ensemble Topology, with the vital young improv piano trio Misinterprotato.

While Topology have been forging their own 21st-century take on chamber music, Misinterprotato have been working out their unique interpretation of the classic jazz lineup: the piano trio. The two groups have a big overlap in their musical tastes - it's a natural collaboration.

You'll be treated to some new music specially composed for the combination along with some of the most rhythmically-charged music in each band's repertoire. John Babbage messes with your rhythmic footings in a collection of metrical teases - Difference Engine's machine gets out of control, as do the malfunctioning codes of Millennium Bug. In NRG, Gerry Brophy riffs on a pattern that never quite repeats, permuting its way to climax. Robert Davidson takes JFK's light-hearted banter with General Eisenhower to construct his frenetic grooves, and Jim Chapman looks simultaneously to New York and South Africa. Sean Foran takes a cue from Steve Reich while exploring his own "contemplative yet driving" melodic style.

Robert Davidson was artistic director, curator, composer, bassist and conductor for this event
