About the Event


"‘Down  by the Riverside’ is an episodic journey that tracks and attempts to  make meaning of my musical experiences. It explores influences and  sources of inspiration I have found, and my attempts to incorporate  these into my playing and life, representing them as musical spheres of  influence, which I like to think of as musical bubbles In this concert there are three musical bubbles featured:

1. Creekside Creekside  details my attempt to recapture the magic of the original source of my  musical inspiration, something which has been difficult for me. (Music  by Sebastian Pini.)

2. Erster Verlust This  episode reflects on the times in my life where I have learnt to use  music as an expressive device, particularly moments which are too  intense and painful to voice. (Music by Stephen Newton.)

3. A Relentless and Discordant Flow  This  final episode represents the current struggles within my own musical  bubble and the impossibility of incorporating the many styles of  expression and thought that I want to represent musically. (Music by  Sebastian Pini.)

Participating  in the FABLE ARTS SOLOS series has presented an unusual and honestly  confronting opportunity to stretch myself and try new things. It has  made me think more about the meaning of what I do and the many  under-utilised pathways for personal expression.

I am honoured to be able to participate in an art form that allows for intimate and impactful expression on such a large scale."
