Composed and led by Sandy Evans, RockPoolMirror brings together four of Australia’s leading contemporary improvisers in a musical response to Belinda Webster’s stunning photographs of the Shoalhaven Gorge, NSW.

Sandy, Adrian, Paul and Niko are inventive, passionate, and accomplished improvisers. This performance is a rare opportunity to experience the deep musical bonds they have established through a rich history of collaboration based around the Australian Art Orchestra.

Belinda Webster is best known as the founding director of Tall Poppies records. Her images of rock formations and their reflections in still water at dawn exude a tranquil and peaceful ambience, but also venture into chasms and abysses, at times revealing surreal, lifelike rock warriors in bizarre symmetries of rock and water.

Composed and led by Sandy Evans (OAM), RockPoolMirror brings together six of Australia’s leading contemporary improvisers in a musical response to Belinda Webster’s stunning photographs of the Shoalhaven Gorge, NSW. These images travel an evocative journey, from the tranquility of rock formations reflected in still water at dawn, to the darkness of chasms and abysses, at times even revealing surreal, life-like rock warriors. Photographer Belinda Webster is best known as founding director of Tall Poppies Records. Her narrative gorge images will be projected at this concert, and brought to life by saxophonist and composer Sandy and some of her long-time collaborators. This performance is a rare opportunity to witness the deep musical bonds that these accomplished improvisers have established through their rich history of collaboration.
