Postcards from the Anthropocene is presented as part of the WinterJazzFest Freedom Jazz Dance series,
In December 2019, Sydney was enveloped in a thick blanket of smoky haze. It was on one of the worst days for bushfire smoke that Sandy Evans, Adam Hulburt and Hamish Stuart recorded this series of improvisations at UNSW reflecting on photographs they had taken during the preceding period of crisis and devastation. This music is offered as a protest against environmental destruction and climate change. The themes Mirage, Embers, Inferno, Skyline, Resistance and Aftermath inform these improvisations and reflections. The results are stunning- traversing ambient soundscapes, spacious grooves, troubled cries, dissonances resolution, surprise, peaceful reflection and even humour. It is not often that a project can genuinely speak of ‘original sounds’ but this is one such project.
