Josh Kelly Solo Project @ Lebowskis

Josh Kelly is a young saxophonist and improviser based in Melbourne, originating from South Africa. While studying his Honours at VCA, Josh has started forging a clear creative path in the early stages of his career, mostly involved with the contemporary jazz and improvised music circles of Melbourne. 

Josh's solo saxophone project involves numerous extended technique practices on the saxophone including circular breathing, multiphonics and use of overtones combined with rhythmic groupings. Within this context Josh works with concepts of contrast and narrative, usually starting with a predetermined idea, and allowing it to unfold into new territory informed by the above concepts. 

In addition to this, Josh works with traditional Korean modal music, which for the first time at Lebowskis, he intends to inform his solo performance through incorporation of traditional Korean modes and ornamentation within his solo performance aesthetic.
