Longtime friends and musical collaborators Josh Kelly (saxophone) and Joel Trigg (piano) team up for the first time as a duo, performing their original music. They have performed with each other for years in various projects involving free improvisation, hiphop experiments and ensemble jazz music, but this will be the first time they take to the stage to perform in the stripped back context of duo. Their music reflects their wide array of influences from contemporary music and jazz worlds, while they search for an individual and Australian identity in their expression. The direct connection made available through performance in a duo will showcase the close-knit musical relationship between the two performers, meanwhile showcasing a lyrical, expressive and varied output of music, rooted in contemporary music with a firm emphasis on improvisation as creative expression.
