Music at Mona

David is the only person who reads this bit of the website. Hi David.

If the weather is good, the music is outside on the lawns or in Warren Mason’s Tin Camp Studio. If it's crap, it's inside the Ether building nearby. In the museum, you might find musicians-in-residence Emily Sanzaro and Danny Healy performing live in their gallery studios each day.

 

Friday 2 December

Who? When? Where?
Linzee Arnold 12–2pm Mona Lawns
Jazz maestro. Counter-cultural comic book legend. Go Linzee, go.
N.E.W 2–4pm Mona Lawns
Synth wizardry with nods to the Berlin school of electronica (naturally), and the finger-licking banjo-plucking Moog albums of the seventies.

 

Saturday 3 December

Who? When? Where?
Thus Far... 12–2pm Mona Lawns
Acid jazz, funk and blues from all across the globe. Dance your pants off.
Jamie Pregnell Trio 2–4pm Mona Lawns
Easy rollin' jazz on the JPT, which sounds like a highway but is actually a band.

 

Sunday 4 December

Who? When? Where?
Glitchcraft 12–2pm Mona Lawns
They call it 'party prog'—elements of rock, metal, jazz and punk, blended.
Christian Patey 2–4pm Mona Lawns
Fun, high energy alternative electro-pop. Christian has also landed a vocal sample on a Rae Sremmurd album, which is pretty dope.

 

Monday 5 December

Who? When? Where?
Sick Visor 12–2pm Mona Lawns
Your new favourite feel-alright bouncy garage-pop rock band, running on the fumes of mindless childhood joy.
ProjeKt Camus 2–4pm Mona Lawns
Inspired by the synthpop of the late seventies, and built on a combination of beats, analogue synths and vocoder-y goodness.

 

Friday 9 December

Who? When? Where?
Saree Salter 12–2pm Mona Lawns
Sublime singer-songwriter-y guitar melancholia from an emerging talent straight off the east coast of Tassie.
GiANNi 2–4pm Mona Lawns
Classical performance meets experimental improv, with some forays towards electronica. Flute, vox, piano, effects.

 

Saturday 10 December

Who? When? Where?
Scotty And The Jazz Ninjas 12–2pm Mona Lawns
Can Scotty lead an ensemble playing their own arrangements of jazz standards? Shuriken.
Matthieu Mazué & Andrew Saragossi 2–4pm Mona Lawns
An award-winning pianist and a 'chameleon with a wind instrument' (Andrew, on sax) join improv-forces for your listening pleasure.

 

Sunday 11 December

Who? When? Where?
Gold Pen 12–2pm Mona Lawns
Funky-ass jazz-pop with electric keys, a horn section, and a sprinkling of gospel. Also prone to 'going cosmic', which sounds pretty rad.
Hinsby 2–4pm Mona Lawns
Electronic meanderings and beats influenced by 'the regal orographic land formations of kunanyi and its surroundings', plus psychiatry and the effect of music on mental health.

 

Monday 12 December

Who? When? Where?
Danny Healy Trio 12–2pm Mona Lawns
Jazz standards from the twenties to the sixties.
Milan Ackerman 2–4pm Mona Lawns
Classical instrumental guitar, plus a loop pedal. Plus a loop pedal.

 

Friday 16 December

Who? When? Where?
RABBIT 12–2pm Mona Lawns
Fast rock and roll straight out of a gravel pit at night. Like hot chips and gravy in a soft white buttered roll, apparently.
Justin Ashworth 2–4pm Mona Lawns
Electronic combinations of generative systems and ambient sounds, plus melodic minimalism, drone and 'extreme noise'.
