Harry Mitchell, Ben Vanderwal, Ben Witt and Karl Florisson join forces with Melbourne based saxophonist Flora Carbo to present two sets of original music. Come down to hear the world premiere of this project.
Flora Carbo is a saxophonist, composer and music leader from Naarm (Melbourne, Australia). Her unique practice creates novel musical environments that connect people through improvisation, composition and conceptual works, led by her explorations into the vocal qualities of the alto saxophone.
Her work traverses settings, methods and scales, with works devised for major festival stages at Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Canberra International Music Festival, Phoenix Central Park’s Strata Festival, Amersfoort Jazz Festival, and alongside luminaries of Australian jazz and improvised music like Barney McAll and Andrea Keller. Her creativity grounded in a constant flow of collaboration amongst a tight-knit generation of leading young Australian artists in Naarm, with regular projects and small gigs for new ideas alongside uncategorizable original musicians like Helen Svoboda, Niran Dasika, Iran Sanadzadeh, Eitan Ritz, her brother Theo Carbo, and many others.
