Formed as a ‘Composers Orchestra’, this versatile 18-piece musical organism has developed a unique body-of-work with a distinct dynamism and feel. The band’s main focus is on the creation of original work, while nurturing the individual talents and affinities of each member. 

The band explores improvisational structures, texture and color, narratives, complex rhythm and time layering. This has taken their playing to levels of deep listening, intricate ensemble work and virtuoso soloing. And they’re not afraid to take the audience along to zones of great beauty and joyful liberation. Now into it’s fifth year, the Orchestra has truly established itself as a Force Majeure in the Sydney music scene.

For this evening at The Foundry The Kinetic Jazz Orchestra will dust off a different set of irresistible pieces from their Mike Gibbs and Gil Evans repertoire. As well as a selection of gems from their own body-of-work, along with new compositions. 

Composer Miroslav Bukovsky will launch his first piece penned specifically for the orchestra, and composer Roger Dean will expand his series of improvisational pieces he has developed for and with the orchestra with an exciting new work. We welcome the versatile Kevin Hunt to take on the piano parts for this gig.

And the evening wouldn’t be kinetic without some theatrical diversion by Kinetic Jazz’s co-directors Graham & Jepke.
