A collaborative performance
incorporating music and moving image.
To the Surface is a collaborative performance incorporating projections of Australian artist, Tim Maguire’s video works, and improvised jazz from London-based pianist Dorian Ford, Sydney’s Hamish Stuart (drums) and Hobart-based Nick Haywood on double bass.
This is an Australian premiere performance by these four internationally-renowned artists.
“The saturated, iridescent hues and subverted colouration that form Tim Maguire’s latest body of video works and photographic light-boxes draws our attention not only to the complexities and subtleties of refraction but the process by which colours are derived in art. Capturing the play of water and light, Maguire’s striking works consist of film takes of water, which twist and merge to form striking, alien nests of colour.”
– The Age, Melbourne.
“Incandescent piano’ The Guardian ‘The wide ranging, imaginative and melodic playing of Dorian Ford’ The Vortex ‘The proof is in the playing and Ford has come up with the goods here.’Jazzwise ‘It is gratifying to see a pianist of Dorian’s calibre present the heart and soul of the music so eloquently and so authentically.”
– Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club
“For all his aptitude, accomplishment and love for the instrument, Hamish Stuart is always playing the music rather than the drums. Long may I look at a concert bill and have my eyes light up when I see Hamish Stuart’s name.”
– John Shand, music critic for The Sydney Morning Herald and author of Jazz.”
