‘Ricochet’ is a collaborative project formed by Joshua Kelly, Joel Trigg, Oscar Neyland and Zeke Ruckman in 2013.
The quartet investigates the concept of performance-based composition, where music is constructed and arranged in the context of a live performance. Compositional elements such as rhythmic cycles, functional harmony, atonality and abstractionism are used to blend the group’s influences (contemporary minimalism, free jazz, hip hop, rock and other world folk musics) into a cohesive musical experience. The resulting performance pieces are unrepeatable, a unique product of the time and place in which they are made.
Michael Gordon – saxophone
Ken Allars – trumpet
Tom Wade – bass
Finn Ryan – drums

Thursday 6th: Shape Shift at Bar Oussou (653 Sydney Rd. Brunswick)
Quantum Milkshake + Adam & Maria – “SHAPE SHIFT”
This particular Thursday night is the night where things truly become out of the ordinary.
Bushes rustle, dogs start barking and suddenly, everything you have come to know your whole life start changing right in front of you. The walls melt and the cat is going inside itself. Your hands are slowly dripping away and you find yourself transforming into something that you could not even imagine.
This is where we come in.
ADAM AND MARIA (8:30) and QUANTUM MILKSHAKE (9:30) are here to help you with your transformation this night as we have (for many centuries tracking down our family line) an exuberant understanding of such changes in ones world through the power of music (oooOOOooo)
We’ll be holding our “Seminar” at Bar Oussuo in Brunswick along Lygon Street.
And I’m sure music will play a part at the “seminar” too. I’m sure.
Good luck fellow humans!
Friday/Saturday/Sunday November at La Mama Theatre (205 Faraday St. Carlton)
Perhaps this story starts from this phrase: “I am the Truth”
A faith that embraces nothing more than the one Living Truth, animating the
hearts of mystics through the ages and across the world. The story of this
performance is based on the 4500-line Iranian epic poem The Conference of
the Birds; its captivating poetic style explores the fundamental nature of truth
(God, wisdom). The birds of the world, each of which holds special significance,
seek out the Simorgh – a mythical Persian bird much like the phoenix. Brook’s
stage adaptation of this 12th-century Persian poem first came on stage in 1979.
