Old

Thanks to everyone who came out to see us and our desert soundscapes at Ben Mastwyk's launch last week. You can pick up or stream Ben's new album at all good suppliers.

The next Experiment gig will be Thursday June 14th at The Old Bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne. We'll be supporting our friends The Good Minus as they launch their new single 'Wonderful'. Also playing will be one of our musical heroes, Mr J. Walker of Machine Translations. The cover's only $10 and it's gonna be a night of pretty excellent music. Come along and smell that fresh desert breeze.

Minus/Agadez

I've just recently received a proper recording of the Flinders Quartet performing my piece Agadez, which is the second part of my first String Quartet that was written last year. It's from the live concert at The Docklands, and they do a really wonderful job of it; it was a privilege to work with such wonderful musicians. I hope you enjoy listening to it here:

If you wanted to watch the full concert, it's up online here too. It really was a great event.

The Experiment and I have a show coming up next week on Thursday April 19th at The Retreat Hotel in Brunswick. Joining us will be fellow sonic voyeurs The Good Minus. It's free, and the sounds takes you somewhere pubic transport never could.

All's well in CP Experiment land. We've been working on some new tunes, and also thinking about recording. However, we are also well aware that thinking about recording and actual recording are not the same thing. It's a start, though.

In the meantime, our next gig will be on Thursday April 19th at The Retreat Hotel with support from The Good Minus. Come along to that one and taste the Maj7 chords.

Things keep rolling on. We've got more shows in the near future, and we've been working on new tunes too.

Saturday February 3rd @ The Union Hotel, Brunswick. Two sets from 9:00pm.
Saturday February 17th @ Coburg RSL Family and Members Day. Two sets from 4:30pm.
Saturday February 17th @ Drunken Poet, North Melbourne. Two sets from 9:00pm.
Saturday March 3rd @ The Labour in Vain, Fitzroy. Two sets from 8:00pm.

Looks like we love playing two sets. It means more music, so what's not to love?

What a year 2017 has been. We've played shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and numerous shows in our hometown of Melbourne too. I've also had one of my pieces for string quartet performed by one of Australia's finest string quartets, and written a bunch more pieces of chamber music that will be performed in the new year. It's been great. Sincere thanks to everyone who's bought, downloaded, or streamed our music, came to our gigs, or said nice things about us.

We'll be back in the new year with new music, more gigs, and will be trying to get out and about around the country again too. Our first show of the year is Sunday January 7th at The Standard in Fitzroy. 

As a holiday gift to you all, here's a complete version of one of our most recent gigs in Melbourne for you to listen to, and download if you like. It's complete with crowd noise, an out-of tune guitar at one point (that'll teach me to try and bend the strings too far whilst using a capo), and our special guest Ryan Brewer on keyboards. Hope you enjoy it.
