Thanks to everyone who came out to our Brisbane shows. Boy, we had a great time, and great to play to a sell-out crowd at The Junk Bar, and for such friendly people. We love you guys, and we’ll be back next year for sure.

The next Experiment show will be in Melbourne on Sunday November 18th, when we barrel into another two sets at one of our favourite venues, The Standard in Fitzroy.

We’ve got something pretty exciting planned for the end of the year too - a special ‘double band’ gig with Brisbane group Trichotomy at Jazzlab in Brunswick on Friday December 14th. They’ll play a short set, we’ll play a short set, then we’ll both play a set together. That’s right, two bands on the one stage. It’ll be wild. Details will be announced soon, and this will be a ticketed show, so stay tuned.

In October, the CP Experiment will be heading up to Brisbane, QLD, to play a ticketed show at The Junk Bar in Ashgrove. It'll be our only headlining show in Brisbane for the year, so I hope you can make it. Support is from Fraser and Stone, and it's all happening on Saturday October 20th. Get your tickets here at oztix.


Before we do that though, we'll also be hitting the road for some shows with Jackie Marshall to support her album launch, and here are those dates:

Friday September 21st - The Spotted Mallard, Brunswick, Melbourne VIC.
Thursday October 4th - Leadbelly, Newtown, Sydney, NSW.
Friday October 5th - The Junkyard, Maitland, NSW.
Saturday October 6th - Smith's Alternative, Canberra, ACT.


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.

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.
