BOLT ENSEMBLE (HAMISH UPTON + KARL WILLEBRANT + JAMES HULLICK)

BRIGID BURKE (SOUND ARTIST // CLARINETS)

STEVEN HAGILIASSIS + ROBYN McGRATH + ASTRID MEURER

 

The BOLT Ensemble is a pool of musicians who perform in-house JOLT productions and repertoire. This iteration of the BOLT Ensemble brings together the trio of James Hullick (guitar, piano, voice), Hamish Upton (drums) and Karl Willebrant (bass) exploring avant rock songs. Weaving together rock and sound art, this trio treads the fine line between order and chaos. Expect to be transformed by this ecstatic experience.

Brigid Burke is an Australian composer, performance artist, clarinet soloist, visual artist, video artist and educator whose creative practice explores the use of acoustic sound and technology to enable media performances and installations that are rich in aural and visual nuances. She regularly works across a range of contexts including experimental and improvised music, new chamber music, classical music ensembles and cross-disciplinary collaborations. Brigid’s work seeks to extend beyond the boundaries of her art form and to reimagine the possibilities of sound and visual.

Steven Hagiliassis, Robyn McGrath and Astrid Meurer are sound artists who participate in JOLT’s weekly creative workshops. They will collaborate on an improvisation with guitars and electronics.
