MJC Presents: Stephen Byth Octet

Returning from three years studying and living abroad in Boston, USA, saxophonist and composer Stephen Byth brings together a group of seven of his favourite Australian musicians to play music from his upcoming album, ‘Reparations.’

Ranging from sweeping orchestral soundscapes to explosive dynamic peaks, this album draws inspiration from influences ranging from John Coltrane to Béla Bartók to Andrea Keller. Depicting musical narratives in an Australian context, ‘Reparations’ explores themes such as identity, landscape, time and place, as well as the navigation of complex social dynamics.

This performance will feature Niran Dasika (trumpet), Josh Kelly (alto saxophone), Stephen Byth (tenor), James Macaulay (trombone), Julien Wilson (clarinet and bass clarinet), Kade Brown (piano), Sam Anning (double bass) and Angus Mason (drums).
