MJC Presents: Spirograph Studies

Spirograph Studies have leapt onto the Australian music scene with their detailed, textural approach to playing improvised music. They shamelessly steal sonic palettes from all areas to build their cinematic sound.

Inextricably post-rock and post-jazz, this collaborative group features Luke Howard (piano), Fran Swinn (guitar) and James McLean (drums) – this strong collection of music-makers each bring their unique voice to the stage as part a united front led by Tamara Murphy.

Bassist Murphy has been developing her unique sound through her playing and song-writing for many years now. She was awarded the inaugural PBS Young Elder of Jazz Commission for the creation and presentation of a new work: Big Creatures & Little Creatures. She ran her group, Murphy’s Law, for 14 years and was also a member of the Keller-Murphy-Browne co-operative. Her albums have been nominated for The Age Genre Awards, AIR awards and The Bell Awards.

Spirograph Studies performed at the 2017 Melbourne International Jazz Festival at the M.R.C. as support for Bill Frisell.
