All In Presents: Hannah McKittrick Sextet Album Launch // BK:MW
All In is a new organisation with the goal of creating a more inclusive environment for musicians and audience members in the Melbourne jazz scene.
The Hannah McKittrick Sextet was formed as a means to explore new works by vocalist and composer Hannah McKittrick, inspired by her research into 20th century minimalism and the execution and implications of ostinato as part of her Honours degree. The sextet consists of Max Sloarch (tenor saxophone), Nat Bartsch (piano), Theo Carbo (guitar), Noah Hutchinson (electric bass/synth) and Ollie Cox (drums), and this new music aims to encapsulate what is slippery and watery through multi-voiced composition for multiple parts.
BK : MW
Expanding on over half a decade of collaboration in various projects, vocalist Bianca Kyriacou and guitarist Maximilian West explore the intimacy of composing, improvising and performing as a duo. Drawing from styles that allow for an expression of softness, BK : MW aim to create music that makes the listener feel known and included in the closeness of the duo.
In this unique performance, Bianca and Maximilian are joined by pianist Selene Messinis and drummer Lewis Pierre, exploring the BK : MW material in quartet form.
