All In Presents: Lijuka & Quadrifid
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.
Lijuka are a Melbourne based trio whose unique sound swings from ambient drone based musings to jazz-infused grooves. This saxophone/drums/guitar combo draws on acoustic and electronic elements, such as live-looping and real-time sound manipulation, to create a rich aural landscape. Heavily influenced by their studies in contemporary jazz, improvisation, ambient music, soundscapes and intercultural disciplines, their music aims to conjure vivid imagery in the mind of the listener. In December 2017, Lijuka were awarded the inaugural Recording Prize for their debut set at The JazzLab as part of the Melbourne Women's International Jazz Festival. 2018 saw the trio begin collaboration with visual artists culminating in a successful performance of their original audio-visual show Macro/microcosm as part of the 2018 Melbourne Fringe Festival. Lijuka closed the year with the release of their debut single ‘Registaan’.
With influences spanning Latin and Balkan rhythms to the sounds of the local scene, Quadrifid combine the individuality of each instrument to create a unique musical conversation. Playing a blend of jazz and groove music in a 'chordless' instrumentation, they create lush harmonies between the trombone, saxophone and double bass, gelled together by the rhythmic drive of the drums.
Quadrifid are Lauren Mullarvey (Tenor Saxophone and Clarinet), Ellie Lamb (Trombone), Elise Winterflood (Double Bass) and Alexandra Roper (Drum Kit).
