MJC Presents: Nat Bartsch's Lullaby Project & Melville/Frater/Macdonald
In 2017 Nat Bartsch released a solo album of lullabies on ABC Classics that blends post-classicism and improvisation. Influenced by music therapy research, the project is designed to send babies to sleep - but also, more importantly, to be enjoyed by their parents. Bartsch now returns her work to a jazz context, performing the pieces with various artists with a focus on the musical parameters of simplicity, repetition and lyricism. For this concert she will be joined by Robbie Melville (guitar & loops), Zoe Fräter (electric bass) and Dan Macdonald (drums).
Robbie Melville (guitar), Zoe Fräter (bass) and Dan Macdonald (drums) usually perform together as the rhythm section of Melville’s quintet cleverhorse. As a trio, they explore the cleverhorse catalogue, which stretches back over a 15 year period, placing as much emphasis on group conversation and sonic texture as they do on melodic and rhythmic development. The result is a body of work that contrasts the melodic and cinematic with the frenetic and quirky.
