Barney Mcall - Bird's Basement

2019 July 17 at 6:00pm to 11:00pm

11 Singers Ln, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia

Tour name: Barney McAll: Ashes Reveal Ghosts

The all new music of "Ashes Reveal Ghosts" features some of Australia's most forward thinking musicians. This is a 'dark look at light' with elements of improvisation, techno, electronica, and through composition. This music is transmutative and disruptive with gentle ambient waves, analogue synth pads, sub bass howling and solar eclipse songs. A dream, a journey.

Playing newly composed music written as a result of being alive in 2019 and attempting to stay awake.

"McAll is partial to unleashing surprises himself, whether they be radical dynamic shifts - such as suddenly reducing a solo to the merest trickle of notes against thrumming bass and whispered cymbal chatter - or just finding bewitchingly unexpected turns to take in developing a melody. Masterful." - The Sydney Morning Herald
