Barney Mcall - Bird's Basement
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.

"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
