Armadale Concert Insights April 26 2016
Listeners at our last Armadale concert were immersed in10 compositions reflecting upon
Mediterranean culture in a contemporary manner. I consider jazz a form of creative expression. We can feed into this form of expression any style of music. In my case, I feed into it flamenco and my own compositions. These compositions are a consequence of having existed as an Australian immigrant in Spain for 40 years. Listeners at our Armadale Concert, in Melbourne, heard a constant balance between emotional tension and release. A constant flow of emotions, tossed around and refreshed as if carried by a river .
During most of the Armadale Concert concert I performed on solo guitar. On some pieces, where I needed the melodic line to become more independent, Tamara accompanied me on bass, adding depth and contrast to the existing compositions. Some listeners have asked why I do not incorporate more percussion into my live performances.
I believe there really is no need of percussion to get your feet tapping as the Spanish guitar, the nylon string guitar, if played with precision will get your feet moving. The Spanish guitar does not have a sustained sound and percussion has to become an independent melodic line to match the explosive dynamics of the nylon string guitar.
