Melbourne Concerts 2016 insights
It has been a very busy month of jazz and flamenco guitar performances here in Melbourne. One of my favourite concerts was staged at the National Art Gallery of Victoria last week. It was a private corporate event for the Spanish company called Acciona.
I would like to praise the acoustics of the room I performed in. The room reverb had an audible delay of less than a second. The natural room reflections were brilliant and sweet. It was like hearing a sweeter echo of ones self. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed, so much, the acoustics of a performance venue.
I tend to change the way I interpret, flamenco and jazz guitar when notes are sustained through natural reverb. The Spanish guitar lacks lyrical sustain as a human voice would have. The guitar cannot hold a note for long, and long reverbs, with pre delay, can enhance its lyrical character.
NAB corporate event Melbourne Concerts insights
Also last week, the NAB held a corporate event for its employees at 500 Bourke street. It was a real pleasure to play flamenco and jazz guitar, for a crowd that was seeking to cool off after a hard weeks work. I tend to play in a creative manner at all events and in a way not different to how I would play at my concerts. The crowd loved the personal touch and enjoyed my music with which I try to portray emotions. Thank you all for such a wonderful evening.
Last concert in August
There is one more concert left before I head off to Spain next week. The concert will be held this coming Friday, August 26, at 7 pm at the Armadale Uniting Church. Please take a peak at all the wonderful Melbourne concert reviews the audience left behind at previous concerts.
