Melbourne Live Music Concert Reviews Nov 30 , 2018 Armadale

Melbourne Live Music Concert News 

On Friday, November 30, 2018,  I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with my favourite four musicians from Melbourne: Ben Robertson on Bass, Angel Mellado on Vocals, Gustavo Moreno on Percussion and Valentino  Gikovski on Flamenco Guitar. I must say thank you, also to the wonderful crowd that we had at our show. It was a very exciting night where I premiered new compositions and reinvented old ones. 

Melbourne Live Music Concert Reviews#Jazz Reflections

Ben´s melodic understanding of harmony really makes all my songs just blossom with constant new life, as we trot along the musical timeline. All harmonic cadences resuscitate with a life of their own. As a consequence, all melody I play, just sounds richer and more rhythmic. The final expression is close to ecstasy, at every moment of the performance. 

#Angel Mellado Spanish Tradition

Angel is the master that transports us all to the solemn traditions of Spain , where we immerse in an expression of life that reflects upon the need to survive, thrive and exist with nothing else than good friends, love, and pure enjoyment. We played traditional Caña and Buleria for the 1950´s. When I play with Angel, I feel honoured to travel back in time, and fill the space around us all, with passionate, simple flamenco traditions.

#El Camino

Valentino is another of my favourite guitarists here in Melbourne. We performed only one song called  “el Camino “. I composed this song for two guitars with two distinct melodic lines.  I truly adore this form of playing, as one guitar can play on its own, through the entire song and still sound beautiful, without the need of the other.  However, when both guitars caress each other,  a spacial musical concept is born. This form of composition produces great pleasure, and is an extreme delight to listen to. 

The song “camino” narrates the beauty of human beings,  and also the harshness of our existence. A few years back, I was travelling through the Pyrenees in Catalunya, Spain, next to the small country called  “el Principado de Andorra”.  Thus, I came across a group of hikers from Israel. They were retracing the steps of their grandparents, that had fled nazis via the track called the smugglers route. The Spaniards aided the French Jews in their flee from terror.

#Uplifting Percussion, Motif Development 

On Percussion, I had the pleasure of enjoying Gustavo´s latin and flamenco groove playing. When I write for percussion, I tend to give the instrument a melodic value, where I create a rhythmic motif that has between 8 at 12 beats. This melodic motif serves as their principal long question, where upon answering , the musician develops an extremely melodic and rich percussive array of patterns. 

I then love to layer my guitar on top of this enchanting groove, as I can flow in and out of the harmony and melody, as if I was jumping in and out of the most refreshing pool of water, on a hot summer day.

#The Ideal Acoustic Venue

The venue, I generally select in Melbourne for all my Live music concerts, is the Armadale Uniting Church . This venue allows me to have the ideal sound and stage set up for my music.  There fore, I can deliver, to the audience, the most musical experience, at the lowest cost possible. I must say again, thank you for all those music lovers who attended our Melbourne live music concerts, in such a non traditional venue.

#Live Acoustic Music production

I am looking forward, to recreating our unique musical experience, for all those who  attend our Melbourne live music shows. Music has the power to bring us all together , and with this language we really have the best opportunity to connect to each other ,and enjoy our understanding of life through emotional and thought.  In music, there is very little time think. Only time to feel. In summary I produce a show to recreate  a totally revigorating experience both for all the musicians and also for the audience.

Without an attentive audience, my music would be at a standstill. only through this magical interchange of giving and receiving , will my music come alive and glow with all our needs and passions. 

Join us at our next concerts in Melbourne , Sydney and Illawarra.
