Project Description

Paul Grabowsky’s Gravity Project (6 Australian and 4 Japanese musicians) has been invited to perform an 11-day tour in Tokyo, Yokohama and Iwate in 2018. Artistically, the overarching aim for this artistic research project is to create and disseminate a transcultural musical dialogue through a carefully structured collaboration involving Australian and Japanese improvising musicians in both a traditional and modern context. This project has financial and administrative support from the Australian Embassy Japan and Monash University, a DFAT cultural grant, and forms an integral part of DFAT's Focus Country Program for 2018. The performance celebrates the collaborative nature of music, and showcases master musicians from the Japanese, alongside some of Australia's finest contemporary improvisers.
