Get your ‘Septober Energy’ this December with WAYJO & Keith Tippett

Widely recognised as one of the most distinctive and radical pioneers in contemporary jazz and improvised music, UK-based free jazz pianist, innovator and composer Keith Tippett first gained prominence in London in the 1960s with his Sextet and ground-breaking 50-piece ensemble, Centipede.

Today, with over 40 years of performance, composition, recordings, broadcasts, film scores, and youth education projects behind him, Tippett brings a wealth of experience to this West Australian residency.

Tippett comes together with the Western Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO), members of TURA’s iMprov Program, and the especially selected Mujician Mosaic band in a first-ever Australian Residency.

Taking shape from dedicated rehearsals with both WAYJO and Mujician Mosaic, the concert will allow for structured playing, reworkings, and totally free improvisatory performances; showcasing collaborating artists as ensemble members and soloists.

Also included in the Mujician Mosaic performance line-up is a newly created un-scored, free-form piece with the ensemble from TURA’s iMprov Program, which will be created during their dedicated rehearsal time with Tippett.
