Presented by FAC and Perth International Arts Festival | Festival Exclusive | Thurs 25 Feb | Doors 7pm | Show 8pm | Front Garden | Seated Outdoor Event | Running Time 85 mins | Tickets $45-$49 from Oztix

FAC’s annual program of intriguing cross-genre collaborations, Soft Soft Loud, returns with a 20th anniversary performance of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s (UK) 1996 work Blood on the Floor, uniquely adapted for this occasion.

Considered one of the most gifted composers of his generation, Turnage was inspired to write this piece after losing his brother to a drug overdose. This now-seminal work harnesses a powerful, high-octane meld of jazz and classical elements.

The audience will experience a big sound as more than 25 musicians take to the stage. Jazz soloists unite with a hand-picked ensemble of dynamic WA musicians for this one-off collaboration, tackling Turnage’s complex yet lucid instrumental textures and artful union of notated and improvised material.

Performed under the stars in the beautiful surrounds of FAC's Front Garden, this elegant and deeply moving masterpiece of genuine contemporary sensibilities will be an unforgettable night for music lovers.

Jazz Soloists:

Ben Vanderwal – Drums
Carl Mackey – Saxophones
Sam Anning – Electric Bass
Carl Morgan – Electric Guitar
Matthew Styles – Soprano Saxophone
Philip Everall – Bass Clarinet
Andrew Nicholson – Flutes
Martin Phillipson – Trumpet
