36 LIFESTYLE FRIDAY AUGUST 19 2016 CAVE01Z01MA - V1 LIVELIVEAA LIVELIVEliceAA N L Trio finds freedom in ad-lib approach IMPROVISED music in a church setting is on offer in September, thanks to a trio of local musicians inspired by an experience they had at last years Desert festival. Alice Springs-based flute player Markus Kuchenbuch will join percussionist Be Ward and Pin Rada on strings, didgeridoo and a Persian instrument called the ney. They will perform at the Church of the Ascension in Bath St on September 23, the venue inspired by the Music in Churches series which included a sold-out concert by the trio in 2015. Its such a beautiful building, said Ward. A wooden structure and acoustically its interesting with multiple walls and the spire. It gives a warm sound to our music. Hailing from three different continents, it was an interest in improvisation which brought the three musicians together. Between us we speak about eight languages, Kuchenbuch said. All of us have in common an extreme passion for improvised music which is based on extensive travel and studying, Ward said. Ward explained how they make sketches of what they might do for each piece, but anything could happen during the live experience. The similarity is how we approach music with a shared language of improvisation and a live conversation happening, Ward said. I feel really honoured to work with both those guys, and people can expect a unique evening of music with instruments from all over the world. Andrea Johnston Senorita Ancestor Fiesta won a Highly Commended Yeperenye Shopping Centre Natural Fibre Award in 2015. It was created by Sarah Hill and Simone Guascoine and was modelled by Erika Hamilton.
