Leave Only Footprints and Echoes: CONCERT


Beautiful Acoustic Music for Three by the Mornington Improvisers Collective

Within the intimate acoustics of St Johns Church in Flinders the three soloists who performed along the dawn Listening Trail present a joyous melding of voice, shakuhachi, hand percussion and gongs.

Anne Norman is a passionate performer of shakuhachi bamboo flute who works as a soloist as well as in collaboration with a diverse range of musicians. She has performed in festivals and concerts across Australia, Europe, America and Japan, and has recently completed a commission to compose chamber music celebrating the Surf Coast of Victoria.

Poul Grage is a percussionist and drummer traversing classical and non-Western music. His sound palette draws on jazz and “world” folk influences, and he freelances across rock, blues funk, big band jazz and works as a roving musical clown locally and internationally. At FFF23 Poul was Music Director of “Mirror Dance – Mating of the Weedy Sea Dragon".

Ria Soemardjo is a Melbourne based singer with a haunting vocal style reflecting her Australian/ Indonesian cultural heritage. She has a passion for collaborating with artists across diverse genres and art forms. Ria’s recent works explore contemporary performance rituals in response to natural and urban sites.
