Kira Kira: Bright Force (Japan/Australia)
‘An absolute triumph…incredibly successful collectivism and mutual awareness of the creative process.’ Roger Mitchell, AusJazz
Explosive and beautiful, Kira Kira features internationally acclaimed Japanese improvisers and composers Satoko Fujii and Natsuki Tamura, and Australian keyboard player composer, Alister Spence.
‘She could be the most important creative musicians of our time (Satoko Fujii)’ – Allmusic
Bright Force is a suite in four parts that mixes piano and trumpet with electronics and drums. For this performance Kira Kira will be joined by Lloyd Swanton on double bass and Toby Hall on drums and percussion.
‘Kira Kira weights layer upon layer of sound until it approaches a breaking point that never quite materializes. Instead, the music finds its way to someplace near perpetuity and how it gets there is never obvious. It’s awe-inspiring music.’ 4½ stars. Karl Ackermann Allaboutjazz.com
SATOKO FUJII – Piano
NATSUKI TAMURA – Trumpet

Chloe Kim (drums) and Jacques Emery (bass) are current jazz performance students from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
They discovered their common interest in drumming music, as well as the jazz-influenced experimental improvisations and started playing together in 2016.
Specifically influenced by the Conservatorium lecturer Simon Barker’s Quintuplet and Septuplet studies, a drummer Greg Sheehan’s Number Diamond system and the traditional rhythms from various cultures (such as Korean traditional rhythms), their work focuses on developing knowledge in diverse rhythmic dialogues and using those shared language in any improvising/musical settings.
