Andrew Tuttle presents Fleeting Adventure

Where
Phoenix Central Park
Phoenix Central Park
37-49 O’Connor Street, Chippendale NSW 2008
When

Thursday 22 September from 6:30pm to 9pm

Andrew Tuttle, of Brisbane/Meanjin, dwells in a world where five-string banjo and six-string acoustic guitar sit serenely and purposefully. Holding a space that is abundant and generous, Tuttle makes tropical folk music that turns its listeners into insiders — beckoning a journey which unfolds many heart-opening moments.

A best-kept secret of the Australian musical underground, Andrew Tuttle is a songwriter, composer and improviser who has collaborated with Matmos, Steve Gunn, Charlie Parr, Gwenifer Raymond and many others. Tuttle's music exists serenely and purposefully in a space where the five-string banjo and the six-string acoustic guitar weave in and out of processed electronics. Like time-lapse photography, it unfolds its colours and textures with an astonishing gracefulness and wonderment.

Fleeting Adventure, Tuttle's forthcoming fifth solo album, is a musical adventure through a reimagined journey from the Australian ambient producer and banjo player. Released on 29 July 2022 via Mistletone (AUS/NZ) and Basin Rock (ROW), a crew of fellow travellers - including Steve Gunn, Chuck Johnson, Luke Schneider and Balmorhea - help navigate a cosmic trip into subtropical landscapes. Golden plucks of banjo, gauzy electronics and cosmic guitar shimmer into gloriously expansive melodies that conjure peace and space, comfort and wonder.

This performance at Phoenix features works and adaptations from Tuttle’s fifth solo album Fleeting Adventure, and Tuttle’s 2020 album Alexandra. Performed on banjo, banjitar, acoustic guitar, real-time electronics and video, Tuttle’s shimmering waves of decay, reverberation and processed electronics are mesmerising and provide 'a restorative portal of escapism' (The Quietus).

N.B. There are two sittings for this event: 6:30pm & 8:15pm

Tickets are free and will be allocated by ballot.
