Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums), and Lloyd Swanton (bass) conjure a chemistry together that defies description in orthodox terms. Not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz, the deceptive simplicity of their music throws forth new charms on each hearing.
One of the great cult bands of Australia, The Necks, will make their QPAC debut in a concert event that promises to be a hypnotic and thrilling emotional journey into the unknown.
The Necks are, simply, at the top of their game.
With no two performances alike, The Necks invent their music in real time. A live performance can typically begin very quietly with one of the musicians playing something very simple and, one by one, the other two will join with their own contributions, all three independent yet intertwined. As the piece builds through subtle micro-changes, the interaction of their instruments creates layers of harmonics and washes of sound that unravel in the most mesmerising fashion whilst communicating a fierce energy and warmth.
“One of the greatest bands in the world.” New York Times
“A magic act masquerading as a piano trio, this Australian group delivers long-form improvisations that shift with such patient beauty that it casts a trance. You'll seldom spend an hour that passes so quickly – and rewardingly.” Los Angeles Times
