OLIVER MANN 2:30pm
LEO MULLINS 1:50pm
Slow Bark is the third album release by Oliver Mann. Previously released in part as an extremely limited 7" series, these works (recorded in part by?Stereolab's Andy Ramsay and Super Melody's James Cecil among others) sprawl and unfurl laterally, with striking ballads dissipating into lingering codas ensconced in space and atmosphere.
In recent years, Mann has played alongside luminaries, Joanna Newsom, Sarah Blasko, and?Mick Turner (Dirty Three), while steadily building a reputation and career within an operatic and sacred context including various roles with Opera Australia,?Victorian Opera and the renowned Bach program at St. John's Southgate.
It is this very coalescence between Mann?s work?within the classical cannon and his re-imagining of it that make his oeuvre so intriguing.
Support for this one-off Sunday matinee show on August 11 will come in the form of a short set from the wonderful Leo Mullins, whom is well-known for his involvement in the outfits Two-Litre Dolby, Friendly Injun and Small Knives.
NB – small kids are welcome with an adult.
