Bitter Almond skates the borders of folk, jazz and experimental pop, showcasing open, improvised arrangements of original music and traditional folk songs. Acoustic and electric guitars converse with effects and vocal loops while exceptional songwriting takes centre stage. Formed in 2016 by multi-instrumentalists Erica Bramham (http://ericabramham.com/) and Adam Spiegl (http://adamspiegl.com/), and featuring some of Melbourne's best hidden musical talents.
"Tezat" is a Turkish word whih translates to mean contrast, juxtaposition, or contradiction. Born out of a fascination of Eastern soundscape and odd time signatures, this is a dynamic quartet explores original work, Eastern musics, Modern jazz and improvisation textures. Tezat was formed back in early 2015 by contemporary saxophonist Rohan Laird (www.rohanlaird.com) and draws from the talents of Amanda Goldsworthy (drums), Adam Russo (guitars), and Ivan Tagg (bass).
