About the Event
Cinematic and dream-like, Spirograph Studies build a collective dialogue using influences from post-rock, minimalism and neo-classical musical styles to create their live, genre-bending soundtrack. They introduce themes which slowly build to fill out the space they perform in, drawing on different sonic influences for each track.
Spirograph Studies have been carving out a niche in the Australian music landscape with their unique approach, led by bassist and composer Tamara Murphy. Their albums have been shortlisted for Music Victoria awards, featured on The Best Jazz on Bandcamp list October 2021), Album of the Week on ABC Jazz and the single Anteloper was one of the Top Tracks on Feature Sounds (PBS Radio). They toured Australia and New Zealand in 2019, receiving glowing reviews.
“If there is one quality which most permeates the music of Spirograph Studies, it is melodic beauty.”
