To illuminate two of Sydney’s most creative contemporary composers, ‘Music in the Mountains’ presents Elsen Price with Peter Urquhart & Hinterlandt together on one line-up for a very special ‘Live @ The Boilerhouse’. Elsen Price and Jochen Gutsch (Hinterlandt) represent a contemporary generation of genre-blurring non-conformist creatives in Sydney, providing the ideal line-up for an intimate exploration of music in an iconic Blue Mountains venue – this isn’t going to be your average night out!
Hinterlandt is a Sydney-based acoustic quintet playing original material written by German-born composer and musician, Jochen Gutsch. The music of Hinterlandt is diverse and progressive, with a narrative and engaging quality. Stylistically it combines aspects of contemporary chamber music with an ‘indie’ feel and melody-driven songwriting. Hinterlandt has taken on a number of different formats and performed in Sydney, Berlin, London, Bangkok, Melbourne, Hamburg, Jakarta, Helsinki, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Rome, Amsterdam, Lisbon, and many other places. Thirteen studio albums were released on independent labels.
- Nicole Smede – vocals
- Monique Mezzatesta – violin
- Jara Stinson – violin
- Simeon Johnson – cello
- Jochen Gutsch – composition, guitar, trumpet
Elsen Price w/ Peter Urquhart (9:10-10:00pm):
“His name may be unfamiliar, but his playing is unforgettable. A local treasure, Elsen Price is a double bassist who ranges across classical, avant-garde, jazz, Middle Eastern, free improvisation and more, and is utterly convincing in every context. He also uses real-time looping and extended techniques to create strata of bowed and pizzicato bass for spellbinding solo concert performances, and it is these Price has massaged into a suite for this album.”
