The Republic concludes a triumphant 2018 with a great friend and brilliant performer gracing our stage for the first time, along with some very special colleagues; don't miss this opportunity to see one of Sydney's finest, and celebrate another great year here, and perhaps hear something about plans for next year (or not!)...
SAM GILL [Alto Sax]
with BRAD GILL [Percussion]
and SIMON BARKER [Drums]
SUNDAY 10th December COMMENCING AT 7.30 P.M. [doors at 7 p.m.]
Mind On Fire 'The Process of Unbecoming' album launch
Mind On Fire is a duo project featuring brothers Brad and Sam Gill. Their set tonight will celebrate the release of their debut self-produced album 'The Process of Unbecoming', featuring music that draws on exploratory approaches to composition and improvisation, often blurring the lines between the two.
Their performance at The People's Republic will feature Sam's contribution to the album in its entirety - a three part suite for solo alto sax and tape called 'Traced, Sing the Veil'. You'll also hear the duo playing two of Brad's works for alto and vibraphone, including one that is featured on the album.
Sam Gill & Simon Barker duo
The second set will feature Sam alongside acclaimed drummer Simon Barker. Following their first duo performance in late 2015, Sam's continued study with Simon has led to a shared interest in rhythmic and textural sources for improvisation.
