Instead Tony Buck (drums/percussion) and Chris Abrahams (piano) are offering audiences two solo sets for those dates.
Both Chris Abrahams and Tony Buck are acclaimed soloists, each performing and recording in his own right.
Chris Abrahams has released eight albums and has performed solo concerts in Australia, US, UK and Europe. His pieces use intense rhythms and beautiful melodies to create an immersive experience for the listener.
Tony Buck has been performing solo concerts for two decades and is considered a leading light in the experimental movement in his adopted city of Berlin as well as internationally. For the last decade he has moved away from electronic sampling to concentrate on creating live, improvised pieces using the drum kit, assorted small percussion instruments and other acoustic sound sources to create a constantly moving and breathtaking kaleidoscope of sound.
‘We’re very sorry we’re unable to perform as The Necks for the first leg of the Australian tour but we hope Necks fans, and newcomers, will be interested to hear some of the solo work that has been informing The Necks’ music indirectly for many years,’ says Tony Buck.
Despite the unfortunate circumstances, this is a rare opportunity to experience the solo work of these two extraordinary musicians. Patrons can contact the venues directly with enquiries.
Friday February 7 – Byron Bay Community Centre.
