This performance sees Melbourne based drummer/composer Aaron McCoullough embark on a national tour promoting the release of 'Provenience'. The night will feature musicians: Tom Noonan (alto saxophone), Claire Strasser (tenor saxophone), James Bowers (piano), Tamara Murphy (bass), and Aaron McCoullough (drums/compositions).
'Provenience' is embedded in the reflection, and rediscovery of specific localities unique to the Illawarra region in New South Wales, with each composition representing a personal response to the constructs of ‘time’ and ‘place’.
Born in Wollongong, Australia on the New South Wales coastline, Aaron relocated to Melbourne in 2004 to undertake studies at the Victorian College of Arts. Since completing his undergraduate studies, Aaron has been a mainstay of the Melbourne music scene, and is an active leading his own original projects with the result being two self released titles: 'Portrait of Thoughts' (2013), and 'Provenience' (2018). His work as a musical collaborator has been well documented with appearances nationally and internationally. These musical encounters have led to numerous tours of industry recognised recording projects.
Alongside his performance practice of composer/drummer, Aaron is a current PhD candidate. Aaron proudly endorses Sakae Drums.
