These artists appearing at Festival 2018
The Grigoryan Brothers and Adam Page
Guitarists, Slava and Leonard Grigoryan, are counted amongst the finest musicians of their generation having developed a reputation for enthralling audiences with the energy of their performances and the breadth of their repertoire. Between them, they have: received two ARIA awards, recorded seven albums, collaborated with musicians from Australia and overseas and toured to festivals and concert halls throughout Europe, the USA and Asia. Slava & Leonard Grigoryan’s deep appreciation of a broad spectrum of musical styles has resulted in many collaborations involving music, both written and improvised. Combine this with their classical training and the result is a unique sound incorporating all these influences. It is not classical, not jazz, not world music….it is the Grigoryan Brothers.
Adam Page is a multi-instrumentalist and composer who uses looping and technology to create a universe of soundscapes. He has gigged at festivals around the world including at Glastonbury (UK), WOMADelaide, WOMAD NZ, Big Day Out, Edinburgh Fringe, Sydney International Arts Festival, Adelaide Fringe and more. Page has carved his path internationally as a composer. He has written major works for the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (which he has also conducted), the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Wellington,
Slava, Leonard and Adam are currently writing music and developing ‘points of departure’ for this, their first outing together as a trio. The result will be an amazing combination of music both written and improvised, sounds looped and distorted, embracing elements from their own worlds….and beyond?
