"The wrong band for the right people."
Original, unusual and conversational music from three of Australiaʼs ﬁnest improvisors; Martin Kay on alto sax (Fantastic Terriﬁc Munkle/Continuum Sax/SSO), David Reaston on guitar (leader of the 10 Guitar Project), and Jamie Cameron on drums (20th Century Dog/Amphibious/Adam Ponting). A fascination for texture and offbeat interactions led to a consensus to improvise and compose as a chamber ensemble. Song Fwaa views music as an open vessel into which ideas are dropped and stewed. One is as likely to encounter a ragged ragtime or a post-bop scronk as much as a munted groove or a dodecaphonic row.
'Song Fwaa's music is an extraordinary collection…The trio has adopted a Ligeti-style approach, sometimes using dense webs of texture suspended in space and time…eclecticism is skillfuly and originally explored.' John McBeath, The Australian, 14/5/2011.
'The eerie sonic world weaves composition and improvisation as thoroughly as it mingles and blurs the sounds…. By turns dense, disquieting, playful, moving and hypnotic, it adds up to the finest recorded work by each member of this fiercely cohesive Sydney trio.' John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald, 15/7/2011.
