Live at Studio 65

Studio 65 is a ideosyncratic performance space, and Mat and I were very much in experimental mode. Very spacious gig, where we sat on the edge of destruction for a half hour or so.

Kirby/Ward is the collaboration of Dani Kirby and Mat Ward. Dani Kirby (piano/keyboards/voice) and Mat Ward (bass) perform improvised multi-genre soundscapes that incorporate elements of post-classicism, noise-art, minimalism and polyrhythmic experimentation. Their practice includes site-specific response, expanded cinema, field recording manipulation and collaboration with percussion and custom-designed instrument ensembles. Kirby/Ward have been performing regularly across Australia at festivals, museums and events since 2016.
