HARRY JAMES ANGUS WITH FREYJA HOOPER
Presented by BLEACH*
Over two decades, Harry James Angus has carved out a reputation as a deeply felt and explosive live trumpeter and vocalist.
Having toured the world for over twenty years as the trumpeter, co-vocalist and improvisatory ringleader of The Cat Empire, he is currently touring with Australian drumming wunderkind Freyja Hooper. This duo concept takes all the dance floor energy and chaos of his earlier creations but passes it down to the bare bones of rhythm, chaos, and transcendence.
Harry James Angus, the firebrand trumpet-playing vocalist from the hugely successful Australian band The Cat Empire, is known both for his thrilling live performances and for his constant musical re-invention. His previous full-time gig with The Cat Empire has had much success with 6 Australian top ten albums and huge chart success all over the world; appearances at every major festival including Glastonbury and Montreal Jazz; and TV appearances on Letterman and Jay Leno.
Harry’s solo work is a different beast though. His new work takes the raw intensity, chaos and exploratory power that has helped make The Cat Empire such an incandescent live experience, but redirects it towards a darker, more weirdly beautiful universe. A universe inspired by artists like Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Antony & The Johnsons and John Coltrane.
This event is primary sound and/or music based and sight is not essential to be able to engage with the work.
