Ahead of his performance with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, multi ARIA Award-winning Oud virtuoso Joseph Tawadros will delight audiences for a one night only solo performance in the amazing setting of St John's Anglican Church in Fremantle.
Over the course of 10 albums, various national and international collaborations, Joseph has tastefully pushed the boundaries of the oud, discovering new musical territory through his virtuosity, soulful compositions, and extraordinary vision as a collaborator.
Tawadros Middle Eastern flavoured compositions constantly push the boundaries of melody and meter and are a rare combination of highly emotional music intertwined with boundless energy.
A true musicianship of the highest degree.
When & Where
Parenthèses Records started of as a witness of some of the incredible new musical collaborations that emerged out of Freeform, the bi-monthly improvisation evenings curated by KULCHA Multicultural Arts of Western Australia in 2009/2010, aiming at getting musicians of different cultural and musical backgrounds to play together in an open and creative way, free from some of the protocols of performer/audience convention.
From watching these new groups form and grow in new ideas, became the desire to start a releasing platform and to become a nevralgic centre for musicians keen to apprehend cultural cross-collaboration and musical exploration spanning through various idioms sitting at the crossroads between tradition and continuum.
With a broad artistic vision, the label's core objective is to engage dialogue between musicians and thus create new inter-cultural collaborative work.
