Event description
Join Chris Cody and his quartet as they explore the voyage of Laperouse through a suite of powerful and moving music.

About this event

Chris Cody's Astrolabe – Suite for Lapérouse is a music-text-and video performance inspired by the extraordinary three-year voyage of French navigator Lapérouse.

International pianist and composer Chris Cody returns with his all-star quartet featuring some of Australia's finest jazz musicians to perform this major work. Lapérouse arrived here just six days after the First Fleet in 1788. After he left these shores a few weeks later he was never seen again, his two ships being shipwrecked near the Solomon Islands.

The incredible voyage and disappearance at sea of this French navigator has been a inspiration for Cody to write this work that explores different times and places, identity and the meetings of cultures.

The powerful and moving music draws upon jazz, classical and diverse world music influences inspired by the voyage. There is plenty of space for the musicians to open up and improvise over the different moods, textures and styles, ranging from calm meditation to exuberant joy.
