Jim Denley - wind instruments born Bulli, Australia 22/1/57
Spontaneity, site-specificity and collaboration have been central to his work. He sees no clear distinctions between his roles as instrumentalist, improviser and composer. In 1990 he joined Derek Bailey’s festival, ‘Company’ in London for a series of concerts. Over the decades he has played throughout Australia, Europe, The Americas, Lebanon and Japan. With MURAL, (Kim Myhr and Ingar Zach) he performed in 2010 at the Rothko Chapel in Houston – a CD of that concert was released in 2011. In April 2013 they performed a 4 hr concert there, which as Tempo, was released as a 3 CD on Sofa in 2015. They performed in Europe, Canada and Mexico in 2016. In Sydney his main activity is with the Splinter Orchestra, they released ‘MUNGO’, (splitrec 27) a 3 CD set early in 2017. He is intensely interested in unusual contexts – these CDs were recorded in a desert region in far-west NSW. He has this year released a new solo on (Sofa 557), ‘Cut Air’. It explores his new ideas of playing the percussive flute, inspired by his love of the flute music from Malaita
