SPIROGRAPH STUDIES

Spirograph Studies have leapt onto the Australian music scene with their detailed, textural approach to improvised music. Lead by bassist Tamara Murphy, Spirograph Studies features Luke Howard (piano), Fran Swinn (guitar) & James McLean (drums). Collaboratively, the group form a cinematic sound with a varied sonic palette.

Murphy has been awarded the PBS Young Elder of Jazz Commission for the creation and presentation of her work Big Creatures & Little Creatures. She ran her group Murphy’s Law for 14 years and was a member of the Keller-Murphy-Browne co-operative. Featuring on countless releases, her albums have been nominated for The Age Genre Awards, AIR awards and The Bell Awards.Spirograph Studies have performed around Australia and at festivals including Wangaratta Jazz Festival, Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, and have supported US guitarist Bill Frisell.

LANEOUS (solo)

In 2016, after 8 years of Brisbane-based domination of the Australian underground art/soul/jazz scene (with ‘mutant-soul/croon punk’ cult group Laneous & The Family Yah, reggae band Kooii and improv-jazz-beat trio Vulture St. Tape Gang), Lachlan Mitchell relocated to Melbourne. Lachlan has since established Uncomfortable Science, an improvised jam with a changing cast directed by Lachlan, and released the long-awaited Laneous solo record Monstera Deliciosa (via Soul Has No Tempo, 2019). In classic Laneous fashion, the musical references for the record run deep - an exotica/funk infused journey held firmly in place by his trademark croon.
