My album launch has been scheduled to occur on Saturday 25th October at 7pm at Hares and Hyenas bookstore in Fitzroy.
This gig is a joint gig with RMIT Occasional Choral Society (ROCS) and Queermance Writers Festival, and promises to be a very entertaining variety show.
I’ll be performing a couple of the ballads from my album at the electric piano, a few of my a cappella compositions using a looper, plus a few things that aren’t on my albums. In particular, to suit the cabaret style event and the general theme of “impeccably questionable taste”, it is a rare chance to hear several of my catches in one night. These are rounds with hidden messages that are revealed when all parts are heard together and certain syllables are emphasised. I’ve also written a song on the Queermance theme especially for the gig.
When I’m not doing my solo stuff I’ll be singing with (and occasionally accompanying) various ensemble groups doing songs from musicals as well as a couple of madrigals. Listen out for the surprise madrigal!
A selection of songs from my albums that I won’t be performing on the night will be heard during the intervals.
There will be a raffle on the night with some amazing prizes, including a $300 corset.
I hope you can make it!
