Focused equally on improvisation, new works and pre-existing repertoire, Ba Da Boom has become an important laboratory for percussion in Australia, performing new music by composers Liza Lim, Erik Griswold, Jennifer Fowler, Gerardo Dirie, Michael Askill and Gerard Brophy.

It presented the Australian premiere of Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians, Reich’s Drumming at the Brisbane Powerhouse, River Styx  as part of William Duckworth’s I-Orpheus. Ba Da Boom devised and produced the four-hour event Meditation Drumming with drummer David Jones, and the three-day Reflective Resonances in conjunction with Brisbane’s Buddha Birth Day celebrations. It was featured in the 2006 Commonwealth Games Cultural Festival in Melbourne, and toured to the first Percussive Arts Society International Convention in 2009 in the USA.

Ba Da Boom has worked closely with leading percussionists Jan Williams, Fritz Hauser, Duo Vertigo, Karak, and has recorded extensively for ABC Classic FM.

This is a free event.
