Chevron Festival Gardens present

The Necks and Hauschka

An exquisite evening of avant-garde piano works and experimental jazz.


Wed 24 Feb, 8.00pm

Chevron Festival Gardens

Tickets $50–$55

  • Classical
  • Jazz


Cult Australian improv trio, The Necks’ live shows have been described as religious experiences. Celebrated for creating immersive sets with sensitivity, intelligence and stamina, blending jazz, ambient and avantgarde, their music gradually changes as the narrative fades and drifts – and no two shows are ever the same.

Minimalist but elaborate, Volker Bertelmann (alias Hauschka) has made a career out of jamming all sorts of things into his piano. His techno, drum and bass background gives his prepared piano improvisations a clean, filtered sound that exists somewhere between classical, electronic and pop. 

Live on stage, The Necks & Hauschka promise to deliver an exquisite evening of avant-garde piano works and experimental jazz.
