Contemporary performances paired with vintage footage of iconic Australian artists including The Necks, Darren Percival, Alister Spence, Barney McAll, Scott Tinkler, Band of Five Names and Joe Chindamo captured as part of the 2001 Australian jazz documentary, The Pulse.
SIMA has launched an online performance series featuring artists such as Virna Sanzone and Phil Stack, Matt Keegan and Miles Thomas: K, 2Delay 45, The Fabulous Botting Flower, Underwards (Kirkwood/Geddes)and Zela Margossian Trio. The concerts are available for 30 days from the initial performance.
Understanding that live music had been transformed for 2020 and perhaps longer, SIMA has made a major investment in Sydney’s creative sector to produce the series, ensuring employment for musicians, curators, sound and technical engineers, video producers, designers, arts workers and publicists.
“Jazz is a genre that is built on innovation and embraces risk. We knew that we could use our agility as a smaller producer to continue to present work through COVID and provide an outlet for the industry at a time when it was most needed”. Zoe Hauptmann
