Jared is collaborating with SYNERGY PERCUSSION for a new electronic music project called CITY JUNGLE . The project is all about writing, performing and improvising some new DubStep, Breaks, and Drum & Bass- from a percussionists perspective. There will be digital marimba’s, futuristic gadgets, triggers on vintage drum kits, vocals, deep bass lines and lots of raw percussive energy and creativity.
Synergy’s artist director Timothy Constable invited Jared to join the 3 piece group that also includes Sydney jazz virtuoso drummer Evan Mannell. Jared and Timothy’s musical friendship goes way back -when Timothy was the Vibraphone player in CODA- they toured nationally and in Thailand. Timothy and Jared discovered they both shared a love of electronic music, improvisation and percussion- they would often listen to Squarepusher at full volume in the tour van. Jared is really looking forward to performing with Timothy and Evan for these exciting shows.
There are 4 shows 19-22 October at The Seymore Center, Sydney.
