The Music of Queen – Sydney/Melbourne Shows

Hi all,

It’s a great pleasure to be playing keyboards on this gig – the music of Queen arranged for orchestra, with a 5-piece rock band and four singers from international productions of We Will Rock You. The arrangements are beautiful and the singers knock it out of the park.

Recommended for fans of Queen and pop/orchestra collaborations.

Artefact Agency EP launch (Jeans/Luebbers/Susnjar)

Dear friends,

I am launching the debut EP from Artefact Agency on Saturday July 23 in Perth, courtesy of the Perth Jazz Society and Villanova Music.

The gig will also feature my 6 piece group Minesweeper - see further details below! Doors open 7:30pm and are at a semi-secret location – for venue details email me at: johannes [at] listenhearcollective dotcom

Tickets are super limited, so booking ahead is recommended. Email me for a booking link (see above email)
Entry will also include a download of our EP.

Tickets – $15 for PJS members. NOT A PJS MEMBER? No worries! Ticket and 12 month membership deal – $25 (usual membership $40 – bargain!)

The PJS and Villanova Music are excited to present the debut EP launch from Artefact Agency, featuring Simon Jeans, Johannes Luebbers (MEL) & Daniel Susnjar. Performing collaboratively composed music that draws on the diverse stylistic interests of its three members, Artefact Agency has collaborated on live film scores and contemporary dance works. Creating semi-composed sonic structures, AA deconstructs the form and allows the music to unfold in unpredictable ways.

This EP launch is the first of a series of EPs recorded by Artefact Agency, each exploring a slightly different compositional aesthetic. All launch attendees will receive a complementary download card.

Joining Artefact Agency will be Minesweeper, led by Johannes Luebbers and performing his original compositions. Minesweeper was formed in 2013 as a vehicle to explore extended composition in a small group setting. Combining detailed composition with improvisation, Minesweeper draws on the freedom and creativity of jazz, weaving it into a contemporary compositional framework.
