Launching her long-awaited solo albums Invisible Wilderness Volume I & II, London based contemporary composer-pianist Rae Howell returns home to tour an exclusive and intimate concert series..

In Sydney for the first time in 4 years, Rae performs original and improvised works that oscillate effortlessly across genres with immediacy and vibrancy rarely experienced in contemporary music. With support from the New Music Network, the performance also showcases London-based Australian jazz-pianist Meg Morley on piano.

Recorded over ten days in St Paul and Minneapolis (USA), Invisible Wilderness is a diverse double volume solo album featuring a collection of Rae Howell’s piano and keyboard works from contemporary, popular and cinematic styles to jazz infused improvisations.

Complete with hand drawn illustrations, Invisible Wilderness: Volume I was recorded on a Steinway concert grand and is accompanied by a sheet music publication that features 12 works in printed manuscript format. Volume II is more abstract, sidestepping the traditional piano sound, performed on a Fender Rhodes and various upright ramshackle pianos that immerse the listener in different textures, including the hammers, felts and pedalling.  and

Meg Morley is an Australian pianist-improviser who, after obtaining a Master of Music in classical piano (USQ), decided to pursue jazz improvisation (studying for a year at the VCA). She is currently living in London where she is composing, performing and playing for ballet and contemporary dance, and will be in Australia to promote her latest solo piano EP.
