"A screaming comes across the sky."
Thomas Pynchon.

Lines of Flight are an improvising ensemble who work with an individual set of sounds and ideas taken from the realms of contemporary jazz, rock and metal, art music, experimental beats, and free improvisation. The band features Joe Cummins on trumpet, Casey Golden on piano, Alex Slater on drums, and Sam Pettigrew on bass. The band aim to present simple compositions played with care and passion. We like to talk about our music being 'heavy', 'hardcore', and 'intense', but in reality you can expect Lines of Flight to play songs that are often hypnotic, quite, lyrical, and emotional, delivered with a mix of understated minimalism and joyful improvisation.

Sam and Joe once saw Oren Ambarchi perform. It sounded, and felt, like sitting just behind a jet engine. Lines of Flight are working on creating their own savage sound machine. We're not sure exactly what it is yet, but the engine purrs with the fumey flames of Alasnoaxis, Miles Davis, Arve Henriksen, Radiohead, Holy Other, and the many wonderful musicians on the Sydney scene.

Lines of Flight are excited to be playing at Colbourne Avenue and will present some new compositions to celebrate the occasion.  

One of the most exciting young bands in town, the Casey Golden Trio bring their unique trio concept and ever-growing repertoire of original music to Colbourne Ave. Although coming from diverse musical backgrounds with a wide range of influences, the trio have built a strong rapport with one another and are constantly striving to further develop their collective musical personality. These guys are a real unit . A great representation of the ‘now’ in piano trio music. 

”A very promising young contemporary jazz acoustic piano trio from Sydney that are in the rhapsodic EST mould, but with a clear personal vision in their mix of trancey melodies and live musical jump cuts.” Jazzwise (UK)

“The young Sydneysider generates driving rhythms and improvises effervescent melodies on his own compositions... a commendable debut" Sydney Morning Herald
