Glebe Music Festival
In conjunction with The Glebe Society Inc
Quantum Theory will be playing original compositions including:
Quantum Theory is new concept jazz group. What originally began as a regular jam session quickly became an original unit, composing music that extended and emphasised group dialogue and interaction. The musicians focus on music that allows and encourages expression of the group's identity as a whole, rather than as individuals. The band's challenge is to remain true to this concept, without falling into the abyss of directionless and aimless music that often disguises itself as "free" music.
Bill Williams is a bass player in his third year of study at the ANU school of music. He plays in many bands around the ACT and NSW, focusing mainly on jazz and blues, in bands such as "More teeth than Barry and the Stingers." He also performs with a Celtic band from Canberra called "Eilean Mor," that tours Scotland regularly. He has done many jazz gigs in the ACT performing with ANU jazz students and also some staff including John Mackey Miroslav Bukovsky and Mike Price.
Ed Rodrigues has been playing drums and percussion in professional circles for many years. He has almost completed his tertiary study at the ANU school of music, and is already heavily involved in music promotion in the ACT. He has recently initiated a new concept at the "White Eagle" club in an attempt to bring more music to the region. Originally from Sydney, he has played with many well-known jazz artists including Australian legend, Don Burrows.
Sebastian McIntosh moved from Sydney in 2005 to undertake tertiary
study of the Saxophone with John Mackey at the ANU. He has been involved
with music for many years, and in 2004 toured the United States and Bahamas
with the North Sydney Big Band, playing at festivals including the International
Association of Jazz Education Conference in New York. Within Australia,
he has been playing semi-professionally for several years, performing
gigs at various venues in both NSW and the ACT. More recently, he performed
with International Jazz Celebrity and member of the "Yellow Jackets,"
Bob Mintzer in a special concert with the ANU Big Band.
