Spike Mason’s ‘OXIMETRIC: a blend of beauty and tension‘.

The Founders Room on Woobys Lane
Salamanca Arts Centre 

Spike has been a PhD candidate at UTAS for the past four years researching his original Oximetric music.
The oximetric concept involves the execution of a largely unfamiliar performance practice within jazz ensemble music.
Each musician within the ensemble plays melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic material, either composed or improvised, within their own unrelated pulse. 

The musicians, although playing at the same time, do not adhere to a shared pulse, time signature, or groove.
Each of the pulses are played with the goal to maintain a sense of the individual. There is no need for them to start or finish together. The pulses are not rhythmic subdivisions of each other or related mathematically. They are separate voices that create a synergy by being sounded together in the same sonic space, and sharing a common intent, or mood. 

The oximetric concept incorporates archetypal rhythms that are expanded and compounded by each of the performers in the ensemble at their discretion. The rhythms are to be executed ‘phrasically’, so that each melodic or rhythmic segment is not strict but flows and breathes as in our natural bodies.

“The object is not the random juxtaposition of hostile pieces of music, but the creation of something entirely natural, despite its divergent pulses and harmonies. The result is not a jumble of sounds but often a strange serenity, with points of convergence. 
Rather than being unrelentingly busy, the multiple layers tend towards discerning restraint, engendering a blend of beauty and tension.” John Shand – Sydney Morning Herald

Spike Mason’s OXIMETRIC comprises Damien Kingston – guitar; Hamish Houston – double bass; Konrad Park – drums; Spike Mason – saxophone.

Doors & Bar open at 7pm
Music begins at 7.30pm

‘Salamanca Jazz’ is Live in the Founders Room on Woobys Lane, with the

Damien Kingston Quartet ‘Harmony’ album Launch
and supported by the Annwen Roberts Quartet

The Damien Kingston Quartet, featuring Matt Boden on Piano, Hamish Houston on Bass, and Tom Robb on drums, has released its latest album ‘Harmony’ on vinyl, and will be launching the record with a live performance.

The music from the group features dense textures, fluttering melodies, and huge walls of sound; rhythmic intricacy and some dramatic harmony shine through in music that prioritises songcraft and resonance.

The Damien Kingston Quartet is an ensemble dedicated to performing original compositions that mix elements of jazz, free improv, and traditional song form. The band has been performing together since 2018 and to date has three albums out; the latest, ‘Harmony’, was released on ABC Jazz and Scratch Match Records.

‘Harmony’ will be available for purchase on the evening [ have a listen at www.damienkingston.com ].

Damien Kingston – Guitar | Matt Boden – Piano | Hamish Houston – Bass | Tom Robb – Drums

The Quartet will be playing material from the new album alongside some new tunes, and will be supported by a set of original tunes and standards from the Annwen Roberts Quartet.

She has a keen interest in the practices of bebop, Mingus-style big band music and free improvisation.

Salamanca Jazz’ is Live in the Founders Room on Woobys Lane, with Nadira & Friends.

Salamanca Jazz launches its 2024 live music program with Nadira & Friends

Nadira is this unstoppable person; Full of energy and enthusiasm. 

Nadira sings with the kind of pure joy that is totally contagious. “Those who have been to her shows knows that this petite, yet commanding, performer has a punk-ish attitude and on-stage banter that could be a comedy act on its own” (Australianjazz.net). 

Over the past ten years Nadira Farid has performed at Clubs and Festivals across Australia, and entertained the audience with her fresh, cheeky renditions of jazz standards and tunes from The Great American Songbook

When the rhythm gets lively, you won’t be able to resist hitting the dance floor and swaying to her upbeat melodies. But it’s in the hush of a ballad, when Nadira’s voice pours out like velvet, that she’ll leave you breathless, holding on to her every note in suspended silence. 

For Salamanca Jazz in February 2024, Nadira will be performing as part of a sextet, accompanied by Aaron Entresz (guitar), Iestyn Parry (piano), Jesse Bowden (sax), Jed Adams (d/bass) and Bruce Innocent (drums).

Doors & Bar open at 7pm

We Are Made of Stardust by artist Michaela Gleave was commissioned for Kelly’s Garden as part of the Three Portraits Project, which explores Salamanca Art Centre’s past, present and future, a project supported by the Tasmanian Community Fund.


The installation explores humanity’s relationships with the cosmos, reflecting on the impact that scientific knowledge has on our understanding of ourselves, and the world around us. Mounted above the audience and addressing the sky, the text looks out beyond the city to contemplate the vast expanses of time and space. Appearing subtle white during the day, the work comes alive at night as the illuminated letters become visible against the darkened sky. Scrolling through the colours of the visible light spectrum, We Are Made of Stardust considers both the limitlessness and finitude of existence; a celebration of the beauty and majesty of the universe.

Accompanying the lettering is a live soundscape from the project, A Galaxy of Suns. Created in collaboration with composer Amanda Cole, programmer Warren Armstrong and astronomer Michael Fitzgerald, A Galaxy of Suns ‘plays’ the stars as they rise and set over the horizon in real-time, for any location on Earth. Treating the Earth as a giant spinning music box, the project connects GPS and time coordinates to data from the Hipparcos stellar catalogue, to create an atmospheric rendering of our journey through space.


Michaela Gleave

Michaela Gleave is a visual artist based in Sydney, Australia. Gleave’s projects question our relationship to time, matter and space, focusing in particular on the changing intersections between art, science and society. Often temporal, Gleave’s works oscillate between the micro and the macro, between the spaces of personal experience and global understanding, allowing us to experience the processes by which we comprehend reality and rethink our presence within it.
