Tura is delighted to host internationally acclaimed free jazz pianist, composer and innovator, Keith Tippett, in their first-ever international Residency as part of their iMprov Program. Tura is proud to present Tippett’s Australian premiere performances, with Perth as his only engagement.

Widely recognised as one of the most distinctive and radical pioneers in contemporary jazz and improvised music, Tippett first gained prominence in London in the 1960s with his Sextet and ground-breaking 50-piece ensemble, Centipede. Today, with over 40 years of performance, composition, recordings, broadcasts, film scores, and youth education projects behind him, Tippett brings a wealth of experience to this Residency and subsequent performances.

Over the course of the Residency, Tippett will collaborate, improvise, and perform with the Western Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO), Tura’s iMprov Program, and the especially assembled Mujician Mosaic band.

The Residency will include two stand-alone concerts; the first, an up-close and personal solo sitting in Tippett’s rehearsal room. With the artist, his piano and little else, this will be an incredible opportunity for lovers of contemporary jazz and improvisation to see Tippett at his freest in a truly creative and intimate setting.

After weeks of dedicated rehearsals, the Residency will then conclude with an epic performance entitled “Mujician Mosaic”. This will feature extended collaborations with a number of selected ensembles of local musicians and stretch across Tippett’s work as a composer, director, facilitator and performer. Taking shape from dedicated rehearsals with both Wayjo and Mujician Mosaic, the concert will allow for structured playing, reworking’s and totally free improvisatory performances; showcasing collaborating artists as ensemble members and soloists. Also included in the Mujician Mosaic performance line-up is a newly created un-scored, free-form piece with the ensemble from Tura’s iMprov Program, which will be created during their dedicated rehearsal time with Tippett.
