Lo-Fi Improv

Presented by Australian Art Orchestra and Namboku Records

Apax Warehouse

Featuring two prominent figures in Japanese Hip-hop, The Australian Art Orchestra in collaboration with the Tokyo based collective Namboku Records, presents a warehouse party in the heart of Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

Lo-Fi Improv is a celebration of the intersections between improvisation, rhyme schemes, experimental music and sample culture. Alongside unique voices in Melbourne Jazz and beat music, this event features solo performances from Tokyo hip-hop luminary MC’s Kojoe and Hikaru Tanaka, as well as excerpts from the Australian Art Orchestra’s latest work, Raw Denshi. With performances from a selected line-up of Naarm based beat makers and Dj’s, Lo-Fi Improv showcases the longstanding relationships between artists of the Tokyo hip-hop scene and Melbourne Jazz, in a space that welcomes community to experience new pathways of experimentation in music.
