Displacement references the migrant experience when one’s sense of home and community feels somewhat displaced due to the uprooting of one’s life, particularly within an Australian narrative.

The latest work from Melbourne based musician, Josh Kelly, Displacement explores French Impressionism, modal jazz, and syncopated rhythm cycles through the lens of Josh's family's migration around the world.

Commissioned specifically for MIJF Displacement seamlessly melds composed elements with featured improvisations to create a soundscape which blurs the lines between the known and unknown.
