HEKKA 'everywhere i go my body goes with me' Album Launch w/ Tully Ryan/Abby Constable, e4444e & .ilex (DJ)
HEKKA is a Sydney based instrumental trio who marries their live intensity and virtuosity with a vibrant electronic approach. The band traverses loops, pulses and improvisations to assert themselves as one of the most exciting groups to emerge from Sydney in many years.
With nods to New York’s downtown loft scene and London’s gritty nu-jazz wave, the trio moves effortlessly across anthemic melodies, skittering breakbeats and meditative landscapes to generate a sound which is iconoclastic and unpredictable. Yet while curiosity and exploration inform the aesthetic, songs remain pre-eminent. Beauty is in the clarity, and communication is always key.
Having performed at some of Australia’s premier venues including the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Recital Centre, the trio - Novak Manojlovic, Jacques Emery and Tully Ryan - here celebrate the release of their debut record ‘everywhere I go my body goes with me’ - a work which cements their position at the forefront of contemporary instrumental music.
"HEKKA...was thrillingly distinctive. This trio's improvising language is all its own" - Sydney Morning Herald
