S P A T I A L I V E : Ollie Cox // David Quested
Curated for Magnet’s iconic Spatial Studio, S P A T I A L I V E features monthly performances by some of Naarm / Melbourne’s most exciting artists. The series aims to create a unique listening environment, with an emphasis on song and improvisational based music, embracing the intimacy of the Spatial. This month’s event features solo sets from David Quested & Ollie Cox.
David Quested and Ollie Cox are the team behind Spatialive. At the end of September they will be stepping down from this, and while it may not be the end of Spatialive forever - this month sadly marks the end of their involvement. Ollie and David always had planned that their last one would be played by themselves - as both have musical projects that would suit the series. However, as the month approached, the two didn’t feel that that would be the best way to close their chapter of the series. So instead, they will be presenting a very special one off performance. Ollie will be doing the opposite of what he usually does - and will be talking into a microphone for 45 mins, totally unprepared. David will be sharing stats and info on the series. You will have to be there to experience the end of Spatialive as we know it - a Spatialdeath of sorts. Tickets priced accordingly.
Ollie Cox is a Melbourne-based composer, drummer and improvisor, who works in the liminal spaces between constructs of sound and music. Drawing in equal measure from his jazz-centric background and love of experimentalism, Cox seeks to craft emotive compositions that flicker between spans of contemplative ambience to frenetic sonic chaos.
David Quested works and makes music through a variety of roles from producer, recording engineer, drummer and songwriter. He has a love for both the experimental and pop sides of music and tries to live somewhere between those two spaces.
