Tour Information
Formed in 2015, Alargo, keyboardist Alan Brown and brass/percussionist Kingsley Melhuish craft a world of space and colour within their improvised, electronica-tinged compositions.
Armed with iPads and loopers, Alargo produce beautifully haunting music with the presence of space a noticeable element.
“We are no longer constrained by tempo, melody or form; which enables us to more deeply explore texture and our creative spontaneity,’ says Melhuish.
He says the improvised performances use technology to shape haunting impressions. “We build soundscapes… and set them adrift.”
While Brown and Melhuish are well regarded as jazz musicians having played and performed throughout New Zealand, Alargo is a new persona for both men who are excited at pushing the boundaries into a new genre.
“We are taking our audience on a journey that’s new for them, because it’s new for us. That makes for some exciting performances” says Melhuish.
