Leaping into the Australian music scene with their detailed, textural approach to playing improvised music, Spirograph Studies have built and developed a highly technical cinematic sound!

Post-rock, post-jazz and post-minimalism, they shamelessly steal sonic palettes from all areas establishing their own unique sound.

Performing around Australia and at multiple festivals including Wangaratta Jazz Festival (their show streamed live to Facebook via ABC Jazz), Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival (closing night act 2016), and supporting US guitarist Bill Frisell on opening night of the 2017 Melbourne International Jazz Festival their performance is one that cannot be missed!!

Coming to Geelong the performance will take place in the wonderful Courthouse Theatre, and tickets are available HERE

This iteration of the ensemble features Tamara Murphy (double bass), Sam Keevers (piano), Fran Swinn (guitar) & James McLean (drums) – check out their beautiful piece “Time To Be Still” to get a feel for their unique aesthetic and wonderful musical empathy.

Bandleader Tamara Murphy was awarded the inaugural PBS Young Elder of Jazz Commission for the creation and presentation of 2011 new work: Big Creatures & Little Creatures. Her previous group Murphy’s Law performed together for 14 years, in which time she was also a member of the Keller-Murphy-Browne co-operative. She features on multiple releases and her albums have been nominated for The Age Genre Awards, AIR awards and The Bell Awards.

In 2019, Spirograph tour Australia and New Zealand to launch their debut album Kindness, Not Courtesy.
