Claire Cross on the ‘Surface’ project: “Let’s call it a drama”

“We definitely have a sound that draws from heavy rock music and certain aspects from ambient music too. A lot of the pieces on the album have their own characteristic and mood about them; some are definitely more folk sounding, whilst others can be very raw and aggressive, and then others have a sort of ‘chamber ensemble’ sound about them. It’s not a straight-ahead jazz group by any means.”

Berardi/ Foran/Karlen: “Being Australian is a mixture of natural beauty and cultural diversity”

“In no way did any of us want to honour or glorify the concept of war, so we were quite burdened with the seriousness of the task at hand: honouring historical happenings and putting a voice to these concepts and people’s experiences from this time”.
