Jack has been playing piano and composing since age ten. With extensive experience as a classical performer, composer and arranger, he writes and performs music for the concert realm, as well as for film and visual media. He has piano music published within Australia and most recently composed the music for Dominik György’s award winning short ‘The Next One’. He also recently collaborated with Dan Fox & Adam Ciancio on two short films in Australia, both coming out later this year. He is currently living and working in London on several new film projects and a solo piano project: a collection of improvisations based on the idea of ‘the hidden internal dialogue that propels us through our lives’. His style is unique, influenced greatly by post-minimalism and ambience, as well as elements of modernism and jazz.
What is consistent across his work is strength of conceptualisation; it can stand alongside film, in the concert hall, or be played for a tiny room of friends and always be understood for what it is, on it’s own terms. His creative rationale is that music can achieve a timeless quality, and should always seek to do so. With the goal of writing and playing to provoke true ‘listening’, he hopes to have a meaningful and lasting impact on what people can feel through sound.
