The music of The Necks is a fascinating law unto itself, and invariably described as simply unique. Each performance is a singular event, entirely improvised and working with the acoustics of the room, featuring lengthy pieces which build in a mesmerising fashion, taking the audience on a unpredictably fascinating sonic journey.
The cult Australian trio are recognised internationally for a signature approach to performance. In recent years, alongside their regular international touring, The Necks have been invited by Nick Cave to appear at All Tomorrow’s Parties and collaborated with Evan Parker, Austrian electroacoustic trio Radian, and with Brian Eno in Pure Scenius at Sydney Opera House and Brighton Festival.
“Absolutely riveting…how three musicians can sound like eighteen is a mystery… extraordinary magical sounds emerged from the ensemble…the way The Necks do this with acoustic instruments is nothing short of miraculous” Financial Times
