POME Presents: A post lockdown experience like no other. Fusing together two of the finer things in life: jazz and cabaret.
Adam Rudegeair's 'Songs Without Worlds'
Adam Rudegeair is a prolific composer, performer and educator based in Melbourne. His music is rooted in jazz and funk, with significant influences from the sounds of New Orleans, Minneapolis and avant-garde groove musicians such as Sun Ra and Medeski Martin & Wood. Adam's current projects include Lake Minnetonka, The Bowie Project and the ongoing collaboration with jazz legend Bob Sedergreen ‘Bourbon Street to Brunswick Street’. He enjoys performing tunes by his favourite jazz composer Thelonious Monk, as well as film and TV music, and songs by Prince and Bowie.
Adam’s discography includes the following: Transmogrify (2004), Bayou Tapestry (2011), Bourbon St to Brunswick St (2015), and The Bowie Project (2015), Melbourneapolis (by Lake Minnetonka) an original score to the Cinema Viscera feature film Trench, and The Bowie Project 2: It’s Always Time. In 2020, Adam completed four albums and the soundtrack to the local independent feature film Apparitions.
'Songs Without Worlds' is an opportunity for Adam and his band to perform tunes from his back catalogue that don't have a home in one of his current projects. The flavours of New Orleans and Minneapolis suffuse his dynamic and angular pianistic stylings.
