Antelodic explores the space between jazz, chamber music and acoustic folk, with influences including Bill Frisell, Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Guiffre, the writings of Richard Brautigan and the photography of William Eggleston.

Individually, Melville, Brazil & Mackenzie have worked with artists as diverse as Gotye, Krystle Warren, Shane Howard, Isaiah Firebrace, Vince Jones, Orchestra Victoria, Luke Howard & Leonard Grigoryan. The trio have played together in numerous projects over 16 years. Experience the rich, diverse and interdisciplinary music emerging from the Melbourne creative jazz scene.

SPARTACUS COLLECTIVE is a solo drum set project devised by/for Melbourne drummer/composer Ronny Ferella along with the three musicians from Antelodic.

Conceived by drummer/composer Ronny Ferella this project flips the traditional roles of the usual instrumental hierarchy and highlights the drumset as a tonal instrument that can adapt to the requirements of the music on hand.

“There is a translucency to these compositions that is quite mesmerising. Monty Mackenzie and Gideon Brazil seemed to revel in the technical and tonal demands required to achieve the subtlety and grace demanded by Robbie Melville’s compositions” - Paul Simmons

Spartacus Collective:
The project is the outcome of many years of research and practice into the idea of “playing the drum set in tune”. Not as a tuned instrument where the drums are true to a certain pitch but as a tonal instrument where the drummer leads the audience’s ear (and his own) to the conclusion that he is playing in tune with the group through deep listening and intentional touch response.

The collective comprises of a drum set with accompaniment from an ensemble of woodwinds and electric guitar utilising a combination of written notation and improvised material.
