DAVID JONES – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
6 – 8 MAY 2019
Internationally acclaimed musician David Jones takes residence at The Lock-Up delivering a special gig alongside some of Newcastle’s finest musicians.
The University of Newcastle’s Conservatorium of Music in partnership with The Lock Up are excited to present this recognised musician.
David is often described both here and abroad as being one of the most innovative and musical drummers in the world. His mesmerising drum solos are dramatic, humorous, surprising and powerful. In the hands (and feet) of David Jones, the drum kit comes alive as a mini-orchestra, vaudeville act, rhythmic explosion and hypnotic trance-inducer, all in one.
Using sticks, brushes, mallets, fingers, elbows, violin bow, dish-mops, toys, brooms and any percussion he can lay his hands on, David creates a universe of sounds, textures and rhythms that take you through different cultures, ages, moods and styles.
This residency is made possible through the The Lock-Up’s partnership with The School of Creative Industries, University of Newcastle.
