Compass Quartet – Oneirology CD Launch

Following on from their critically acclaimed 2009 debut album Abrazo Tango (Tall Poppies), and the APRA/MCA Art Music Award nominated Jazz Work of the Year from their 2011 album Ode to an Auto Rickshaw (Earshift Records/Fuse Music), the group now presents an intriguing collaboration with jazz pianist Jackson Harrison.

The new album Oneirology (~ study of dreams), features Rose’s new suite for the ensemble Oneirology Suite, based on the Christopher Nolan film Inception. The work explores themes taken from the film in a musical context such as dream within a dream, deja vu and subconsciousness. The work forms part of Rose’s PhD studies at the Sydney Conservatorium under the supervision of Matthew Hindson. Jackson Harrison also contributes his piece Charcoal Chorale to the album, creating a unique collection of Australian compositions.
