|Playing with Bach|
After an extensive sabbatical exploring the music and life of JS Bach Soprano saxophonist Fiona Burnett takes the audience on an improvised journey exploring themes and musical ideas inspired by the Baroque era. The development of these improvisations form part of the final stages of a practice led research PhD study at the Faculty of Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne examining a phenomenological enquiry into the musical influence of eighteenth century Bach on the musical language of a twenty first century improviser.

|January 2009 in Hobart|
Fiona Burnett will perform the very exciting and innnovative and cutting edge MONA Festival of Art and Music in Hobart taking workshops from 5th-9th January and performing with David Jones on Friday 9th Jan at Salamanca Place and 10th January at the Peacock Theatre. See www.mofo.net.au for more info.
Violent Femmes bassist - and longtime Tasmanian resident - Brian Ritchie, is curating a new festival to be held in Tasmania only.
Dubbed the MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) Festival of Music and Art, the event happens in and around Hobart city between January 9-15 2009, and will feature both sound and visual artists from all over the world. We're talking Italy, France, Tunisia, the USA, Spain, Mali, the Netherlands, Canada and Germany. Even better, the whole festival (apart from one particular headliner) is FREE. *Golf clap*
Ritchie says the aim of the festival is to: embrace the new and be provocative. "MONA FOMA is not genre-based" he says. "Rather it's based on a philosophy, or perhaps an attitude – musicians and artists taking their vision to the limits of their field of endeavour".
"We want people to hear music they've never experienced before and see art they didn't know could exist. We have workshops, exhibits, concerts and installations that are accessible to anybody with the curiosity to seek it out."
