Forming in Sydney Australia in 1986, over the last 30 years The Necks have built an international reputation as masters of their own musical language of long-form improvisation. Each night they step onto the stage with no pre-conceived ideas of what they will play – they and the audience go on a sonic journey that is created in the moment and in that room.
Over their years together, they have honed an assured process of building around repeated motifs through subtle shifts and layering, to produce an extraordinarily dense and hypnotic effect which builds in a mesmerising, epic fashion… a trio conjuring an orchestral expanse.
Every Necks performance is a singular event, entirely improvised and working with the acoustics of the room.
…the greatest trio on earth. New York Times
