Biography

Bucketrider have distinguished themselves as one of the most innovative and challenging contemporary music ensembles in Australia. Founded nearly a decade ago by David Brown, Sean Baxter and Tim O’Dwyer, the group has been at the forefront of experimental music in Melbourne since its inception. As adept in the rarefied realms of improvisation and new music as they are with the raw energy of free jazz and punk rock, bucketrider fuse these disparate styles into a coherent and exciting whole. Intent on breaching the artificial boundaries that exist between so-called serious and popular music, they have successfully introduced rock audiences to the energy of free jazz, jazz audiences to the vibrancy of punk, and classical audiences to the delights of contemporary improvisation. In addition to this specialised repertoire, bucketrider have also gained a reputation in Melbourne’s pub music scene as a dynamic and exciting live act. They have been instrumental in cultivating a creative dialogue between the avant garde and indie rock scenes in Melbourne and are just as likely to perform alongside alternative rock bands as they are to appear at jazz and new music festivals.
Their collaborations with new music composer Kate Neal (Hyrax) and the contemporary dance group, Dance Works (Funky and Freezing) at the 2000 Melbourne International Festival were runaway successes, highlighting the band’s adaptability and talent with captivating and passionate performances.
