Psychopyjama is very proud to announce the first release of a unique musical force. Tabua-Harrison makes music that is both completely improvised and absolutely accessible, with the visceral energy of rock, metal and funk and the intricacy and surprise of contemporary art music. Resident Psychopyjama artwork maestro Ryszard Dabek says of their debut album, Scout, “at times the duo’s work recalls other high-wire improv pairings such as John Coltrane and Rashied Ali on Interstellar Space as much as the restless creativity of Battles and the post-rock guitar stylings of Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker.”
Drummer Holly Harrison is one of Australia’s foremost young composers. As we write this, she is furiously composing for a commission for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. Her work has been commissioned and performed by ensembles across Australia, Europe, the US and Asia. The rhythmic complexity and polyphonic independence of her art music is really an outgrowth of her phenomenal drumming, which really has to be seen to be believed. Partner in crime Joseph Tabua refers to her as “endorphin machine” on the album’s liner notes.
