“an improvised reverie of centuries past" – John Shand


In 2015, Paul Cutlan launched his first String Project album to a capacity SIMA audience left in raptures.

In 2018, Paul Cutlan’s String Project is back with a new work that reflects on the centenary of the ‘war to end all wars’.

Imagine the refined sounds of a string quartet improvising exquisite textures alongside the dark ruminations of double bass and bass clarinet, played by two of Australia’s most experienced jazz musicians.

This is the sound world created by Paul Cutlan’s String Project.
