A rising star in modern jazz, Australian producer, pianist and composer Stu Hunter made his breakthrough with his lauded album, the muse (2007), followed by the award-winning sophomore suite, the gathering (2010) which The Australian declared “a milestone in contemporary jazz”. Premiered at the Sydney Festival earlier this year, the migration is a hard-grooving, soul-searching and cascading response to modern life, love and cultural complexity, performed with a masterful ten-piece band.
 
Commissioned in part by SIMA with the support of the Australia Council, we are thrilled to present this trailblazing work in partnership with the Seymour Centre. Besides his own projects, Hunter has made a name behind the scenes accompanying the likes of Passenger, Silverchair and Katie Noonan.
