Internationally renowned Australian pianist and composer Chris Cody presents his 11th album Astrolabe alongside his all-star band featuring some of the country’s finest jazz musicians. 

A powerful musical journey, Astrolabe is inspired by French navigator La Pérouse’s voyage to Australia on the ship Astrolabe in 1788. Pérouse arrived in Botany Bay only six days after the First Fleet and vanished just weeks after leaving Australian shores. Cody says, “I found the voyage resonated with my own voyage to France and later back to Australia. I was challenged to grow as a musician and explore my identity and dreams. Both our stories share themes of old world versus new, the unknown, the meetings of different cultures, and of loss, death and disappearance. And ultimately, of hope and continuation.”

“Enthralling tribute to French explorer…startlingly effective music” – Sydney Morning Herald

“Beautifully meditative…sublime…wonderful…a thrilling musical voyage” – Loudmouth Magazine
