Antelodic – Lagom (not too much, not too little)


Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre &


Cinematic sound worlds of orchestral scope.

Antelodic is an instrumental chamber jazz trio featuring the unusual instrumentation of guitar with two saxophones. The woodwinds often perform the role of rhythm section, allowing the guitar to become the melodic voice. The trio have developed a highly nuanced approach to their creative practice that allows them to experiment in the moment while maintaining a unified ensemble sound.

About the concert

Their performance in Primrose Potter Salon presents music from their two albums Quiet Sufficient and To Iceland! To Iceland! alongside a premiere of Declan Postlethwaite’s Lagom, a composition commissioned by University of Melbourne and Melbourne Recital Centre.

Antelodic released their debut album Quiet Sufficient in March 2017. The majority of the album was written in a six-month period following the birth of Melville’s second daughter. This time of joy and introspection, combined with the necessity of quietude, resulted in an album of gentle, restrained reveries. The release of To Iceland! To Iceland! in 2020 included an arrangement of the Icelandic hymn Heyr Himna Smiður.

Join the trio for an evening of cinematic sound worlds of orchestral scope.
