Multi-award-winning, critically acclaimed composer and electric bassist Ross McHenry has maintained an international profile through recordings on two London-based labels, with The Shaolin Afronauts (an Adelaide-based instrumental afrobeat band) having 4 albums on Freestyle Records between 2011 and 2022, and 4 albums under McHenry’s leadership on the London-based First World Records between 2013 and 2020 (featuring American artists such as Eric Harland and Marcus Strickland).

He returns to Melbourne for a rare live performance alongside leading figure of the underground UK and South Australian creative music scene, saxophonist Derek Pascoe. Having collaborated intermittently for more than ten years, this new collaboration combines free improvisation with experimental electronic synthesis in a unique format that explores the cross section of the pairs combined musical history across their many solo and ensemble releases.
