Composer, trumpeter and sound artist, Peter Knight, joins us in the station for a Studio 5 Live performance on Impressions. 

Knight is a multidisciplinary musician who has gained wide acclaim for his distinctive approach, which integrates jazz, experimental, and world music traditions. Knight's work as both performer and composer is regularly featured in a range of ensemble settings, he also composes for theatre, creates sound installations, and is the Artistic Director of one of Australia’s leading contemporary music ensembles, the Australian Art Orchestra (AAO).

Perpetually curious, Knight’s practice defies categorisation; indeed he works in the spaces between categories, between genres, and between cultures: “Hard to categorise… hauntingly memorable” The Wire (UK). “If trumpet is an element then Knight is an alchemist” New York City Jazz Record.
