David Jones returns to Mona Foma Festival 2018
David returns to Mona Foma with 2 eclectic projects: Stillness, A Man and One Instrument and Zappa Recital with Italy’s Alessandra Garosi and Melbourne’s Adam Simmons.
Stillness, A Man and One Instrument
A master-drummer responds to the art of Mona in situ.
David will appear twice a day in the Mona Museum, popping up with one instrument and playing for half an hour in a meditative state. He will use a different instrument each time, showcasing the unique sounds, timbres and extended techniques that David is renowned for. David’s exciting DVD “Drumscapes” will be available at the Festival, along with his 3rd Ear CD.

Zappa in Recital
The music of art rocker Frank Zappa (and other Zappa-inspired compositions), rearranged for an unusual piano, saxophone and drums trio. Alessandra Garosi (Italy) on piano, Adam Simmons (Melbourne) on saxophones and David Jones on drum kit. The synergy between the 3 musicians is vibrant. This project was a sellout in their last appearance at the Melbourne Recital Centre – the live recording of that performance will be available on CD at the Festival. Powerful, dynamic, humourous, zany and inspired music-making.
