Air Mass

Air Mass will be a new show and album by award-winning artist Nick Russoniello

Blending audience-generated soundscapes, live-looping, sampling, multitrack recording, body percussion and physical gesture; Air Mass will intersect digital technology with performance art to imagine future possibilities of solo saxophone performance. Instrumental virtuosity, lyricism and groove will meet in a powerful audience experience.  This digital deep dive will be presented across NSW 2025 and released as an album by Da Vinci Classics.

Can You Help?

You can make a tax-deductable donation to support the Air Mass project. Your donation will:

• Help to tour Air Mass right around NSW and then around the country. It will allow Air Mass to get to remote areas that don’t get enough live music performance. 

• Allow Air Mass to be recorded so that it can be released as a broadcast quality album.

• Allow Air Mass to be filmed. High quality video demo is expensive but essential to securing more performances of a work.
