From Sydney, Australia Comes MACHINISO...

The brainchild of drummer, percussionist and digital artist RichMachine, Machiniso has its roots

in experimental, cinematic, jazz and electronic music. Having a DVD and CD release to date, the

new four song EP is now completed and features Anne-Lise Larsen on vocals.

The addition of Anne-Lise to Machiniso's rhythmn and vibraphone combo takes this acoustic

band to a new level of sofistication. As a solo artist, Anne-Lise's song writing skills have

redefined Machiniso's sexy, sultry and sometimes noirish flavour. Her skills don't end there. She

is also a professionally trained cellist and who knows, the band's Hollywood element may soon

include the 'strings of suspense' at a later date.

On bass, Scott Leishman - With years of experience as a guitarist playing with Jacky Orzasky,

Tina Harrod and a number of diverse Sydney acts, Scott is not only a solid and depndable live

player, but an original contributer to the band's studio projects showing his ability to adapt to any


Celestial Dave Smith on Vibraphone - With ensemble, big band and electronic projects under his

belt, Dave is a music teacher and improv master supplying backing vibes and percussion for

poets and performance artists. The sonic qualities of his tuned percussion give Machiniso its

trademark sound of exotica. Dave has also teamed up with RicMachine and Mark Island for a number of live and studio sessions over 12 years of collaboration.

The MACHINISO quartet are ready to play. As a support or headline act, this group's original

sound is influenced by world music, jazz, popular culture and cinema. Backing up the original

material are a variety of funky, swingin' and groovy jazz standards.

Consider Machiniso Sydney's freshest, new combo.
