Celebrating over 30 years of improvising a new piece of music every time they step on stage

Forming in Sydney Australia in 1986, over the last 33 years The Necks have built an international reputation as masters of their own musical language of long-form improvisation. Each night they step onto the stage with no pre-conceived ideas of what they will play – they and the audience will go on a sonic journey that is created in the moment and in that room.

They have been touring Europe for over 20 years, with additional occasional special projects and collaborations with Brian Eno, Swans, Ilan Volkov and symphony orchestras, Evan Parker, Karl Hyde, Leo Abrahams, and opening for Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. In 2019 they have collaborated with Underworld on music/video series and new album, and with Michael Gira on the Swans ‘Leaving Meaning’ released October 2019.

Every Necks’ performance is a singular event, entirely improvised and working with the acoustics of the room.
