Art of the Possible presents a collection of jazz ensembles from the Elder Conservatorium’s Jazz Department.
Act 1: KAZIMIERZ
KAZIMIERZ is the brainchild of Miles Kazimierz Farnan. Taking the production mindset of artists like Flying Lotus and Clever Austin, KAZIMIERZ aims to create intense electronic based music live. Compositions by Miles written with the help of Dan Isler and Giacomo Guttilla.

Act 2: Minnie Little and Friends
Minnie Little and Friends is a pop/jazz/funk collaboration that features 4/5 of the musicians from the folk/prog/jazz-identifying group Minnie Little. The music is written by bassist Tasha Stevens, taking inspiration from the characters of people around her and inviting the audience to meet those in her life through sweet vocal and instrumental harmony.

Georgia Turner – vocals
Kara Manansala – vocals
Ciara Ferguson – piano

Act 3: Sauce Code
Sauce Code is a group dedicated to showcasing an eclectic assembly of weird and wacky original compositions, with the sole vision of injecting some life and personality into everything we play (don’t let Lenny’s love of aubergine cultivation throw you off). With Harrison on the acoustic crowd pleaser, Angus on the goose modulators (plural), Andrew on the digital ivory simulator, Lenny on the dead tree and Miles on the self-serve anger management kit, it’s everything you’ve ever dreamed of, and if not, then you need to get your priorities in order.
Harrison Smith – trumpet
Angus Graham – saxophones
Andrew Casey – keyboards
Lenny Regione – bass
Miles Farnan – drums
