/// MEATSHELL is the experimental-folk duo of Helen Svoboda (contrabass/voice) and Andrew Saragossi (tenor saxophone).
The name encompasses the physicality, intensity and vulnerability of playing with two. With a shared curiosity for the subtle beauty of things, the pair combines traditional song forms and unconventional instrumental techniques, emphasising the power of story-telling through sound. Infused with elements of minimalism, improvisation and contemporary jazz, the music is raw and exposed, yet full-bodied and perpetual, propelled by the momentum of the human heartbeat. //
Meatshell’s debut album “Afar” was released in June 2019, through Australian independent label MADE NOW MUSIC. Recorded at Daltoon Studio in Eindhoven, NL, the music is a manifestation and embodiment of the duo’s personal experiences in leaving behind the comfort and familiarity of home, exploring themes of fear, uncertainty, risk and limitless possibility. “Afar" isn’t your father’s jazz album, nor does it fit comfortably into subgenre molds... but it’s undeniably a fantastic album exploring the fringes of jazz, modern classical and post-minimalism, coming from some of the Australian scene’s exciting young talents. Jazz or not, it’s certainly worth your time and attention." - Scott Murphy (Heavy Blog is Heavy) 2019
