Brendan Keller-Tuberg is an emerging bassist and composer, and final year student at the ANU School of Music. Since entering the course in 2014, he has established himself as a regular performer in the region, having played with Miroslav Bukovsky, John Mackey and Paul Grabowsky. Most recently, he has returned from the Jacobs School of Music, Indiana, having studied under jazz heavyweights such as Walter Smith III and Steve Houghton.
Though he has strived for versatility in all styles of music-making, Brendan has always had a passion for modern jazz composition. Influenced by cutting-edge piano trios such as The Bad Plus and the Vijay Iyer Trio, he honed his compositional abilities and aesthetic through 2015 and 2016, culminating in the recording of his first full-length album in December 2016 with the help of the Friends of the School of Music. Recorded at the School of Music by Louis Montgomery, and featuring recent ANU alumni Tate Sheridan and Daniel Faber, the album represents Brendan’s first effort at presenting the music he’s always dreamed of making – historically informed and conceptually sophisticated, yet personal and emotionally intimate.
