Channelfree is a band dedicated to creation, over replication... blending elements of traditional instruments with new technology, playing 'in the moment soundscape groove'..fusing organic funky tribal with dance/dub overtones.
The line-up is ever evolving, drawing on an ever widening crew of musicians who have lent their talents to the groove.. Channelfree have been appearing at festivals up & down the East Coast , including, Splendour in the Grass, Winter Solstice, Bush-week, Exodus, Earthfreq, Utribe, Southern Oracle, Secret Sessions, Ukitopia etc) holding the space for musicians of all genres to co create phat grooves together.
Channelfree is hosted by Sanne Kenna & Jake Mann & the line up is often an 'all star' cast of other musicians from other bands who love to co create & jam.
Music that is created 'in the moment' has an energy, a spark, that often is lost in rehearsed replicated sets.
Channelfree is a platform for seasoned musicians to showcase their intuitive, responsive musical selves, a real treat for the audience to witness fresh spontaneous music.
