Australian trumpeter, composer, and sound artist Peter Knight is a multidisciplinary musician who has gained wide acclaim for his distinctive approach that integrates jazz, experimental and world music traditions. Peter’s work as both performer and composer is regularly featured in a range of ensemble settings, he also composes for theatre and creates sound installations.
Perpetually curious, Peter’s practice defies categorisation. He works in the spaces between categories, between genres and between cultures: “Hard to categorise… hauntingly memorable,” The Wire (UK). “Falling into an utterly genre-less wormhole,” Cyclic Defrost. “Honest, inventive and original,” Hour Magazine Montreal. “A serious work of stringent originality,” Jazz on 3. “If trumpet is an element then Knight is an alchemist,” New York City Jazz Record.
