Jason Noble


Jason Noble is one of Australia’s most versatile clarinettists, spanning the classical to highly experimental and improvisatory genres. As a core member of Ensemble Offspring for about 20 years, Jason has performed contemporary new music at festivals from Warsaw to London, Shanghai to Kabul, and around Australia, working largely with living composers. His album releases include THRUM (2020) – a collection of improvised ambient sounds created with Kim Cunio on piano – and Chi’s Cakewalk (2017), an album of new Australian works for clarinets. He has also made guest appearances on albums for Gurrumul, Sally Seltmann, ABC Classics, Paul Mac, Gondwana Voices, Ngarukuruwala and Halcyon. Jason collaborates with emerging composers, and is an in-demand music educator and examiner. He has been invited to teach two winter academies at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul, and maintains links with staff and students there. www.jasonnoble-clarinettist.com
