Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra
Having recently returned from performing in Berlin and New York, OK OK OK is a Melbourne-based collaborative project formed in 2007 consisting of composers/musicians Sophia Exiner (piano/toy piano), Joshua Teicher (electric guitar/effects) and Josh Holt (double bass).
On their new release “Searching, Finding’ (2010) the trio capture the broad brushstrokes of a film score together with lashings of playfulness, humour, art and improvisation. Exiner's blend of traditional jazz elements and contemporary extended technique combine with Teicher's electronic soundscapes and rock- based guitar playing and Holt's rich, warm presence, making for an intoxicating mix.

“Combines elegance and a non-shouting edginess.”
Doug Spencer, Weekend Planet ABC Radio National
… a considered journey through the myriad compositional and performance styles of Sophia Exiner, Joshua Teicher and Josh Holt.
