Led by Melbourne improviser/composer Reuben Lewis, I Hold the Lion's Paw represents a larger collective that has made music together for several years, and was the inaugural recipient of The Lebowski's Creative Development Residency in 2017.

Expect to hear anything from harmonious free-floating melodies, electro-acoustic noise, slowly shifting tectonic plates of sound, grungy grooves, afro-beat and free jazz. 

"Abstract Playgrounds conjures its own unique rhythmic universe, spurred on by an unfettered belief in improvisation and group dynamics. It’s a high-wire act, made possible by the fact that IHTLP is awash with first-rank improvisers. As a unit, they have developed an in-built elasticity, a capacity for moving in any direction, together or separately at will, but always in service to the music." - Des Cowley
