An incredible and not-to-be-missed line-up of Australia’s finest musicians comes to MPavilion. As spatial audio becomes more accessible to artists, the sonic palette of all genres of musical live performance has expanded to include “space and sometimes movement”. Yamaha Music Australia presents this special public event exploring the new horizons that spatial audio affords musicians and composers. A custom designed Yamaha wave-field synthesis sound system provides the spatial canvas for six musical acts ranging from chamber orchestra through to jazz trio, electro glitch-funk and beyond.
Spoonbill will round out a massive summer of festival-closing sets by demonstrating his unique and much-loved style of electronic drumming. Cookin’ On 3 Burners will play their famous funk-soul boogaloo. Turret Truck—featuring Phillip Brophy on drums, Bill McDonald on bass and Dave Brown on guitar—will go adventuring (sonically) with their set-up of software synths, effects pedals and triggered samples. LAPKAT (sound artist Lisa Greenaway, who has also composed the ||Reflections|| sound ritual that plays each day at MPavilion) will transport us into a vivid dream of wind, water and rain from Sydney to Budapest. OK EG will perform a new set for analogue synth, sampler and vocals.; and the New Palm Court Orchestra will navigate jazz, classical and world influences, led by pianist Gemma Turvey.
