Can beautiful music, high definition widescreen images and climate change work???
It sure can!
A unique, highly entertaining musical journey telling the story of our changing climate, 'Music for a Warming World' is a wonderfully refreshing mix of original folk, reggae and world music. Combine this with high quality video and images makes it a truly memorable and inspiring event. Sing with the band, laugh, disappear into the lush world of the projected images, and leave with hope for a better world.
7pm - Eco-Set
But wait! You also get the incomparable Mal Webb! with Kylie Morrigan.
Around the world and into your brain, vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentalist and looping beatboxing songwriter Mal Webb sings his songs about all manner of stuff, using all sorts of vocal techniques, guitar, mbira, slide trumpet, trombone, chromatic harmonica and a loop recording pedal called Derek. It's a lip to lung journey through the physics, physiology and phrivolity of all the sounds a face can make. Sideways yodelling, beatbox, harmonics, throat singing, uvular fluttering, advanced clapping.
He's like Bobby McFerrin, Aphex Twin and Cole Porter playing scrabble. Ebulliently eclectic. Nefariously varied. Family fun free from facile frippery. "You're a freak!"- Ani DiFranco.
Simon Kerr, already a prolific song writer with three studio albums, dreamt up this show in 2015 from a desire to use art, music and science to tell stories. Along with Christine Parker, an academic at the University of Melbourne, and now VJ, they have taken this show to dozens of audiences around Australia. Joined by Violinist Kylie Morrigan, Keys player Scott Lewis, Beat-box/Trombonist/all-round-musical-legend Mal Webb, and Brisbane Bass Player Rob Wheelers, their energy and combined musicality will leave you pleading for more.
This event is a benefit for Green Music Australia, to help them build a musicians' movement to protect the planet. As well as performing on the night, Green Music Australia's Tim Hollo will talk briefly about what the organisation is doing, how people can take part, and ask for contributions to support their work.
So join us for a visually immersive eco-music experience of the climate ‘storm’, social change and a compelling vision of hope for a better future.
The music, the big screen, the beats, the friends … the best way to spend a Saturday night!
