Curator's note - Vivid LIVE 2017
For nine years Vivid LIVE at Sydney Opera House has been a haven and a home for the gold-standard and the cutting-edge in local & international contemporary music – presented by taking over a building that symbolises the liberating power of art. I’m proud to be part of this continuum, announcing my third program for this remarkable festival celebrating artists and their communities – especially those in Sydney – that comprise a critical part of our musical ecosystem and remain uncompromising in their hunger for excellence and ambition.
Having witnessed Sydney creative Ash Bolland’s work for a long time, it’s also a great honour to have his mesmerising Audio Creatures on our sails with commissioned music by Vivid LIVE alumni and powerful iconoclastic electronic producer, Amon Tobin.
