Lighting the Sails: Audio Creatures

Sydney Only - Directed by Ash Bolland. Music by Amon Tobin. Visual content + animation by Spinfex.

Tableaux that evoke colourful sea creatures, vibrant plant life and a sleek, organic/mechanistic chrome future projected onto the Sydney Opera House will be the number one way to deep dive into the beautiful world of colour and light this Vivid LIVE.

Breath-takingly imaginative Sydney creative Ash Bolland presents Creatures, paired with tailor-made soundscapes by Brazil’s foremost sound designer Amon Tobin. Bolland initially honed his skills in detailed, precise 3D art and striking graphic design before working as a writer and director for Nintendo and more of the world’s biggest ad campaigns. Amon Tobin’s career in electronic music and audio manipulation spans over 20 years, most famously through his spikey, propulsive, uncompromising work for Ninja Tune and on the Cannes Palme d'Or nominated film, Divine Intervention.

This year, the pair will collaborate on a visceral, visionary work to transporting onlookers of Jorn Utzon’s infamous sails to a parallel universe beneath the harbour line and beyond the jungle walls.
