ONCE THE QUINTESSENTIAL ‘BUSH DOOF’, FRACTANGULAR HAS MATURED INTO A FULLY FLEDGED ALTERNATIVE MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL HERE IN TASMANIA. WITH ELECTRONIC DANCE MUSIC STILL VERY MUCH AT THE CORE, THE FESTIVAL HAS EXPANDED ITS ‘LIVE MUSIC’ OFFERING, ADDED A CIRCUS COMPONENT AND GROWN ITS ARTS PROGRAM.

Like its bigger mainland cousins, Rainbow Serpent and Maitreya, Fractangular has deep roots in the global electronic trance scene that encompasses the Earth through both the artists playing and nomadic travellers heading from one exotic location to the next. Tasmania has now been added to this map.

The electronic stage for 2015 will be headlined bytechno and trance Producers Perfect Stranger (Israel),Electrypnose(Switzerland) and Talpa (Serbia), plus glitch/dubstep producersOpiuo (New Zealand) and Beats Fatigue (Netherlands) so far announced. Established Australian DJs and producers, Terrafractyl, Shadow FX, Ryanosaurus, Legohead, Positive Thought, Legacy and Ozzy all feature alongside Tasmania’s best home grown talent.

Entertainment on the ‘live stage’ has doubled with national acts so far announced including, Puta Madre Brothers, Bob Log III, Blunderbuss, Ganga Giri, Crooked Fiddle Band and Combat Wombat.

Added to this are local musicians Brian Ritchie, GuerillaZingari, Taiko Drummers, The Lawless Quartet, Sin and Tonics, Brad Gillies, Daniel Townsend, Helen Crowther and The Dead Maggies.

What has made the festival even more well-rounded is the inclusion of a performing arts program with performances by Australia’s legendary street buskerDeadly Serious, Ivana B Serious, Pop Up Shell, Mez, Sands Family Circus andCirc’S’Cool Flying Trapeze plus sideshow displays. The 2015 Workshopsprogram has evolved to cover visual arts, craft, music and health including massage, yoga, tai chi, circus, acrobalance and flying trapeze.

The entire site will be decked out with a variety of installation art visible both in the day and night, and for the first time an Art Trail will feature, with submissions open to the general public. The Art Trail carries a first prize of $500 judged by a panel.

To enter, head over to the Fractangular website, http://www.fractangular.com.au

The festival is all ages (with parental supervision) and set up to be family friendly, with separate family camping grounds and a kids play zone. A market precinct is a buzzing hub of food, arts, crafts, clothes, incense, buskers, coffee, kids and The Velveteen Lounge and Bar – a warm and friendly space to engage in or just kick back and watch it all dance by.

First round and second roung tickets to the festival have already sold out, third round tickets are currently on sale until sold out, these are limited.

Fractangular runs from February 6 - 8 at Buckland in the State’s South East. Tickets are on sale now from The Homestead, Ruffcut Records and online from http://www.moshtix.com.au

Artist’s statement

Born in Bialystok, Poland, I spent my childhood in the countryside surrounded by beautiful meadows, fields and forests. I completed High School in Warsaw and graduated from the Warsaw Agricultural University with a Science Masters Degree in Food Technology and Human Nutrition. I worked for several years as a Lecturer and Research Assistant at the Medical Academy in Warsaw.

While in Poland I learned about all forms of art through exhibitions, theatres, museums and books on art history. At this time I tried to express my fascination with art by writing somewhat juvenile, romantic poems. But the seed was planted when I discovered the book by David Weiss ‘Naked came I’ about Auguste Rodin, and the following year (1974) I visited the Rodin Museum in Paris. It was an unforgettable experience.

In the 1970s the political and economic situation in Communist Poland was gradually deteriorating. In 1977 I decided to leave Poland in a quest for freedom, settled in Sydney, where I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Nutrition and Dietetics at the Sydney University, and worked for some years as a dietitian.

During this time, I discovered a new freedom in visual art, exploring the world of two dimensions by using simple lines, colours, ink and textures, and in 3D by modelling in clay/wax, casting in various materials, carving or welding.

Above all, I am aiming for simplicity and honesty in the medium.

Tasmania, where I arrived in 1999, inspired my quest in abstraction. I have always believed in what Piet Mondrian said, “Abstraction has emphasised the old truth that art must be universal, just as true reality is.”

Simonz Says and Sings!

Paula Xiberras
21.11.14 6:43 am

Photo credit: Nate Hill

The name Simon means ‘he has heard’ and in the case of Julian Simonsz it’s a case of he has been heard.

Our first glimpse of Julian was on this year’s ‘The Voice’ the culmination of four years of taking singing seriously. We were captivated by his voice and also by the story of the wonderful romance between he and his wife Nelu. Their story is one that the magic of Hollywood loves, meeting at 2 years of age when their families settled in Australia, their families looked out for each other. Over time the two youngsters lost contact to be reunited again about 17 years later. Romance and marriage followed.

Julian’s new song ‘I did it for you’ was originally written for Nelu, and is a song about appreciating the women in our lives who may often be taken for granted and also about celebrating life.

Julian, before he was a singer, worked in the technical aspects of music, with a bachelor of Audio Production from a South Australian Institute. The fact Julian knows the business from this view point and is competent on the engineering side of things helps his musical and vocal work as well.  If being in involved in both the technical side of the music industry and being performer/songwriter has any drawback it’s that having an engineering background can sometimes make one fall “into the trap” of attempting to bring technical perfection to song writing which often doesn’t work as writing is a more emotional process but Julian has managed to avoid this trap.

Of his experience on ‘The Voice’, Julian says it was easier with the judges ‘not facing you’ and that being on ‘The Voice’ gave him, as well as a surreal experience, “a great platform and great exposure to kick start his career” and see him “doing corporate gigs”.

Although Julian hasn’t been to Tassie yet, planning a national tour he would love to include us.

It was a dream come true when on Oct 16 Julian performed his first gig with a band at the Northcote social club in Melbourne.

LEO SAYER TAKES HIS GREATEST HITS AND RESTLESS YEARS ON THE ROAD IN 2015!

Rina Ferris & Kristyn Brennan - Ferris Davies PRM
21.11.14 6:31 am

image

Grammy Award-winning international superstar, Leo Sayer, today announced details of the Restless Years Tour 2015, his first solo national Australian tour in over four years.

The Restless Years Tour kicks off on 4 February and will take in over 30 theatres across the country with Leo delivering his legendary hit-packed live show as well as launching his latest album, Restless Years, scheduled for release on 23 January 2015.

With over 80 million albums sold worldwide, 25 Top 10 international hits, 5 Top 10 albums and writing credits for the likes of Roger Daltrey, Cliff Richard, Dolly Parton and Tina Turner, Leo Sayer’s career has been one of stellar proportions. 

From his first big single, The Show Must Go On, from the hit debut album, Silverbird (1973), Leo Sayer has had a seemingly never ending stream of hits - One Man Band, Long Tall Glasses, Moonlighting, You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, When I Need You, Thunder in My Heart and More Than I Can Say all topped the charts in the 70’s and 80’s.  His most recent UK No. 1 came in 2006 with a remix of Thunder in My Heart, introducing a whole new generation to the magic of Leo Sayer.

With over 40 years of recording and touring the globe behind him, Leo Sayer is showing no signs of slowing down, always living by his motto “The Show Must Go On”.

Leo added, “I’m really excited to be starting 2015 with a big national tour and my new album ‘Restless Years’.  We’ve got a great band and new material, a bunch of classic hits and I’m raring to go. See you soon!”

Leo Sayer’s new album Restless Years, to be released in January, 2015, was recorded in ARIA Award winner, Mitch Cairns’ Little Red Jet Studio and was mixed by the legendary John Hudson of London’s Mayfair Studios who, like Leo, now calls Australia home.

Tickets for the Restless Years Tour go on sale from 10.00am local time, Monday, 24 November 2014 (excluding Seymour Centre, which go on sale on Wednesday, 26 November).

Shakespearean Soprano a Siren Songbird

Paula Xiberras
20.11.14 6:00 am

image

This week i had the opportunity to catch up with the lovely Marina Prior and chat with her about her upcoming Tassie tour.

The name Marina means ‘from the sea’ and it’s an appropriate name for one who has the voice of an ocean siren that could enchant the most cynical sailor!

Ironically enough you can also discover a Marina in Shakespeare’s ‘Pericles’, where the character is noted for her musical abilities.

Marina says that of Tasmania, ‘she doesn’t get here often enough’, and when she does it is usually for work so she is delighted that a day off between her Launceston and Hobart shows will give her the chance to explore, and on the cards are a visit to MONA and a chance for this siren to indulge in seafood, especially crayfish!

It’s always been music for Marina, with parents active in amateur Gilbert and Sullivan she tells me she could ‘never, ever’ think of any other career and that music is not just a profession but ‘who I am’.

For the concerts in Tasmania be prepared for a few surprises, not just the musical theatre we know Marina so well for,although that will be celebrated, but expect also ‘all different kinds of music’, from the folk of Joni Mitchell and Cat Stevens, Celtic including both Scottish and Irish music to Marina’s own musical theatre favourites like ‘Phantom of the Opera’, a show that was significant for Marina’s career but something you may not expect and might be pleasantly shocked by is Marina playing guitar, which of course is how it all began for Marina as a busker.

Although ‘Phantom of the Opera’ is significant for Marina she says she doesn’t have a favourite song but it depends on her mood and place she is at.

Demonstrating her diverse talents Mariana will next be performing in ‘Jumpy’ a comedy play with Jane Turner that will see her travel from Melbourne to The Sydney Opera House. For the Soprano performing in a non-musical play will be in some ways a break, as Marina says she won’t have to be concerned with the taxing schedule of a musical or having to be cautious of catching a voice disrupting cold from other cast members!

You can see Marina Prior Songbird at Launceston Country Club on Friday 5 December and at Wrest Point Casino on Saturday the 6 of December.

The stories of two men, two generations: common experiences.

Told in theatre, song and images by renowned musical ensemble Silkweed with two outstanding actors.

This Sunday 23rd November, The Rosny Barn will host music ensemble Silkweed’s current production: “Letters from a Distant Heart”

Based on real letters from an Australian POW in Japanese camps and juxtaposed with the story, also told through letters, of an asylum seeker in Australian immigration detention.

The stories of the two men divided by seventy years yet somehow parallel circumstances, is woven through with Silkweed’s original music and outstanding images.

The performance also features original poetry in Hazarigi (with translations on screen) by Shoukat Shauor an esteemed Hazara poet from Pakistan, now living and working in Hobart.

Previously featured at festivals in southern Tasmania and the ACT, Sunday’s show will be the only and final performance in Tasmania.

6pm Sunday 23rd November, Rosny Historic Barn

Dear friends and colleagues - I need your valuable assistance :-)

We are entering the final exciting week of this landmark production of Jesus Christ Superstar - just five shows remaining between this evening and Saturday, all at 8 PM at the Theatre Royal.

Universal glowing praise for the production and 5 star reviews from our patrons have kept it exciting for all involved and we really look forward to delivering a knockout final week. A week for which there are still great seats available.

The promotional budget is exhausted - we have a hit on our hands - we want to keep in the limelight on Jesus Christ Superstar in a very busy news week for Tasmania… Anything you can do to push it on social media or talk it up and keep it “word of mouth” and in the news will be gratefully and sincerely appreciated.

“PRAISE BE TO SUPERSTAR. ...lucid and powerful… A story that ripples across two millennia… And it is epic.” - The Mercury

Great seats available - BOOK AT

Reviewed! Burlesk As You Like It!

Amber Wilson
17.11.14 10:44 am

It’s appropriate that as I take my seat ahead of this saucy teasefest that is Australian burlesque at its best, a red feather gently sashays its way from above and into my lap. An escapee, no doubt, from a feather boa gracing the neck of some sex kitten about to tantalise audiences with her womanly wonders.

I’ve always preferred the implied to the contrived, which is why I’m not necessarily the hugest fan of art forms like pole dancing and strip tease – but I’ve always admired the burlesque performers for their ability to revive a seemingly extinguished art form and for their celebration of the female body in all its forms. But as I settle into the performance, I soon learn that burlesque is about so much more than that, from what would seem an unlikely source – a bloke.

He’s the partner and lover of one of the girls performing tonight, one of the country’s most talented nipple twirlers, and we sink into conversation fast. He and his lady – Deb Delicious – are from Canberra. They’re both exhausted, frustrated and frankly pissed-off at mainstream culture, the sexualisation of everything from breakfast cereal to floor tiles, the “fake is best” attitude, and Hollywood domination of contemporary ethics.

As he explains to me, quite passionately, the “current paradigm” in Canberra is for billboard lifestyle, sleazy nightclub advertisements, and the glorification of the superficial. That’s why burlesque is so special – it’s an art form where women are in charge of their bodies, and more than that – they’re allowed … permitted … even encouraged to feel beautiful no matter how closely they fit the “mould”.
And that’s what this night is all about - the appreciation of real female beauty. The audience is treated to a variety of performers from the slender to the voluptuous, and of all ages – from nubile beauties to mature goddesses.

Each of them are cheered and adored by the crowd, and the energy in the room is frank jubilation every time one of these luscious ladies removes an article of clothing. All the girls add something unique to the show – highlights include the classic performance of Dolores Daquiri – whose cheeky and deliberate “golden era” tease actually makes me feel like I’ve been spat out of a wormhole back in the 1920s.

Evie Red is another highlight, who turns “the humble lampshade” into a lighthouse guiding viewers to become voyeurs, before she expertly gives a performance of what could only be described as 19th century twerking.

It all gets me thinking about music video clips, and what a contrast they are to this state of feminine beauty and freedom ...

Whenever I watch the Top 40, I always feel kinda sad. First of all, I really miss music. It was such a joy to have songs on the radio and playing on the speakers in the shopping mall that were actually good songs and had nothing to do with how closely the artist looked like a fashion model. Sometimes the singers were beautiful – sometimes they weren’t – and it was all good either way. Not so now, alas – it’s all about the cookie cutter.

But there’s something much more sinister about music video clips – and that’s the ethic they’re delivering to impressionable young people. The ideas churned out by these clips suggest that girls need to look a certain way, especially if they want to attract male attention – or heaven forbid – love.

Let’s face it – us girls are sold the idea that in order to be of value, we need to look a certain way to be desired by men. Unfortunately, us girls tend to buy into the prank, which is why this “paradigm”, as my new friend would say, tends to stay put. Sadly, young boys are inundated with this rubbish too, and are just as affected.

So thank you, burlesque, for your offence on cookie cutter crap. And how marvellous that Hobart has its own burlesque troupe – Miss Kitty’s Meow – responsible for putting this show on.
Several of the Kitty’s girls – Scarlett Jezebel, Oopsy Daisy and Grace Cherry – take to the stage for the event, but they’ve also joined forces with interstate artists who have been busy spreading the scene across mainland Australia.

For anyone keen on joining the revolution, the Miss Kitty’s Meow girls also run weekly burlesque classes in Moonah.

Bavarian Baroness

Paula Xiberras

If Eve Von Bibra was in Germany she would be considered a Baroness. The Von Bibra name is a name that first was held by Bavarian knights and later they were upsized to Barons and Baronesses and even today in Bavaria they are still considered so.

Having spoken to Eve recently I can attest this Chantoozie is every bit a ‘princess’ even if in modern times this may translate into a pop princess! But Eve is also a down to earth girl with her priorities definitely in the right place.

Eve traces her lineage not only to Royals in Bavaria, but also to Tasmania! And indeed Tasmania is a place very familiar to and loved by Eve. Eve’s grandfather had a home on the East Coast of Tasmania. She recalls her visits here and the beauty of the history of Tassie and the beauty of the Midlands and Ross. In fact Tasmania is one of Eve’s most favourite places and particularly she mentions the Bay of Fires and Bruny Island as places she loves to visit. Eve is also impressed by how people that live here can settle down unperturbed and do their own creative things not bothered by the pace of life often experienced on the mainland.

Eve is very excited to be bringing the Chantoozies back to Tasmania and her thoughts don’t stray far from her appreciation of our state. She tells me that she and the girls recently experienced a performance on ‘A Day on the Green’ in South Australia’s Barossa Valley and that the beautiful landscapes and buildings there reminded her of Tassie.

Eve tells me about a recent video the band did that starred ‘their friends’, now very much Hollywood heavyweights, in Anthony LaPaglia and Hugh Jackman. The guys were having some fun in the video pretending they were members of the band. 

Like the guys, the girls have moved on in recent years each doing their own thing with Tottie performing plays, working in film as well as emceeing shows and even becoming a marriage celebrant.  It doesn’t surprise Eve that Tottie is involved in so many people friendly actives, describing her friend ‘as a breath of fresh oxygen, happiness and joy’.

Ally Fowler has also taken to the stage recently, performing in David Williamson’s plays and also working in the new series Wentworth.

While Eve herself, has been working in film and television with Chris Lilley, on the program ‘Rock Whiz’ as well as writing songs but she is overjoyed to be back with her ‘sisters’ as she calls the girls. Eve says she has 6 sisters, 3 biological and her additional ‘sisters’ in band members, Ally, Tottie and Angelica.

Perhaps Billy Joel, whom the Chantoozies supported on tour said it best when he exclaimed ‘together you girls make one hell of a woman’ and indeed they do.

You can see the Chantoozies at The Butter Factory Burnie on November 21 at 8pm.

Idea of North sets South‏

Paula Xiberras
15.11.14 5:41 am

image

Earlier this week i spoke to Sally Cameron, a member of a Capella group ‘The Idea of North’. The group is visitingTassie this weekend for the second time this year and are looking forward to reconnecting with their, as Sally says, ‘wonderful and loyal audience’. Sally loves Tasmania and especially performing in ‘the very beautiful oldest theatre, The Theatre Royal, however this time the group visited a new venue St David’s Cathedral, which will well suited their Repertoire of Ballads by Candlelight’ show and the acoustics will be amazing.

As mentioned, although the group are very eclectic with their material that encompasses jazz, opera, gospel and comedy, Sally says they have no preferred genre and although ’serious about their music, they are not too serious’ and their performances contain their trademark humour and artistic honesty.

And how did they come along with the name The Idea of North. Sally says it was one of the founding members MegCorson who devised it. Meg was a great fan of Glenn Gould from ‘The Idea of North’ 60s radio program, and so they adopted the name, something they were keen to do after once being introduced as the four got their name, a thing they were especially eager to do after being introduced at one stage as the four bananas, the group with a-peel!

On this visit The idea of North will also be promoting their album ‘Anthology’, the best of 21 years of recordings.

Idea of North appear at St David’s Cathedral tonight (Friday) at 8pm.

Their album Anthology is out now by ABC music.

We continue to invest in our interdisciplinary creative community, providing connections with world class experts, so we thought we’d share a few events that you may be interested in…

We recently partnered with the Salamanca Arts Centre, HyPe and Silver Lining Projects to give Tasmania’s creative talent access to one of the world’s leading dance companies from New York.  We brought dancer and choreographer Tara Lorenzen of the Trisha Brown Dance Company to Hobart last week to take a 3 day workshop for our talented performing artists exploring the creative process.

The Trisha Brown Dance company is renowned for exploring the extraordinary in the everyday through contemporary dance and has just finished its acclaimed season at the Melbourne Festival.

Those who participated were blown away by the insight they gained into the creative processes of the Trisha Brown Dance Company helping to develop and push their own creative practices.
We’re look forward to continuing our relationship with Tara and the Dance Company.

Documentary on shaman Lakshmi Love’s journey to the world’s toughest devotional ceremony

Philip Stebbing

London, United Kingdom

How it Began

Occasionally a story comes along so unusual it literally Suspends Belief.

My name is Phil Stebbing and I am unashamedly interested in the weird and wonderful. This curiosity led me to living in a house full of modern day shamen in London in 2005. By trade I am a Producer and Cameraman making documentaries for broadcasters such as BBC and Discovery, but never in my 25 years have I filmed something as extraordinary as this. 

This strange journey began as these shamen gave me free access to film them accessing the spirit world and to witness their amazing feats of endurance.

The central character of the film Suspending Belief is a British shaman called Lakshmi Love.  With his motto - “Life is just an illusion”  - he believed we can all change our reality at any moment to heal ourselves.

Tasmanian International Arts Festival brings the world to our shores

Becher Townshend, Font PR
12.11.14 11:31 am

image

The world comes to Tasmania shores in March 2015 for the state’s highly acclaimed biennial multi-arts festival –
now known as the Tasmanian International Arts Festival.

Ten Days Artistic Director, David Malacari said, just as Tasmania and the world has grown and changed, so has the
festival since its 2001 beginnings.

“The 2015 Tasmanian International Arts Festival brings with it a new creative energy and confidence that
celebrates Tasmanian’s connections to the world through the great trading routes of the southern oceans which
converge on the state, and through the many communities in Australia which provide cultural enrichment of
inestimable value,” Mr Malacari said.

“The program will be presented state wide in March 2015 in locations as diverse as Bruny Island, Lake Pedder,
Kempton, Saltwater River, Lake St Clair, Swansea and Deloraine as well as King Island and Flinders Island.

“It will showcase an exciting range wonderful artists and companies, national and international,” Mr Malacari said.

“We are connected to a world of exciting, intense and entertaining arts so finding theatre, dance, music, comedy
and visual arts for 2015 wasn’t the problem, however choosing from a mouth watering list of acts was. We have
put together a program appealing to our many audiences that features international acts Dementia 13, The
Cardinals, Rising and an Australian premiere of Hamlet, de Los Andes; alongside an abundance of creativity and
ambition from our local artists.

“Dementia 13 offers an impressive deconstruction of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1963 horror film’s audio in which the
entire sound track; dialogue, sound effects and music; are created live on stage, with astonishing clarity and
atmosphere, to accompany the screening of this glorious, schlock horror classic in Launceston and Hobart,” said
Mr Malacari.

“In an Australian exclusive, South American company Teatro de los Andes, use Bolivian culture, traditions,
mythologies and language, to recreate a Bolivian version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Hamlet de los Andes is not the
Hamlet of high-school. It is raw, visceral and compelling. This highly visual performance was a hit in London and is
sure to astound Tasmanian audiences in Burnie and Hobart.

“The increasingly renowned contemporary dancer, Aakash Odedra will delight audiences in Launceston and Hobart
with his beautifully fluid movements in both contemporary dance and a short work inspired by traditional Indian
styles in his acclaimed show, Rising.

“Odedra will perform four solo dances; three of which have been choreographed by world renowned
contemporary dance choreographers Akram Khan, Russell Maliphant and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, with the final dance
choreographed by Odedra himself.

“The inventive UK theatre company, Stan’s Café, explore the idea of belief in the sometimes whimsical but always
witty production, The Cardinals. When their puppets go missing the three cardinals must step in and act out some
of the most well known stories from the bible on a tiny puppet’s stage. A performance that doesn’t preach or
offend but does provoke questioning and self-reflection and provides a different experience for audiences by being
staged in churches in Launceston and Hobart. “

Arts Minister, the Hon. Dr Vanessa Goodwin said since its inception Ten Days has been one of the premier arts
experiences in Tasmania.

“We look forward to that continuing with the Tasmanian International Arts Festival.”

“The 2015 festival is another great opportunity for Tasmanians and visitors to enjoy a wide range of unique
performances in every corner of the state,” Dr Goodwin said.

Other highlights include:

• Blue Angel, an immersion of music, installation, video, sound design and art performed in and around
Hobart’s iconic Astor Hotel; audiences can select to stay overnight for the full, immersive experience
created by the stories of sailors and sea-faring, or stop by in the evening for a boutique concert.

• In Alzheimer Symphony, a famous elderly actor forgets his lines while performing Shakespeare’s King Lear,
marking the beginning of his journey into Alzheimers. He develops contraptions to meet his needs which
help fight his fading memory but eventually it becomes too much and he has no choice but to succumb to
his fate. Alzheimer Symphony will be performed on Bruny Island, Huonville, Kempton, Deloraine and
Swansea.

• El Son Entero, the well-respected traditional Cuban band will tour Australia for the first time with their
seductive beats and tightly woven rhythms sure to get audiences out of their seats and onto the dance
floor. El Son Entero will delight audiences in Burnie, Triabunna and Moonah.

• I Think I Can, an interactive performance which invites audiences to inhabit a miniature town and become
active participants in its community. To be performed in both Hobart and Burnie.

• The world premiere season performance in Hobart of Chinese maestro Tan Dun’s Wolf Totem –
commissioned and performed by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

The full program will be available from all Ten Days ticketing outlets and can be downloaded from the Ten Days
website. Tickets will go on sale 10am Thursday 13 November.

Tickets purchased prior to Christmas will attract a 25 per cent discount, subject to availability, as part of an early
bird ticket offer. To purchase tickets simply head to tendays.org.au, phone 6210 5777 or visit the Ten Days office
located at 71 Murray Street, Hobart.

FESTIVAL OF VOICES ANNOUNCES 2015 A CAPPELLA WORKSHOP

Carmen Stephens, Festival of Voices
12.11.14 5:15 am

DIRECT FROM GERMANY // AUSTRALIAN DEBUT //

WORLD’S FIRST METAL A CAPPELLA BAND // WORKSHOP & CONCERT

Drum roll…direct from Germany…heroes of the European festival circuit and a cappella like you’ve never heard it before… Festival of Voices presents VAN CANTO. Making their Australian debut for the Festival of Voices in July 2015, VAN CANTO are quite simply unlike any a cappella group you would have heard. VAN CANTO have melded the oldest form of music, the voice, with heavy metal and the result is astonishing. Their vocal talent and ear for harmonies is impeccable and their approach to a cappella is unique and inspiring. Their music is powerful, anthemic and contemporary.

There is a rich deepness to their sound that sets them apart and gives them an ancient feel in many ways. Next July, thousands of choristers will descend on Hobart, Tasmania to perform and participate in the 2015 Festival of Voices, Australia’s premier celebration of the human voice. Transforming Hobart into a Singing City, expect a magnificent 10-day program of performances, community events and – uniquely – workshops run by the artists. Singers of all ages and abilities will have the rare opportunity to work, learn and perform with VAN CANTO over six incredible days of workshop and concert for a singing experience that will stay with them forever.

STEF from the band said, “When we started Van Canto in 2006 we never thought that singing a cappella would bring us to the other side of the world! We are sure this will be another highlight in the band’s history and hopefully a good choice for all festival visitors.” VAN CANTO began their careers as a conventional metal band, but their desire to do something more vocal orientated inspired their transformation into the world’s first a cappella

WORKSHOP REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN AT FESTIVALOFVOICES.COM Early rate available until March 13, 2015 // *Suitable for singers of all abilities, 16 +
metal band. Five singers, one drummer. No guitars, no bass, no keyboards…expect an unbelievable melodic metal experience. Their success has swept through the European festival scene. Since 2006 they have recorded 5 studio albums, mixing covers and originals, toured Europe and beyond, and performed at festivals in front of tens of thousands of people.

In its eleventh year, the Festival welcomes individual singers, choirs and music lovers from across Australia, as Hobart is transformed into a Singing City.

*Van Canto concert details coming soon // 2015 Festival of Voices full program will be announced May 2015.

FOREST FALLS ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE, HEAVY HEARTED GIRL ...

Emily Cheung Media Release
11.11.14 12:44 pm

image

... AND EAST COAST TOUR DATES

Dynamic Melbourne six-piece, Forest Falls have announced the release of their newest single, Heavy Hearted Girl. To celebrate its release, the group has kicked off an east coast Australian tour that has already piqued interest at Smith’s Alternative, Canberra and Brighton Up Bar, Sydney. The tour, showcasing the band’s honed live set, arrives at Federation Square Melbourne on November 13 and continues to Beav’s Bar Geelong on November 16 and The Spotted Mallard Melbourne on November 26.

With the perfect amount of space, beauty, and breathtaking sophistication, Forest Falls dance elegantly about indie, folk, and pop lines and treat us with an alluring host of warm-blooded songs. Their sound is captivating and hypnotising, laden with inviting chants, vibrant arrangements, soaring vocals and sweet, summer’s day harmonies.

The single, Heavy Hearted Girl, is lifted from the recently released EP, Julia and was penned by lead vocalist, Jon O’Neill. Heavy Hearted Girl was initially written as a personal and cathartic experience to help grieve after losing a close friend to depression.  “It was only after it was written that we realised the song could act as a catalyst for more discussion and support for those who need it,” explains O’Neill.  “This song is a reminder that if you have a friend that you’re worried about, or if you’re suffering yourself, you shouldn’t do it alone. Although the quintessential Australian is supposed to be all about mateship and community, I think the truth is that being vulnerable, or in need of help in any form, can be really scary and conversation is often avoided - especially for young people.” 

“If I had to summarise Heavy Hearted Girl in one word it would be solitude,” says O’Neill. And it is this solitude that binds the single with its accompanying video clip, resulting in a simple yet incredibly refined and sensitive work of art. Produced by Brett Tinning and Matt Wilson from Quiet Giant, the video highlights an innate feeling of isolation but restores hope with a beautifully triumphant ending.

Excited to be on the road touring the new single, O’Neill enthuses “Feeding off audience interaction gives us the opportunity to breathe new life into songs which means every live performance is unique in itself. We throw heaps of love, thought, and energy into our shows and really aim to create a different world for both us and the audience to inhabit for the length of our set.”

Having just finished up in the studio with legendary folk producer, Wayne Connolly (The Paper Kites, Josh Pyke, Paul Dempsey) at the helm, Forest Falls are armed with an exciting new EP set for release in 2015.
