Throughout May and June at the Sydney Opera House witness original premieres, one-off projects and unmissable performances from Australian artists, alongside select global acts and emerging voices at Vivid LIVE 2023.
Earlier this month electro wizard and multi-instrumentalist Skeleten brought a live band and visions of a sonic utopia to the Sydney Opera House’s studio room. We sent along Maria Dimitrakas to get amongst the Vivid Live action.
“I was curious how this tender kind of introspective, hyperpersonal, and emotional music would translate into a public listening setting at the Opera House. After all, what does it feel like to play and/or hear ‘lockdown’ music in a room full of people?”
Like many artists during the pandemic, Japanese all-female ‘Neo Kawaii’ rock group CHAI found that the stay at home restrictions altered their usual process of creating music. They used this as an opportunity to not only change the direction of their latest album ‘Wink’, but to celebrate their listeners. They told Kana Frazer about it on Mornings last week.
Need a live music fix? Vivid Sydney is officially in full swing! So catch Caitlin Harnett and the Pony Boys, Ben Fester, Harvey Sutherland, and RVG (to name a few) playing in Sydney and surrounds PLUS the likes of Sampa the Great, GODTET, HTRK + heaps more performing as part of VIVID. So much good music, so little time…
