Adelaide Festival 28 February - 16 March 2014

Unsound: Snowtown: Live and Stars of the Lid

Australia / United States

Jed Kurzel’s award -winning score for the controversial Australian film Snowtown was integral in creating the dark, claustrophobic mood. Now, the incredible composition and imagery from the film became a new work, performed live with a full band  to a backdrop of previously unreleased footage from his brother Justin Kurzel’s film.

Then settle in for a rare live performance from one of the world’s most influential drone/ambient bands, Stars of the Lid. Soundscapes composed from the effect-treated guitars and hypnotic strings combine with video artist Luke Savisky’s mesmerising projections in this absorbing concert, performed with Zephyr Quartet and Friends.
