Adelaide Festival // Unsound Adelaide

Adelaide Festival 1 - 17 March 2013

Unsound Adelaide

Australian Premiere / Exclusive to Adelaide

Having a DJ save your life is so 1982. How about a DJ who scares you half to death, melts your mind with stunning combinations of sound and visuals and pushes electronic music to its limits? Over three separate nights at Queen’s Theatre and one visually spectacular event at Adelaide Town Hall, Unsound Adelaide is set to put the bass wobble in your chest. From Krakow, Poland to New York and now Adelaide, the hugely successful Unsound Festival showcases new electronic music and visuals from international artists melding ambient to modern club, post-classical and experimental sounds.


Fri 15 Mar 7.30pm
Adelaide Town Hall

Ben Frost and Daniel Bjarnason with film manipulations by Brian Eno and Nick Robertson
Exclusive to Adelaide

Australia / Iceland

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Krakow writer Stanislaw Lem’s novel Solaris, Ben Frost and Daníel Bjarnason were commissioned by Unsound to write this work for strings, percussion, prepared piano, guitars and electronics – a narrative of sound that is an exploration of an interior cosmos. The performance features members of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and film manipulations by Brian Eno and Nick Robertson, drawing on moments from the Tarkovsky film adaptation, to create a visual parallel to the music composition process.
