Bach X Reimagined
Live performances at 6.30pm, 7.30pm & 8.30pm
Presented by anon.
‘when I am listening to Bach I frequently get inspired and feel an overwhelming instinct for his insistent rhythm, a cadence seeking something of the infinite.’ – M. C. Escher
Inspired by composer Johann Sebastian Bach’s repetitious compositions, Escher’s art of infinite tessellations mirrors Bach’s music. Referencing this parallel, creative collaboration anon. brings together Australian composers and performing artists to reimagine the works of Bach with live performances, new compositions across baroque, classical and jazz styles and a specially commissioned soundscape.
6–8pm WAX’O PARADISO
Soundtracking the verandah of Howard Arkley’s suburban weatherboard paradise, Wax’o Paradiso’s splendid krautback discoteque includes Andy Hart, Edd Fisher and Simon TK. United by a penchant for kitsch Australian psychedelia, Wax’o Paradiso has popped up in floating rooftop gardens, luscious convents, shipping containers, train yards, supernatural amphitheatres and smack bang under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
8–10pm SAN CISCO (DJ SET)
San Cisco are a four piece indie/pop outfit hailing from Fremantle WA.
The group released their third album The Water in 2017 and embarked on one of their biggest tours to date – playing 21 shows in 46 days across America, Europe and Australia. They’ve cemented themselves as festival favorites playing Splendour In The Grass, Beyond The Valley and Lost Paradise. Their breezy summer jam ‘Hey, Did I Do You Wrong’ placed at #79 in the Hottest 100. San Cisco DJ’s sees Jordi, Josh & Scarlett merge selections of disco, house, classics and other favorites carefully curated to bring the vibe across dancefloors in Australia.
Wander through NGV’s 2018 Architecture Commission Doubleground and discover chasm-like passageways, tilted embankments and a bamboo garden inspired by the building’s original Bamboo Court. Designed by Muir architecture and Openwork.
