Curated by Megan Washington
Join us for a special evening to mark the 20th anniversary of the opening of City Recital Hall. Curated by Australian musician and songwriter Megan Washington, this concert will celebrate the diversity of Australian music and culture. For the first time ever, Megan will collaborate with renowned artists Electric Fields, Luke Howard and Topology to look ahead to the music of tomorrow with a classical crossover theme.
Modern pop’s patron saint Megan Washington is a platinum-selling and ARIA Award-winning musician who’s been known to reduce grown men to tears. The acute thinker and blistering performer has captivated music listeners with her ability to tell stories that inflate the spirit. “...pop is more interesting with her in it” (Idolator).
Electric Fields is a potent and unique force bringing together the brilliance and creativity of music producer and composer Michael Ross, with the mesmerising sensitivity of Zaachariaha Fielding - whose rare and beautiful voice has been described as ‘taking soul to the stratosphere’. These two feminine brothers create a striking and haunting merging of living traditional Aboriginal culture with electronic music.
Pianist and composer Luke Howard captures audiences with his contemporary classical arrangements that curl and twist around the boundaries of a particular emotion. Though wordless, Howard’s songs perform a function unique to music as a medium – that of evoking without describing, bringing listeners to a feeling which defies articulating.
Brisbane-based Topology are established leaders in musical creativity in Australia, prolific creators of new original work, expert collaborators across genres and art forms and award-winning music educators. The quintet experiments with surprising combinations of music genres, theatrical staging and cross art form collaborations to create exciting, thought-provoking music experiences.
Together, these artists will explore what the future of music can sound like.
