Saatchi Exhibition: Psychedelic Rays of Sound Concert: 25 September

When: 25 September, 3PM
Where: Radford Auditorium, Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide
Cost: Free with your Saatchi exhibition ticket or $10 at the door

Inspired by the Saatchi Gallery in Adelaide, some of Adelaide’s leading composers and performers of contemporary music have combined forces to present this concert inspired by recent British art and music.

Those much-admired champions of new music, the Zephyr String Quartet, are joined by Stephen Whittington, Luke Harrald, Christian Haines, Seb Tomczak, Al Thumm and Jamie Seyfang to premiere new works combining instrumental and electronic sounds with video projections – like the music of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin and Autechre, but with a distinctly Adelaide twist.

Using everything from classic analogue synths to mobile phones and Wii controller, the music ranges from ambient to electronica and drum and bass. From Stephen Whittington’s wistful Music for Airport Furniture to Luke Harrald’s controversial You Can Change The World By Shopping, it is guaranteed to be both entertaining and thought-provoking.
