Sydney Festival 2018 - Aquasonic




An ethereal underwater concert performed by five musicians submerged in aquariums. Playing custom-made instruments and singing in an invented style reminiscent of Cocteau Twins' Elizabeth Fraser, the result is a musical performance that both looks and sounds haunting and otherworldly.Avant-garde ensemble Between Music spent years researching the possibilities of performing music underwater, conducting experiments with scientists, deep sea divers, and craftspeople to develop entirely new instruments that can be played in water. The result in a concert experience of improbable feats of melody you won't see or hear anywhere else on dry land."Eerie, unsettling, and beautifully fragile" Vice"Spectacular and boundary-pushing" Volksrant (NL)
