PREVIEW: Postcards from the West at the State Theatre Centre
RTRFM have teamed up with the State Library of Western Australia for a very #PERTH event.
Get ready for the state’s finest musical talent take to the vast film archives of the state library, showcasing our incredible history and composing brand-new soundtracks for the footage, playing live in the Studio Underground at the State Theatre Centre on Saturday December 15.
Catch the awe-inspiring post-rock of Tangled Thoughts of Leaving, the other-worldly electronica of Akioka, the brilliant beats of Diger Rokwell, the improvisational brilliance of Orphans and the wonderfully weird Kate Pass Kohesia Ensemble.
These five eclectic and innovative West Australian acts are all renowned for their boundary-pushing approaches to sound, and will all bring their distinctive sonic styles to these newly composed scores to archival film footage from the state library’s collections.
From the depths of the WA desert to its shimmering, expansive coastlines; from the elements that have forged it to the people that have shaped Western Australia into a truly magical state, the state library's collections will be brought to new life as part of this rare one-off audio visual performance..
This is a one-off performance with each musical piece being conceived specifically for this project, and all delivered on a single night – perhaps never to be heard again. A truly wonderful and once in a life time experience for all lovers of WA music and our state’s rich and varied history.
