Brian Eno is curating this year’s Vivid Sydney Fest, being held May 28 to June 14 in Sydney, Australia.
Here are the details:
Sydney Opera House presents Luminous – an annual festival of music, debate, light and performance. Curated by Brian Eno, this inaugural year features a plethora of music acts alongside public talks and spectacular light and art installations from May 28 to June 14.
In a brilliant display of colour, Eno will launch Luminous with the lighting of the sails, transforming Utzon’s masterpiece into an artists’ canvas. The festival will also feature Eno’s image/sound installation, 77 Million Paintings. Acclaimed at the Venice Biennale, this constantly evolving, totally original audio/visual experience will run throughout Luminous as a free event in the Studio.
Music highlights include New York supergroup Battles, UK synth-popsters Ladytron, Irish singer/songwriter Damien Dempsey, Fourth World trumpeter Jon Hassell, Reggie Watts, Laraaji, the voice of Underworld Karl Hyde, and Jon Hopkins.
