Brisbane Indie-Classical collective Dots+Loops present Radio Rewrite
Joshua Lovett | On 03, Mar 2015
Brisbane Indie-Classical collective Dots+Loops return for theÂ forth show in their series with a night of eclectic and engaging music from some of Australia’s most talented musicians and composers.
The night will begin with two new pieces, written by Bryce DessnerÂ (guitarist of The National) and Â performed by the Armas Quartet. Although best known for his involvement in the American Indie-Rock act, Bryce is becomingly increasingly known for his compositions, and this occasion marks the first time his works have been performed in Queensland.
The works of Brisbane’s Robert Davidson, the main composer for TopologyÂ will also be featured, with his compelling post-minimalist masterpiece Landscape: for String Quartet and Guitar set to be performed by the Armilla Quartet and Joseph Fallon.
The centrepiece for the night is set to be the Queensland premiere performance by Brisbane Indie-Classical band NonsembleÂ performingÂ Steve Reich’s latest major piece, Radio Rewrite. In this pieceÂ Steve Reich takes two pieces by the legendary indie group Radiohead and works from there, taking listeners through a familiar, yet different musical journey, one that cannot be missed.
TheÂ night will concludeÂ with DJ Airport laying down a set of Electronica, Bass, and Techno to match the conceptual flowÂ of the night, thus easing listeners out of the musical world and allowing them to enjoy the space and comprehend the night’s music at their own leisure.
Dots+Loops: Radio Rewrite will take place in the newly converted warehouse space The Triffid, a spaciously converted World War Two Hanger in Newstead run by former Powderfinger Bassist John Collins. The venue and musicÂ are outside the norm for Brisbane, and truly make this a night thatÂ any Brisbane music lover cannot miss.
