Bowie, Berlin & Beyond + Project Flicks
FRIDAY 01 MARCH - 8:00 PM
Delta Saxophone Quartet
Following explorations of Soft Machine and King Crimson, the latest project from the Delta Saxophone Quartet follows in the imaginary footsteps of David Bowie and his Berlin Years. The music explores and re-visits the period when Bowie experimented with the ambient world of Brian Eno, free improvisation, and the minimalist works of the classical composer, Philip Glass.
Project Flicks presents a selection of short films accompanied by music performed live by DSQ. The International films chosen cover a wide period of classic cinema, from the early black and white movies, newsreel footage from the ‘Prelinger Archives’, an Oscar winning Parisian classic, and a brand new commission from Australia, based on the relationship of ‘Brian & Banksy’ (a budgie and a dog!). Through the ‘prism’ of live film, the DSQ has commissioned new scores which will engage, enthral and delight, opening up a freshness of discovery for inquisitive minds from age 8 to 108.
