Bleach Festival – Verdi’s Requiem HOTA Gold Coast

2019-06-15T10:17:58+10:00

A Fantastic week spent on the Gold Coast at HOTA (Home of the Arts) culminating in a highly evocative and engaging performance of Verdi’s Requiem, presented by Opera Queensland and The Queensland Conservatorium of Music Symphony Orchestra.

Giuseppe Verdi’s setting of the Latin Requiem Mass is one of the great choral blockbusters, rivalling Handel’s Messiah and Mozart’s own Requiem for popularity. Already outsized for performances in most churches, the Requiem will break free of the concert hall in Opera Queensland’s 2019 season, coming to the Gold Coast’s Home of the Arts for an outdoor performance, in collaboration with the Bleach* Festival, that promises plenty of surprises

Thanks to the Hilltop Hoods for having me along to mix the Queensland Symphony Orchestra at Boondal Entertainment Center for the Brisbane leg of their Restrung Tour 2016. It was a great experience. Also thanks to Peter, Matthew, Vinnie, Heather and all the players from the QSO for being so easy and extremely accommodating during the gig.

Sound Designer for The New Black

2019-06-04T21:50:51+10:00

It was a great pleasure to be involved as the Sound Designer in the debut performance of The New Black at The Arts Centre Gold Coast.

The New Black is a brand new musical hailed as the next Bran Nue Dae by Cameron Woodhead of The Age.

Jim Kokatha is a young, bright, educated, Aboriginal man on the way up at a prestigious Brisbane law firm. But when his Aunty expects him to represent her at an inquest, Jim is caught between his aspirations and his responsibilities. In trying to reconcile the two, he takes us on an uplifting journey full of comedy, drama, song, dance and spectacle.

The New Black is savvy, professional, urban, ambitious… and cheeky!

Featuring Leeroy Bilney as the young gun lawyer, Ernie Dingo as his father, Robyn Archer will return to the musical stage as the charismatic Magistrate Madeleine Hawkshire. Elaine Crombie who featured in Redfern Now will shine as Aunty Eileen, William Zappa will play Rupert Kerighan. Marcus Corowa has written songs for the production. A Deadly Award winner, his music is turning heads amongst music fans with his catchy melodies, heartfelt lyrics and silky smooth singing voice. Drawing on his Aboriginal and South Sea Islander roots, Marcus combines elements of country, pop and funk to create a soulful sound that is distinctly his own.

Scotland the Brave – Sydney Opera House 2007

2009-05-13T14:08:24+10:00

Opera HouseWelcome to Scotland The Brave 2007. Interestingly enough the two performances in the sydney opera house this year co-incided with St Patrick’s day and ended up with the soloists and crew unable to find a taxi back to the hotel. An interesting bus trip followed along George St in Sydney. This is the first of the 2007 dates for STB this year, we are off to Auckland, Toronto, Brisbane and Melbourne later this year. As always, a fun time was had by all.
