Richard Tognetti’s first exploration of the links between the ocean, surfing and music resulted in the documentary Musica Surfica, winning best feature awards at film festivals in the USA, Brazil, South Africa and France. In this new multimedia performance, Jon Frank’s awe-inspiring ocean photography and footage glides across the big screen, mingling with the ACO’s live performance. Fans of the ACO’s collaboration with Bill Henson, Luminous, will again be moved by the revealing interplay of music and image. The Glide comes to Sydney and Melbourne after performances in Maribor, Noosa and New York. First, oud virtuoso Joseph Tawadros reprises his highly acclaimed collaboration with the ACO, a unique and exciting meeting of Arabic and western classical music.
