Disruption: The Voice of Drums : Sydney Festival 2021
Alongside the voice, the drum is the most elemental form of human expression. From prehistory to the present, we have used drums to conjure spirits, create ecstatic states of mind, bring communities together and put fear into the hearts of enemies.
More recently, drums have been the heartbeat of music whose purpose is to disrupt, featuring in protests across the world from Hong Kong, to Russia and the United States.
Jazz composer-saxophonist Jeremy Rose and the 8-piece Earshift Orchestra (Iron in the Blood, Sydney Festival 2020) return with a thrilling concert-length tribute to the timeless, visceral and disruptive power of the drum.
Featuring drum virtuosi Simon Barker and his protégé, Korean-born Chloe Kim, with skilfully complementary big-screen projections created by Rachel Peachey and Paul Mosig, Disruption! The Voice of Drums will be a riveting experience.
