Event Details

Syd Clayton's (1939-1994) work has been described as magical, achieving a Zen-like veneer of simplicity that masks a deep complexity of ideas both musical and philosophical. Using a toy roulette wheel and chance operations to compose with, Clayton occupies a unique place in Melbourne's experimental music history. Lucky Number director Barnaby Oliver challenges a new cast of performers from Melbourne's experimental music community to interpret Clayton's music in a fashion that is both true to the original spirit and injects new energy. Featuring: Adam Simmons, Mark Cauvin, The Crystal Set, Judy Pile, Clinton Green, Barnaby Oliver. Visuals and projections by Hugh McSpedden Lucky Number is a rare, one-night-only exploration of one of Melbourne's most neglected composers that is not to be missed.
