Sonic Whispers returns as part of MusicTown 2016 with a night of musical experimentation and collaboration!
On the 17th April at Whelan’s Live, Sonic Whispers will host three new bands from three diverse genres of music; Bitch Falcon (Rock), Wounded Healer (Electronic) and Bunoscionn (Trad) with an exciting host in the form of Rob Broderick of Abandoman, winner of the Adelaide Fringe 2012.
We’re ripping apart the history, ethos, and the sonic boom energy of three wildly diverse genres of music. We’re offering the chance to peer into the hearts and brains of the people behind the song-writing process, and offering YOU the unique chance to help to shape a song as part of a live improv experiment where everything is to play for and everyone gets to play.
How is music interpreted? How do we communicate through sound? How do musical genres influence us and how do they make us feel the way we do? This is what we want to find out!
Here’s how it works.
One band first. They play a tune. The next band is brought on stage. They’ve heard nothing so far. Then each band will try to reinterpret the song played by the previous band – the only catch is that since they’ll have their ears covered backstage, they will be relying on you to gives them clues and cues of how to play! What was the rhythm, can you remember the lyrics, how about the structure of the verse?!
Sonic Whispers will be a playful, insightful, and utterly unique evening that will explore both the idiosyncrasies of the genres, and the underlying harmonies of all musical expression.
