Surround yourself with plants, projections and the synth-driven sounds of Anatole at Plant Life Presents: Plantasia.
Horticulture Innovation Australia's home-decorating site, Plant Life Balance, is bringing Sydney-based electronic producer Anatole to Rupert on Rupert for a performance of new tracks inspired by Mort Garson’s recently reissued cult 1976 synth-based album Mother Earth: Plantasia – an album Garson composed to make plants grow.
Anatole will be joined by projectionist Carla Zimbler, whose dynamic and sound-reactive visuals will move to the music, seeming to bounce off the foliage filling the Collingwood bar.
Nature-lover and scientist Dr Dominique Hes will join the collaboration to talk about the science of how plants and music affect the brain. Also speaking is Plant Life Balance ambassador Jason Chongue (the Plant Society), who will further explore the connections between music, the mind and nature.
Tickets are $35 and include plant-based canapes and a drink on entry.
From 7pm to 9pm.
