Wildbirds & Peacedrums with voices and Amiina
(Sweden/Iceland)

Wildbirds & Peacedrums are impossible to categorise. Combining experimental Björkesque electropop, jazz, sultry blues and some truly dynamic percussion, they produce music of instinct, innovation, emotional rawness and purity of expression. Known for surprising and powerful live shows, they're joined by the ethereal voices of special Perth guests, the St George's Cathedral Consort Choir.

First on stage: Members of Icelandic group Amiina create a magical soundscape to the work of pioneering animator Lotte Reiniger. Originally commisioned as Animagica by Jersey Branchage Film Festival.

Wallentin is a vivacious performer, clawing at the air and appearing transported when she growls the spectral love lament 'Under Land and Over Sea'. THE GUARDIAN

Seated Show

AFTER PARTY

DJKL
Al Reinert's film For All Mankind documents NASA's Apollo missions, with much of the footage shot by the astronauts themselves. Brian Eno supplied the original soundtrack, released as Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks.

For this performance, DJKL rescores the film with a soundscape of NASA audio recordings and Brian Eno compositions, combined with music by ambient artists such as The Orb, Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin. Drawing on Eno’s Oblique Strategies and chance processes, DJKL uses a number of sound sources on random settings to ensure that the performance is unique and unpredictable. This serendipitous juxtaposition of sound and vision provides a new view of this landmark documentary.
