Tonight!

Byron Theatre
Kaki King’s landmark new work, 'The Neck is a Bridge to the Body'
An Innovative Multimedia Performance

Thursday 16th August @ 8:00pm at Byron Theatre
All Tickets $42.30 | Age 15+
www.byroncentre.com.au/whats-on

Presented by Top Shelf Productions.

“I’ve never seen anything like it… a sumptuous feast for the senses, a dizzying display of sound and vision by a guitarist already renowned for her innovation… I repeat: Do not miss this.” Boston Globe

“There are some guitar players that are good, and there are some guitar players that are really fucking good. And then there’s Kaki King.” Dave Grohl, Music Radar

Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, “The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body” is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist through virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. This groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other, where luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins, are cast onto an Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production.

“More than anything the process of creating this music has proven to me once again that the guitar really does the speaking, and I’m just the interpreter.” Kaki King

'The Neck is a Bridge to the Body' was produced in collaboration with Glowing Pictures (best known for their work with such artists as Animal Collective, David Byrne & Brian Eno, Beastie Boys, and TV On The Radio). An album of the same name, featuring the soundtrack from the show, was released on March 3, 2015.

“… the duo’s collaborative music video for King’s “Anthropomorph” is a harmonious conversation between two artists who speak a similar language, although they work in different disciplines.” The Creators Project

“when two entirely different art forms fit so well together that the boundaries between vision and sound, hand and ear, line and note, begin to blur. We’re feeling that particular kind of synesthesia…” Huffington Post

Matt Hill - Album Launch:
'Stars and the Moon and Satellites'

Friday 17th August @ 7:30pm at Byron Theatre

Award winning songwriter Matt Hill launches his new album, Stars and the Moon and Satellites. Best known for his delicate and beguiling keyboard parts with the group 'amphibian', Matt has put together a new band to present a collection of carefully crafted and heartfelt songs. With echoes of Nick Drake and Bon Iver, this music lies somewhere between the worlds of ambient post rock and contemporary folk.

Tix: Full $25 | Conc $20 | Child U18 $12
www.byroncentre.com.au/whats-on

Matt’s last solo album, Warm Keep Warm, won several NCEIA Dolphin Awards, including Best Album. Since then Matt has released two vinyl albums with amphibian, composed the music for the NORPA production Engine, and produced soundscapes for internationally renowned media artist Grayson Cooke. This album sees Matt trading in some of his electronica know-how for an earthier, intuitive and acoustic approach.

Matt (piano, guitar and vocals) will be joined onstage by Barry Hill (bass and guitar), Cye Wood (strings), Chris Mason (drums) and Gabriella Hill (clarinet).

Checkout some of the tracks on the Matt Hill Music website: matthillmusic.info/music

Whats On Byron

I can't figure out if this weeks gone fast or slow - my daughter's been on school camp and I've missed her heaps so on the one hand it's felt like it's crawled by but on the other hand the weekend is upon us again and I can't quite believe it's come around so quickly! 😮
Anyway, let's see what it has in store for Saturday!🧐
Starting at 8am Byron Flea have their monthly flea market and this months theme is Yarn & Knits with Yarn Bombing Demos. You can pick up bargains galore, enjoy fresh tasty food & refreshments plus there's a fun kiddies corner with face-painting too.
There's merriment in Main Arm as, after a long hiatus, the Main Arm Markets at Kohinur Hall reopens from 9am. There's local produce, handmade goods and family fun and entertainment with a magic show at 11.30!
Or if you're over in Ballina Shire, grab a bargain while entertaining the kids at the Teven Tintenbar Public School Country Fair from 9.30am to 2.30pm. Try your luck at Moo Poo lotto, snare a bargain at the bric-a-brac, toys and book stalls, plus rides, games & fun activities for kids!
And on Saturday evening Federal Film Society Kid's Movie Club will be showing Charlotte's Web at Federal Hall from 4pm with family dinner at 5.30pm Kid's movie $5, kids dinner $5. Menu options listed in our Calendar of Events.

And that's just Saturday! Sunday info will be listed socially on Saturday evening or you can just pop over to our Calendar of Events athttp://www.byron4kids.com.au/calendar-of-events/ for all the details!😊

Have an awesome Saturday folks!!
