Dots+Loops Conviction presents a vividly emotional exploration of belief in the 21st century.
Dots+Loops kick off their 2019 season with Conviction, this July 28 at Newstead Brewing Co. Milton. Exploring religion and belief from multiple perspectives, the show ranges from medieval chant, to mesmerising post-minimalism, to live electronics, tied together with uniquely organic visuals.
Brisbane-born, NY-based violin soloist Courtenay Cleary presets the Australian premiere of David Lang’s ‘Mystery Sonatas,’ complimented by uniquely organic live visuals from Team Animal Spirits. Virtuosic, transcendental explorations of faith and emotion, Lang’s perspective is that of an agnostic examining the mystery of religion and belief itself.
British-Australian mezzo soprano Lotte Betts-Dean begins the experience with a set of solo vocal music from pioneering medieval composer and mystic Hildegard von Bingen, specially curated by Betts-Dean herself.
The live performances then flow into an ambient audiovisual ‘remix’ of the concert by Tilman Robinson, providing a backdrop for performers, composers and audience members to chat and mingle, with top-notch local brews available all night from Newstead Brewing Co.
