Kid Koala held his first of four shows at the NAC Backstage.
It was part of Kid Koala’s Satellite Concert and promoting the album Music to Draw: Satellite.
The first night of the show sold out and it was quite an experience!
Sadly Emiliana Torinni wasn’t available since she is touring in Europe at the moment.
But she will be joining him later in the year or so.
Here is the description:
Kid Koala will present an innovative collection of dreamy, atmospheric tracks composed especially for this event.
In this latest live experience the audience is seated at stations equipped with a turntable, effects box and a small crate of colour coded vinyl records.
Through subtle coloured lighting changes in the room, the audience is cued to play along.
The audience is an integral part of the show, accompanying Kid Koala to create an “ambient vinyl orchestra,” melding their individual strains into a fluid body of sound.
The idea is to have 60 harmonized turntables create a unique, uplifting, dynamic evening of light and music.
It was a departure since it was the first time the audience got to participate and the album Music to Draw: Satellite was more experimental, dreamy ambient electronica music.
One song that was very moving and personal was The Darkest Day which dealt with his cousin’s mental health and death.
There was a part of the show where the audience got to do a DJ skratch off.
So much fun that I was so worried of almost destroying the turntable or ruin the colour coded vinyls.
Definitely one of the best shows in 2017!
