Birds Of Tokyo’s Adam Spark presents Snow vs Mountain | National Art School
Cell Block Theatre, National Art School
156 Forbes St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010
18 Jun 6pm – 8pm
Composer Adam Spark, the driving force behind ARIA and APRA Award winning rock band Birds Of Tokyo, presents the World Premiere of his bittersweet neo-classical opus. Be lured into a visually stunning yet fragile world before levitating into the night sky in this meditation on survival.
In contrast to the stadium-filling rock anthems for Birds Of Tokyo, Adam drives this epic composition with cinematic pianos, synthetic soundscapes and a chamber orchestra. Layer in collaborations with legendary British arranger Audrey Riley (Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, Coldplay, The Smiths), and post-rock prodigy Otto Wicks Green (sleepmakeswaves) and the mountainous world comes to life.
In 2018, composer and producer Adam found himself at the very bottom of the well. “I had to write my way into living”, he explains. “This project is the result of those writings. It literally saved my life and is designed to share my eventual realisation that living, even through pain, is well worth it.”
This is music of hope, born out of dark times. Expect a spellbinding masterpiece from one of Australia’s towering rock gods.
Presented by Eleven Music with support from Vivid Sydney, City of Sydney and National Art School.
