A Trail of Light and Sound

Last week Zac was a participant in A Trail of Light and Sound, a series of light and sounds sculptures created as a bridge between the locations of Sculpture Bermagui.

The week was a series of daily creative workshops where participants discussed their ideas and bought them to life with the support of team leaders. The evenings consisted of quick food breaks and lots of planning and making. Zac played a critical role in content creation, dance coreography, and was the BBQ master. On the night of the event Zac was in charge of security and crowd coordination, roles he took on board with much enthusiasm.

Big days and late nights resulted in a hugely successful event.

The trail consisted of a bakery that was turned into a musical instrument, a spaceman floating in the front of a cafe, a mechanic’s garage showing a projected film made from shadow play, a stop motion standing cinema, a historic fig tree lit in dazzling colour and adorned with hand made lanterns, water words illuminated by ultraviolet strobes, a baton dance, some traditional dance performed by local indigenous primary school kids, and massive palm trees illuminated by the mother of all light projectors. An absolute spectacular enjoyed by a throng of punters and creators.

Not content with just throwing the biggest sound and light event Bermagui had ever seen the crew headed over to Murrah Hall on Saturday night to setup The Mess Age where Zac joined Tralala Blip and 5 other bands and DJs to rock the hall.

A massive week of creativity, play, and forging new friendships.

New Herb Box

Anthony and I built a herb planter box out of a old crate a friend was throwing out. We are growing pac choy, thyme, chives, chili, oregano, sage, and mint. 

Anthony: Not the best time to plant but we will see how they go. I’m sure we will manage more than one cook up.

Zac and the Tralala Blip crew will be performing at the Foundry next Monday evening.

It looks like a pretty amazing and eclectic line-up so be sure to come down if you can make it.

Exploring Vinyl

Zac may not have a turntable but that doesn’t stop us from exploring the wonderful world of vinyl. Ewingsdale Hall was recently host to The Vinyl Junkie and his 40,000+ collection of old school records.

We travelled out in a small group and once there Zac was quick to find an AC/DC album and a nice comfortable spot to sit and listen. Record after record he explored a wide array of music including some old school rock, electronic dance, african tribal, speed metal, and even some baroque.

The discovery of the day was a hands down winner with Cream’s Disraeli Gears, which I (Anthony) believe to be one of the best rock trio albums ever recorded. Something new to add to Zac’s already wide taste in music.

Once the music exploration came to end it was a short drive to take a long needed walk on the beach and a slice of pizza in downtown Byron.

Back in Town

Zac and the TraLaLa Blip crew are back in Lismore after a successful tour.
