In early October, I was lucky enough to experience the Japanese post-rock instrumental quartet Mono, accompanied by the Holy Ground Orchestra as part of the Melbourne Festival. A sweeping, emotive 90 minute spectacle of both joy and sorrow, made stronger by the accompanying full orchestra and the perfect venue of the Forum Theatre.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
