Come for a sonic workout with Leah Simmons, stay for a Dark Immersion listening session with Set Mo.
This week, a special pop-up at 40 Queen Street in Sydney’s Woollahra will be transforming into Sonos House, a homage to artists, musicians and photographers, celebrating the creative arts and showcasing some incredible Aussie talent in the process.
House of Orange and HK Living are behind the interior transformation, creating the perfect space to spend your day experiencing the music and arts scene Australia has to offer.
While doors open to the co-share workspace on Tuesday, July 10, the programme of events kicks off on Wednesday, with “Battlehymn”, a fiercely beautiful exhibition by renowned Australian photographer, Michelle Pitiris, otherwise known as SheisAphrodite.
SheisAphrodite has travelled around Australia, capturing images of emerging female talent and Battlehymn is a celebration of these women and their song stories, with each individual featured having chosen a “Battlehymn” – a piece of music which is meaningful, reflective and inspiring to them.
Sonos House will be the first time SheisAphrodite’s work has been exhibited.
And, just to ramp the awesomeness levels up even further, in partnership with Spotify, each portrait will have a code beneath it for attendees to scan and download the full Battlehymn playlist from the Spotify app.
The Battlehymn theme continues when DJ and radio presenter KLP will be hosting a Q&A with Thandi Phoenix, Wafia and Odette, discussing the music which has defined them on their way to becoming some of Australia’s hottest emerging talent.
In a male-dominated industry, the Battlehymn project brings life to the super talented females of the Australian music scene, providing an insight into their personal victories and struggles.
And, of course, Lost At E Minor will also be there on the day to sit down with SheisAphrodite and chat to her about what inspired her to create the Battlehymn exhibition and the music she finds inspiring during her creative process.
The event will continue across two weeks, finishing on Saturday, July 21, with a Dark Immersion set from electronic duo, Set Mo, and special guest Acyde Odunlami of No Vacancy Inn.
Other highlights include a discussion about anxiety and creativity, with Sarah Wilson and Clare Bowditch, on Saturday, July 14, and a sonic workout with Sydney’s Body by Leah Simmons on Saturday, July 21.
A full event programme and links to tickets and registrations is available from the Sonos House website.
