SST x QSO

11182771_10153292695230522_5757178785021420544_oWe are shaping up for one of our coolest collaborations as part of this month’s upcoming QSOCurrent Festival in Brisbane, Australia. SST Composer Ryan Walsh, along with Brisbane -based visual artist Jaymis Loveday, are teaming up with Melbourne musician Tim Shiel and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra for a cinematic reworking of Tim’s soundtrack to the acclaimed iOS game DUET. Featuring (obviously) an orchestra, live electronics, orchestral manipulation and visuals based on DUET’s classy minimal aesthetic – this is one laptop crash away from a thrilling disaster.

Here’s a sneak peek of how it’s sounding and here Tim talk more about the show (and DUET) here. Tickets via QSO Website.

A War of Hope Anzac Day Premiere

The team at SST were recently privileged to work on the soundtrack to the upcoming feature documentary “A War of Hope”, with composer Ryan Walsh providing almost an hour of original music. “A War of Hope” tells the story of the forced removal, exile and eventual return of the Hopevale indigenous community to their homeland in North Queensland. Told through the stories and memories of elders Roy McIvor (picured), Herbert Mclean and George Rosendale, “A War of Hope” recounts a dark chapter of Australian history that remains largely unknown. Premiering Anzac Day, April 25 on NITV. Check out the trailer here and a preview of some of the soundtrack here.
