Vivid Live 2010

Vivid Live 2010 Opera House Projection

Vivid Live is an interesting concept. Each year it gives an internationally acclaimed artist the opportunity to curate a large scale festival through the Sydney Opera House. Last year Brian Eno curated the inaugural festival. I was lucky enough to see Eno’s keynote address, his projections onto the Sydney Opera House and his 77 million Paintings installation as well as performances by electronic/rock acts Pivot (now PVT) and Ladytron.

This year the projections onto the Sydney Opera House are back, created by Laurie Anderson. Anderson and Lou Reed are the Vivid Live curators for 2010 and have scheduled a very interesting and diverse line-up including Tuvan throat singers Chirgilchin, stylistically differing Japanese rock bands Boris and Melt Banana and The Blind Boys of Alabama.
