Dots+Loops: Radio Rewrite

Brisbane's indie classical collective return with their biggest show yet.

Neither a classical concert nor a club gig, the Dots+Loops series inhabits a space in between. You can clap between movements. You can go up to the bar and purchase drinks whenever you feel like it. And you don't need to put up with sweaty punters and Pitbull. Dots+Loops: Radio Rewrite is the fourth show in the series, and will take place at the newly converted warehouse space The Triffid on March 20. It features some of the most engaging indie classical around at the moment, presented in a quirky and accessible way, and performed by some of Australia's most talented young musicans, including special guests Nonsemble and friends, who will be presenting the Queensland premiere of Steve Reich's Radio Rewrite.

The night begins with two new pieces by Bryce Dessner, performed by the Armas Quartet. Dessner may be better known by some as the guitarist with The National, however he is just as amazing with the pen as with the pick. Fruits of a collaboration with the legendary Kronos Quartet, the explosive Aheym and the hypnotic Little Blue Something were released to much acclaim just over a year ago. Brisbane’s Armas Quartet have been performing together for over three years, and with a history of bringing contemporary string music to life with energy and finesse, they are a perfect fit to bring these Dessner works to Queensland for the first time.

Brisbane's own Robert Davidson is the main composer for Topology. His musical reworking of Julia Gillard's misogyny speech "Not Now, Not Ever" was propelled to viral fame last year following its recording by The Australian Voices, and for years he has been writing fantastic music for a eclectic range of instruments and genres. Dots+Loops: Radio Rewrite will see five of Brisbane's most talented up-and-coming musicians, Armilla Quartet and Joseph Fallon, perform his compelling post-minimalist masterpiece Landscape for string quartet and guitar.

Steve Reich's unique minimalist compositions have inspired countless musicians and bands, but with his latest major piece Radio Rewrite that inspiration is turned on its head, as he uses two pieces by Radiohead as a compositional starting point. With stylistic roots in both Reich and Radiohead, Brisbane indie classical band Nonsemble are an ideal choice to bring Radio Rewrite to Queensland for the first time, and will be joined by a number of other leading musicians to complete the 12-person ensemble.

Finally, the concert will be concluded with DJ Airport laying down a set of electronica, IDM, bass music and techno that conceptually flows on from the rest of the concert.

Dots+Loops is a little different to your usual gig, but provides a unique and memorable musical experience for those ready to venture outside the norm. The warehouse setting ensures a casual vibe, and the bar prices are quite reasonable indeed. We hope you can make it along.
