Acoustic Life of Sheds – Cape to Cape

Big hART Inc.

 

Big hART celebrates its 25th year with an expanded version of its much loved music project, Acoustic Life of Sheds, with a journey in sound, cape to cape, along the Arcadian north west coast.

Sheds have many lives. They dot the Tasmanian landscape, built to serve through storms, floods and drought. Sheds are sentinel shapes on the horizon, watching as rural life changes around them, bringing a new purpose, a new patina, a new story, until abandoned. With their heyday long gone, these relics stand with hinges rusted shut on a rich past, preserved in metal, grease and dust.

Acoustic Life of Sheds brings together musicians, composers and sound designers to listen to these sheds on family farms, to be inspired by the echoes of the past, and to play back these sonic lives to us.

Big hART created Acoustic Life of Sheds for the 2015 Festival to such acclaim, it was clear they’d barely scraped the surface. This year, invited back by popular demand to explore five new sheds between Table Cape and Rocky Cape in a 50-kilometre round trip, finishing with a celebratory concert hosted in a large working shed.

Take the complete 5-shed tour or follow your nose to any for the set performance time.
