Music for the Eyes
2005, Studio, Sydney Opera House
Collaboration with CODA; a tribute to Erik Satie.
Satie was an eccentric artist with a fantastic imagination and a philosophy that music is to be seen as much as it is to be heard. Just as Satie incorporated the talents of his early 20th century contemporaries Picasso, Cocteau and Duchamp, CODA joined with showgirls, opera singers, spoken word artists and aerial performers to pay homage to the great French impressionist at the Sydney Opera House.
For the inaugural season of Music for the Eyes, CODA collaborated with musicians Veronique Serret (Australian Chamber Orchestra), Jessica O’Donoghue (Opera Queensland), Tim Constable (Synergy) and Maja Petrova, as well as aerialist Imogen Kelly, NIDA's Kevin Jackson and performance artist Elena Knox.
