‘Spirit Of Akasha’ Music Lineup For Sydney Festival 2014 Announced

Written by Greg Moskovitch on November 28, 2013

As part of the programme for the 2014 Sydney Festival, Andrew Kidman‘s film Spirit Of Akasha, a studied and esoteric exploration of surf culture that continues the legacy of Albert Falzon‘s Morning of the Earth, will be accompanied by a score performed live by Xavier Rudd, Pond, and more.

An apprentice of Albert Falzon himself, Australian filmmaker Andrew Kidman (Litmus, Glass Love, Last Hope) sought to recapture the spirit of Falzon’s groundbreaking surf film and introduce it to a modern context, bringing together the realms of surfing, music and filmmaking.

Staying true to the spirit of Morning of the Earth, wherein music was not merely a background accompaniment but rather the narrator of the of the film’s story, Spirit Of Akasha will have its own live musical narration brought to life on the Concert Hall stage of the Sydney Opera House.

Accompanying the film’s World Premiere at Sydney Festival 2014 will be live performances from Xavier Rudd, Pond, Canyons, Andrew Kidman & the Windy Hills and Jack River. Each artist has created original songs for the film, as well as rerecording music from Morning of the Earth.

The audience will first be delighted by the eclectic sounds of DJ group Canyons, before the psych-infused folk pop of Jack River, the mesmerising tones of rising stars Pond, the passionate songcraft of Xavier Rudd, and the talent of Andrew Kidman and his band The Windy Hills, take stage.
