SEEKAE – LIVE IN THE UTZON ROOM PT 1
Sydney based electronic trio Seekae first set foot at the Sydney Opera House as part of Graphic Festival 2011, a 2 day celebration of the graphic world’s most exciting popular culture, print, pixel and pop creators. Composing a new, original score for the Silent Comics series, Seekae performed behind a projection of Nathan Jurevicius’ cult comic Scarygirl in the Opera Theatre.
9 months later, 27 May 2012, Seekae will make their return to the Opera Theatre stage front and centre, this time gracing the House as part of Vivid LIVE. To celebrate the occasion, we invited the band to perform an intimate sunrise session of new, yet-to-be heard songs and old favourites in the Utzon Room.
A lesser known venue amongst its larger counterparts, the Utzon Room’s 9 month design and construction culminated in the sole remaining wholly designed space by the late Jørn Utzon – commemorating the return of the Opera House’s original architect. Now, Seekae have returned with performances of ‘Yech’ and +Dome‘s ’3′, each song featuring a picturesque backdrop of Utzon’s signature natural timbres, a sparkling waterfront and the odd passing boat.
