A special concert of music bridging religions, continents and cultures is coming to Kendall.
Mid North Coast Refugee Support Group is delighted to present The Bridge Project.
This new musical collective expands upon the idea of the musical bridge, bringing together seemingly disparate cultures and personalities to create a singular, cohesive unit.
Comprised of a Turkish Muslim, an Australian Christian, and an Israeli Jew, The Bridge Project does more than cross a chasm; The Bridge Project eliminates it entirely.
They’re playing at Kendall Hall at 8pm on Friday April 21. Tickets at the door from 7.30pm, price $25/$20.
Throughout history, bridges have symbolized a myriad of emotions: From building bridges to burning bridges, from bridging the gap to bridging the past with the future, the bridge has captured our collective imaginations as a rich, evocative metaphor.
In music, the bridge is often used to connect sections of a composition, to create a whole from individual elements, to take the listener from one place to another.
The members of The Bridge Project met through their mutual work for audio software developer Waves, recipient of a 2011 Technical GRAMMY® Award.
Despite the fact that the project’s three members had never met in person, that did not prevent them from embarking together on a mutual journey, recording their album of acoustic music with the help of their personal home studios and the internet.
For a bit over a year, they sent each other multi-track recording files and communicated through email and Skype.
Though they came from different cultures and musical backgrounds, their long-distance collaborations bridged the gaps between them, resulting in a harmonious mixture of multicultural musical magic.
