Sydney Opera House To Premiere Scott Walker's Bish Bosch: Ambisymphonic

Scott Walker has teamed up with British mixed-media artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard to create Bish Bosch: Ambisymphonic, an utterly unique and immersive sonic re-imagining of his recent album, Bish Bosch.
 
Receiving its world premiere at this year's Vivid LIVE in Sydney, running from May 24th - June 10th (performances start at 5pm each night and entrance will be free), it's Scott like you have never heard him before.
 
Since the 1960s, Scott Walker has scaled the heights of pop superstardom as a Walker Brother, produced some of the most revered solo albums of the late-sixties, coasted on his laurels during the seventies, then metamorphosed into something very different with the forward thinking albums of Climate of Hunter (1984), Tilt (1995), The Drift (2006), and most recently, Bish Bosch (2012).
 
For Walker, there's never any looking back, and that determination to keep pushing forward, testing his limits (and those of his select band of musicians and production collaborators) has resulted in some of the most visceral, inventive and electrifying music of the twenty-first century.
 
In a rare move, Walker has opened the doors for his recordings to be taken even further with four tracks from Bish Bosch having now been remixed and spatialised into an Ambisonic symphony.
 
Forsyth & Pollard have created an experience that is totally uncompromising and transcendent. The resulting piece presents Walker's world of unparalleled depth and originality, plunging the listener into near darkness and opening them up to an all-consuming sonic experience. Enlisting Arup to create a state-of-the-art, purpose built, geodesic dome of multidirectional speakers, programmed by Raj Patel and Terence Caulkins with Scott's long term co-producer Peter Walsh working to painstakingly ensure that Scott's original vision is preserved.
