Following their acclaimed sold out show at Lizottes last month Steve & Gareth are joined onstage by music legends Barton Price (The Models) & Roger Mason (Icehouse) to render their unique musical creation. It is an entirely new and esoteric body of work, evoking a living connection to the past which resonates with us all.
The live performance includes pieces from both albums, reconstructed to suit the live format, and will be presented as a complete 90 minute set with no support act. The chemistry of these four musicians is undeniable as they harness their diverse musical influences.
Songs from Another Life (Music of Antiquity) is the second collaborative album by Steve Kilbey and Gareth Koch. It follows their successful debut Chryse Planitia earlier this year.
These two artisans have produced a unique musical creation – an esoteric masterpiece which is difficult to define. It is an entirely new body of work, evoking a living connection to the past which resonates with us all.
In Steve’s words on the liner notes to the LP he says:
“Working with language scholars and local musicians, we have attempted to bring these ancient songs alive. They have rendered the songs in a manner that is comprehensible to the modern listener. The songs and recordings represent the thoughts and sounds of a distant antiquity. Here then is the past – and now the past is here.”
