CITY JUNGLE
Presented by Melbourne Planetarium and Big West Festival.
Using the full technical glory of the skydome of Melbourne’s Planetarium, this is a special festival event not to be missed! City Jungle is a groundbreaking and unlikely project bringing together the two major forces in contemporary Australian percussion, Synergy (Sydney) and Speak Percussion (Melbourne), in collaboration with the hypnotic beats of Terminal Sound System and Noxious Aquatic to explore the dramatic and intricate sound world of Jungle and Drum’n’Bass.
Over two distinct sets, virtuosic live percussion and digital programming will thrash it out on stage to breathtaking visuals projected across the night sky in Melbourne’s one and only Planetarium.

City Jungle • Music by Synergy • Visuals by TokyoLove-In

Two of Australia’s super-percussion outfits come together to present their double vision of UK breakbeats 2011. Sydney’s Synergy has been at the cutting edge of music making since 1974, and Melbourne’s Speak Percussion have just celebrated an action-packed first 10 years.

Over two distinctive sets, virtuosic live percussion and digital programming will thrash it out on stage. The dark, brooding sounds of Terminal Sound System fuse with the darting rhythmic complexities and explosions from Speak Percussion. Synergy’s lush sound-world of marimbas, vibraphones, vocals, gongs, and futuristic electronic gadgets will be pitted against the raw power of the Jungle aesthetic. Those who know their subgenres can expect sounds from Futurist and Autonomic through to Doom n Bass — plus a couple of Rollers thrown in for good measure.
