WA Museum Boola Bardip in collaboration with Tura presents a special third edition of Aesoteric featuring acclaimed Australian icons, The Necks.
“They will change you, if you let them” — The Guardian
Take a seat under the soaring skeleton of Otto the blue whale and breathe deeply as The Necks perform two separate and completely original long-form improvisations over the course of one unforgettable night.
In a career spanning more than 30 years, The Necks have carved out a world-wide reputation as purveyors of an utterly transporting kind of improvised trance which leaves audiences simultaneously transfixed and rejuvenated.
“The greatest trio on earth” — New York Times
Defying genre and convention, The Necks combine keys (Chris Abrahams), bass (Lloyd Swanton) and drums (Tony Buck) to create a meditative and immersive musical experience.
The trio have released 21 studio albums across their storied 30 plus year career, including the ARIA Award-winning Drive By (2003) and Chemist (2006). The band also composed the ARIA-nominated soundtrack to the cult Australian film The Boys, and of their most recent works, Body (2018), is praised by Pitchfork as “one of the most powerful albums in the band’s catalogue” and, Three (2020), described by The Quietus as “so rich in timbre, texture and well-placed interval that the experience is stiflingly psychedelic”.
Visually, Hackett Hall will be transformed with lighting installation by Advanced Production Engineering and projections by multimedia artist and creative coder Steve Berrick.
