Melbourne Fringe Festival

“Immersion” | Bluestone Arts Venue, Footscray Victoria | Presented by 3 Shades Black

A unique experience, with music from minimalism to renaissance chant. Imagine a church, but with no pews. Imagine a concert with no stage. Imagine being surrounded by musicians. Now imagine you’re sitting on a beanbag, hot drink in your hand, being immersed in some of the greatest minimalist music ever written Melbourne Fringe Festival

The performance included Arvo Pärt’s ‘De Profundis’, Pérotin’s ‘Viderunt omnes’ and Terry Riley’s ‘In C’.

Bring a pillow, relax in a beanbag, lie at the feet of a tenor, enjoy a drink and be ensconced in our sound world.

3 Shades Black is made up of some of Melbourne’s finest classical musicians. They specialise in making contemporary and experimental classical music accessible and enjoyable to everyone.
