POSTCARDS FROM THE WEST Let’s get archival

Postcards from the West
is an exciting new event from RTRFM and the State Library of Western Australia billed as ‘an audio-visual exploration of WA history’.

Mark in Saturday, December 15 for this one-off event some of the state’s finest experimental musical talent take to the vast film archives of the state library, showcasing WA’s incredible history and composing brand new soundtracks for the footage, playing live in the Studio Underground at the State Theatre Centre.

Featured on the line up is the awe-inspiring post-metal of Tangled Thoughts of Leaving, the other-worldly electronica of Akioka, the avant-beats of Diger Rokwell, the improvisational Orphans and the wonderfully weird Kate Pass Kohesia Ensemble.

All acts known for their boundary pushing approaches to sound, they will bring their distinctive sonic styles to newly composed scores and archival film footage from the state library’s collections.

From the depths of the WA desert to its shimmering, expansive coastlines; from the elements that have forged it to the people that have shaped Western Australia into a truly magical state, the
state library’s collections will be brought to new life as part of this rare one-off audio visual performance.

Postcards from the West is taking place on Saturday, December 15 at the Studio Underground at the State Theatre Centre. Tickets available from
