"Original and provocative" Brian Eno
At the forefront of UK new wave classical music, Belle Chen is as uncategorisable as her music is captivating.
An associate of the Royal Academy of Music, Belle’s compositions retain the beauty of classical piano while simultaneously traversing avant-garde and electronica to embody the world’s changing natural wonders. Through use of electric keys and synthesizers, visual installations by artist Mario Radev and design by Nick Robertson, Belle is joined by off-stage projectionist Jayden Sutherland to bring her arrangements to life in vivid colour.
Featuring stunning piano and immersive visuals, this incomparable musician takes audiences from tropical jungles, to shifting coastlines, to coral reefs. A celebration of our planet in all its splendor, see the stage transformed through an enthralling synergy of music and sound art for this Australian premiere performance.
