Arts Centre Melbourne & Australian Art Orchestra presentsMeeting Points Series: im/modestyFeaturing Shoeb Ahmad
Get lost in a swirl of dream pop and storytelling with Shoeb Ahmad.
A staple of the Canberra underground music scene, Shoeb proudly identifies as a person of Bangladeshi heritage and a transgender woman. Her music is known for exploring deeply personal experiences and vulnerabilities, in an evocative mix of acoustic and electronic indie pop.
Her latest project im/modesty will premiere as a live performance work with contemporary music ensemble, Australian Art Orchestra. Originally developed as a multi-speaker installation during a residency in Kerala, Southern India, this work is inspired by the cultural barriers people from the Indian sub-continent face when exploring their sexuality.
This ground-breaking work features text spoken by three voices in different stages of life – interspersed with electronic music and atmospheric recordings from the streets of India.
The talented multi-instrumentalist emerged back in the mid-2000s when she released a string of exceptional bedroom recordings. Since then she hasn’t stopped creating, releasing the intricate and moving new album 'quiver' earlier this year.
The Meeting Points Series is a creative collaboration between Arts Centre Melbourne and Australian Art Orchestra with renowned trumpeter, composer and Artistic Director of the Australian Art Orchestra, Peter Knight curating the series. It features cutting-edge artists from Australia and Asia accompanied by Australia’s leading contemporary music ensemble, the Australian Art Orchestra.
Hidden spaces throughout Arts Centre Melbourne are transformed into intimate pop-up venues. From secluded rehearsal rooms to historic foyers and the famed Fairfax Studio – no two concerts are alike.
