Albert Hall, Launceston

Australian premiere

$35 + booking fee

Mofo godfather Brian Ritchie says Gotye is ‘a true artist’. He and his pals will gather in concert to honour the late, great French electronic composer and pop visionary, Jean-Jacques Perrey, with a pre-synth extravaganza celebrating the Ondioline—an early, and now rare, electronic instrument.

Gotye, a budding Ondiolinist himself, will perform as part of the Ondioline Orchestra, featuring Rob Schwimmer on theremin/keyboard, vintage synth expert Joe McGinty and members of indie pop band Zammuto. Presented in a double bill with Skin Migration by Tannery, the Tasmanian Taiko and Leather Orchestra.
