Sympathy Orchestra – Sympathy In The ‘70s
Come and witness the sounds of Sympathy Orchestra like you’ve never heard them before!
Experience Adelaide’s legendary prog-rock instrumental band with quadraphonic sound just like in the ‘70s heydays. Join Julian, Ray, John and Istvan for a night of awesome original music.
For two nights only during the Adelaide Fringe, Sympathy Orchestra will present Sympathy In The ’70s; a two-hour concert of experimental/progressive, innovative and original instrumental rock, that has made the band the leading exponents of “proggie goodness” for over 15 years – but now in QUADRAPHONIC SOUND.
Using a quadraphonic PA rig designed and built for the band by Audio Maestro Pete Stephens of The Garage International, Sympathy Orchestra will blow your minds from every corner of the room playing pieces from their albums Rest In Pieces and Sword Machine.
With Pete in charge of the multiple quadraphonic joysticks you’ll never know where the sound is coming from or where it’s going to go.
Ray Smith’s lush strings will sweep over your head, Julian Barnett’s intricate guitar lines will twist and turn around your feet, John Appleby’s precise and empathetic drumming will pop from every part of the room and Istvan Nemeth’s 6-string bass notes will seem to be coming from inside your own chest.
This audio experiment is unlikely to be repeated. If you miss it, you’ll regret it.
Sympathy Orchestra performs Sympathy In The ‘70s at The Garage International @ NACC, 176 Tynte Street, North Adelaide, from 8.30pm on Fri Mar 13 and Sun Mar 15.
