Experience live music like never before

By Administrator | 24 October 2013

We're inviting music lovers to a live gig at State Library of Queensland, designed especially for people who are deaf or hearing impaired.

On Friday 15 November, popular Brisbane bands The Gin Club, The Stress of Leisure and Jakarta Criers will take to the stage for 4Senses, a multi-sensory performance that uses sight and touch to make music accessible to everyone, including people with a hearing impairment.

The event will use film track projections, visual light shows, and subwoofer seats to bring the joy of live music to people who might not normally have a chance to experience it.

SLQ is delighted to partner with 4Senses and Deaf Australia to present this inspiring event.

We believe music is more than one dimensional. Great live music is about the energy in the room and the way performers and the crowd build that energy together, and our aim is to extend this experience out for everyone.

We’re thrilled to have such prominent acts as The Gin Club, The Stress of Leisure and Jakarta Cries involved in the project, and can’t wait to hear, see and feel their music as it takes over the library.

Music has a magical ability to bring people together, and can be central to expressing our identity as individuals, as communities and as a culture. For the past six months, SLQ has been celebrating and exploring this quality, through the exhibition program Live! Queensland band culture.

4Senses will be the last event in the Live! exhibition series of events, which closes on 17 November, and will definitely send the exhibition off with a bang!

4Senses is an 18+ only event. A cash bar available on site. Tickets are $30, with all profits donated to Deaf Australia.

When: Fri 15 Nov, 7pm | Where: SLQ Gallery, level 2, State Library of Queensland | Tickets: $30, bookings
