As part of MSO's NAIDOC week celebrations for 2023, award-winning electronic duo Electric Fields - Zaachariaha Fielding (lead vocals) and Michael Ross (producer) - will return to Hamer Hall for an encore performance of last year's sensational concert with the MSO.
On Saturday 8 July 2023, under the baton of conductor Vanessa Scammell, Electric Fields and the MSO will perform song cycles of the duo's work, arranged for orchestra by the MSO's 2022 Cybec Young Composer in Residence, Alex Turley.
Described as 'emotionally moving and breathtaking', Electric Fields' music combines pop, soul and electronica with intimate storytelling. Zaachariaha's extraordinary vocals often include the traditional languages of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara people as Z channels a performance unlike any other.
The duo recently performed 'We the People', the official theme song of the 2023 Sydney World Pride, to a crowd of 20,000 people at the Opening Concert at the Domain in Sydney.
Producer Michael Ross says the duo are honoured to take part in the MSO's NAIDOC week celebrations for 2023. "After the huge success and joy of last year's concert, we can't wait to once again share our music with the deep textures of the orchestra." Michael says. "The performance will include our pop compositions, along with traditional songs drawing through the root systems of Zaachariaha's community, creating a sonic landscape from the desert sands."
