Australian artist Andrew Kidman is a jack of all trades with a hand in the music, writing, painting, photography, surfboard-shaping and film industries. The Bleach festival sees Andrew combine two of his talents when the Currumbin SoundLounge presents one of the festival’s sessions this week.

The Windy Hills, the band Kidman plays in, released their debut record to coincide with his latest film in late 2010 and, as part of the Bleach festival program, the internationally renowned band brings a new element to the surf film experience by playing live with the screening.

Songs from the Ether features projections from two new surf film projects: Andrew Kidman’s Lost in the Ether and Patrick Trefz’s Idiosyncrasies. The Windy Hills will accompany these films with tracks from their eerie yet euphoric new record, Friend from Another Star.

Songs from the Ether promises to be another groundbreaking night in music, film and reverence for the sea. Duration 100min. The Windy Hills and Andrew Kidman will support The Break at the SoundLounge on Friday
