Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots. These days, to give their parents the shits, the kids are wearing Crocs. With socks. They’re going for comfort.

The Dream Drone is a unique and specific sound created using Australia’s iconic traditional instrument, the didgeridoo or yidaki.

Well-known local musician Si Mullumby is entering his twentieth year of playing didgeridoo. Having toured Australia, Japan and Europe many times with the high-energy dance band Wild Marmalade, 2012 sees the beginning of a new chapter in Si’s career. Working together with longtime friend and designer of the YiDaChi range of didgeridoos, Jon Worsley, they create a nourishing and warm environment, a place for people to become aware on the inside.

The Dream Drone is a sound that takes the listener on an inner journey that is as varied and individual as there are people on the planet. This is a 90-minute lie-down sound experience. The lights are dimmed and participants are emerged in a vibrant sea of sound.

Bring a mat and a blanket. Seating available. Limited places.

Friday, 8pm at the Byron Theatre at the Community Centre. Tix at the venue or online: www.byroncentre.com.au.
