Lismore musician/filmmaker Tom Avery has followed up the recent release of his documentary Ocean Music with a dance video set at Bentley, and a reggae music clip showcasing Lismore’s colourful street art.

The Bentley clip, set high on a hill in the area the community has vowed to defend against gas mining, features Indigenous dancer Shelton Johnson, summoning the spirit world through dance.

Avery, aka Blakboi, produced the clip and also plays the music  – beats, guitar and didgeridoo.

In the second release, Avery, is shown spray-painting the song title, Soul Fire, on a bridge pillar, before wandering through the back alleys of Lismore.

It’s not the first time Avery has focused on street art.

In September he released a time lapse film of the mural completed by artists Justin Livingston (Julla) and Jeremy Austin.

The pair took four days to complete the mural, transforming the drab 28-metre concrete wall into a showdown between natural and automated forces.

The mural was completed for the Northern Rivers Science Hub at the recent Arts vs Science event.
