Quadraphonic sound, hosted at Byron Theatre for one night only.

Don’t miss the experience of this iconic album in its original mixing by the prolific Alan Parsons, presented in rare 360 degree Quadraphonic sound, hosted at Byron Theatre for one night only. 

You will hear parts of the album like never before, accompanied by a complimentary visual show, and be immersed in a one-of-a-kind event honouring possibly the most influential album in the history of 21st century western music.

In this one off event, following the complete presentation of the album, live musicians Pink Zinc Presents will accompany DJ Lordy Wardy to guide you through a unique Floyd-esque party atmosphere, as our exceptionally creative VJ’s ( DJs for your eyes) illuminate the space with a kaleidoscope of trippy ambient visuals. 

DJ Lordy Wardy has been a music and audio enthusiast for over 30 years. With adventurous taste and a fan of the special and unusual, he is relishing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to curate and perform this show. He will be laying down Pink Floyd tunes from their broad discography and embracing the spirit of these classic progressive sounds.

Pink Zinc Presents began as a hungry group of music students from SCU in Lismore back in 2009. In the early days of Pink Zinc you would find the performers regularly busking on the streets of Byron Bay. The band is renowned for its unique music aesthetic. Their standard of musicianship is consistently at its highest, with an ever-evolving framework of musicians, the vibe and sound of Pink Zinc Presents has evolved from the greatest influences in music history and features some of the top musicians of the area: Sarah Grant, Matt Day, Lucius Borich and Mike Mills.

So sit back, relax, take in the show, and then dance the night away.

Byron Theatre on March 9 from 7pm.
