THIS WEEKS INTERVIEW WITH ARTIST – OMEGACHILD
This week on The Bourne Collective I will be talking to Brisbane artist and producer Omegachild on the release of his new album “Postcards” and the short film “Waiting For Postcards”. Omegachild has set out on a journey across India to produce his new album and will be launching this feature in Brisbane on the 10th of June at New Globe Theatre.
Waiting For Postcards is a short film that follows the story of Omegachild – an emerging composer and electronic music producer from Brisbane – as he embarks on a journey through India to create an album on-the-fly inspired by both a growing unease with the daily grind at home, and the beautiful people and places in one of the craziest countries in the world.
Directed by award winning filmmaker and photographer Danny McShane, Waiting For Postcards was shot in a variety of locations all over India, in places as diverse as the snow capped mountains of the Himalayas to the dry Rajasthani desert near the Pakistan border.
The premiere screening of the film will coincide with the soundtrack release of Postcards, an ambient electronic exploration that takes cues from the daily sounds of a country at once bustling yet capable of eliciting deep introspection. It will be followed by an exhibition of photographs taken on 35mm film by Danny throughout the trip.
Launch: Tuesday 10th June, 2014
Venue: New Globe Theatre, 220 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley
