The Project Scope
SWELL, live music reimagined
Live music, reimagined. See the portfolio page SWELL for more info.
Experiential, immersive and unlike anything else – Swell is not a festival, yet delivers the transformative feeling of being enveloped with sunshine and sound. It is not a show, yet values quality production and acoustics. It is not an underground party, yet emanates an experimental, anything-goes vibe. It is a multi-sensory musical soundscape.
Evocative and genre-defying, over six nights of MMW, Swell exposes what is musically emerging in our city: be it entirely breakthrough, the current craze, a local treasure or an established artist exploring the unorthodox.
Celebrate the ingenuity and boundless talent of local artists as you explore intimate, unique spaces filled with music in the heart of the CBD. Taking cues from live interactive theatre blended together with interior architecture, sound leads design at Swell as the normal boundaries associated with performance are broken down.
Participate in the hidden and unfamiliar; discover a new musical love in an unconventional way. This is a fresh take on the live music experience.
