Presented by BLEACH*

Presented by BLEACH*

Triple Grammy-winning musician Tim Munro and internationally acclaimed composer Thomas Green join forces to deliver a musical masterpiece for the final night of BLEACH*.

As dusk descends on North Burleigh Beach, wander along the sand, and let the celestial sounds of an eight-piece electric guitar outfit wash over you. The transcendental performance begins with a simple, singular melody, before rising to a crescendo, building like the crashing waves that fringe the stage. The song? It’s one you know, but this redinition is like nothing you’ve ever heard before.

”captivating,” “brilliant”
The New York Times

Tim Munro

Tim Munro is a Brisbane-based, triple-Grammy-winning musician. As flautist, writer, broadcaster, and teacher, he treats audiences as equals, welcoming them into musical worlds with passion, intelligence and humour. Tim is committed to large-scale, immersive projects that put listeners at the center of the musical experience. He co-directed Crowd Out Chicago, which drew a choir of 1000 untrained singers from 43 of Chicago’s 50 wards. He has directed several of John Luther Adams’ immersive works, including songbirdsongs, Ten Thousand Birds and Sila: The Breath of the World. With host of collaborators, he is developing the immersive sensory work, Rumble and Hum. Tim’s playing has been called “captivating,” “bravura” and “charismatic” (The New York Times). His recent album, Liminal Highway, with music by Pulitzer Prize finalist Christopher Cerrone, exploited Tim’s “expansive artistry” (The Wire). Upcoming releases include new works by uncategorisable trumpeter Peter Evans and post-punk musician David Reminick.
