From May 24 to June 10, Scott Walker’s impressively eccentric, asburd 2012 record Bish Bosch will be reinterpreted as a multimedia show at the Sydney Opera House for the Vivid Sydney festival. Titled Bish Bosch Ambisymphonic, it’s a collaboration between Walker and British mixed-media artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.
Ambisymphonic will reimagine Walker’s Bish Bosch tracks “Pilgrim”, “Epizootics!”, “Tar”, and “Dimple”. According to a press release, the tracks have been “remixed and spatialised into an Ambisonic symphony… plunging the listener into near darkness and opening them up to an all-consuming sonic experience.” The show makes use of a geodesic dome with multidirectional speakers.
