WHAT THE PRESS SAY…

 

“What if your favourite performer was not eighty meters away from you, but only eight steps? What if we leave bigger, louder, faster to the huge EDM stages, and re-imagine what the future of genuine live music could look like?”

Rockstone Sessions stumbled across this new phenomenon called Swell, an interactive, evocative way of experiencing live music. During the Melbourne Music Week. In the cellars of a former woman’s hospital in Melbourne (Australia) is where the magic happens. In five bedroom sized rooms you are able to experience genres like, jazz, ghetto house, conga sounds and dreamy electro. While you are surrounded by performance, live-art and graphics that are projected on the walls of the cellars.”

What THE AUDIENCE SAY…

 
Huge congratulations on what for me was a true, pure, grass roots, cutting edge, contemporary cultural exhibit.
Laundry disco, peephole jazz, padded synth cell. Just a few stops on the Swell train tonight.
Big ups to Janenne for dreaming up this utopian musical mad house.
