On today’s show we’re honoured to have Aarti Jadu as our guest! This show will be extra special as Jadu will be performing a live set mixed by @prissy_amphlett and @lara.sulo.
Jadu has been truly an influential figure in the Naarm’s art scene. Her interactive and highly engaging work explores various ideas about human connection, devotion and healing. Her latest performance at @rising.melbourne Festival left quite an impression on us and thought to share it in this post.
Jadu composes cinematic, atmospheric pieces played live through electronic instrumentation, on occasion conducting ensembles. Pairing classical elements, currently referencing chamber music, vedic, baroque and various folk traditions, with industrial synthesizers, 808 and pop autotune, the work is idiosyncratic with both articulate and incomprehensible lyrics and convergence of melody and texture, metric and arrhythmic phases.
