in THE COLOUR WHEEL, we explore the attempts over history to prove the 'connection' between music and colour - examine the art, music, and theories of Kandinsky, Klee, Schoenberg, and Bowral born artist Roy de Maistre.
In the early years of the 20th century there were terrific advances in physics with the Special and General theories of Relativity and the advent of quantum mechanics, uncovering the very building blocks of matter which totally changed the way in which humans observed the world. Around the same time, a similar revolution took place in both Muisc and Art, along with a desire to deconstruct formality and structure.
THE COLOUR WHEEL is performed by myself and an ensemble of electric guitar players and painters.
