Standing in the Shadows of MONA - Revelator Major Creative Work uri icon

abstract

  • As part of a major concert event at MONA, Andrew Legg formed a new contemporary ensemble (Revelator) to perform the new creative works that have been generated as part of his IRGS and now REGS. This music seeks to recontextualise African American gospel music within a secular Australian performance paradigm. Revelator is made up of the REGS team: Michael Spiby - guitar and vocals
    Stewart Long - Drums
    Tony Featherstone - Hammond
    Martin Duffy - Bass
    Andrew Legg - piano, guitar and vocals Spiby and Legg write the music together initially, referencing African American music tradition and culture, with the remainder of the ensemble contributing to song construction during the initial recording and subsequent post production processes. Three original songs were performed at this event: Take Me To the Other Side
    Brand New Joy
    High On A Mountain
