Nick Zinner / Sydney Festival
'41 Strings'
Directed by Daniel Askill

Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ guitarist Nick Zinner composed the extraordinary 41 Strings in response to the 41st anniversary of Earth Day.

Daniel was commissioned by the Sydney Festival to create a video work for the performance of 41 Strings at the Sydney Opera House.

The video work spanned the composition’s four movements and also IIII, a drum circle led by Hisham Akira Bharoocha (Soft Circle, The Boredoms) which featured in the first half of the program.

The concept involved a line up of 10 moving head projectors that would be mapped across the domed ceiling of the Opera House Concert Hall.
