The Making of Sound + Vision at The Sydney Opera House

Apr. 10, 2016

On Sunday January 31, the iconic Sydney Opera House Concert Hall hosted over 1,200 music and art lovers for the inaugural Sound + Vision event.

The large-scale Sound + Vision saw musicians Empress Of, Banoffee, Oscar Key Sung and Charles Murdoch take the stage, collaborating with visual artists Nonotak, Tin&Ed and Prue Stent. Each pairing performed an immersive and unique set, powered by a suite of technology fusing music and artwork via motion sensors, midi triggers and audio manipulation.

Both the event and creative process have been captured in a behind-the-scenes The Creators Project video feature. Speaking to the artists involved, the footage illustrates the technology and imagination that makes such a project possible.

To further resonate with Australian millennials, COTY and HM Communication Group have engaged globally recognised VICE fashion vertical i-D to help launch Calvin Klein’s new ck2 fragrance. It takes the form of a multi-faceted campaign delivering native content, influencer blogger outreach, and high impact, contextual media.

Centered on ck2’s celebration of #the2ofus, the i-D photography-led content includes features on what it means to be young in Australia in 2016 (via a series of ‘Straight Ups’ in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide), a shoot with brother and sister duo Jeet and Otis Pavlovic, portraits of inspiring friends, partners, couples and duos.

Editorial focussing on the evolution of the Calvin Klein brand and the cultural impact of their scents concluded the campaign.

Beyond native, a range of local fashion influencers have been engaged via members of the VICE Bloggers Network, including Spook MagazineSomething You Said, and Citizens of the World — who have produced their own content interpreting #the2ofus in their own way.

ck2 brand media ran throughout the entire six week campaign period as high impact placements across the VICE Media Network.
