deepblue orchestra. Canberra Theatre Centre, 13 August 2010
Deepblue promised to look like an orchestra, act like a band, feel like a movie. But it understated.
Enriching every piece were surprisingly well-synchronised visuals. And throughout moved the musicians: rarely in traditional poses, usually afoot, often dancing steps difficult even without an instrument occupying both hands. Deepblue capably sustained Barber's Adagio at a pace that treated the audience's sonic palate to the aural equivalent of golden syrup, butter, and wild blackberry.
