Imagine having the biggest global dance tracks of all time performed by a full 60-piece orchestra alongside live vocalists with a mesmerising laser light show. If that sounds like paradise to you then you won’t want to miss Synthony.
In just over four years Synthony has gone from one sell-out show in Auckland to annual tours at iconic venues across Australia. For Melbourne we were hosted at the stunning Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
A truly unique and immersive experience, Synthony No. 3 is a celebration of the last 30 years of electronic dance music, backed by the full might of a large-scale orchestra. Beginning the night Mobin Master kicked the night off with some great throw-back tunes, and was then quickly followed by party-starting duo Super Disco Club who got the audience up on their feet with plenty of catchy mashups.
Then it was time for the full Synthony show. Conducted by Sarah-Grace Williams, the gig featured the live vocals of Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Rogue Traders) Ilan Kidron (Potbelleez), Thandi Phoenix Cassie McIvor, Greg Gould and Matty O. Having the live vocalist element for the shows is so crucial for bringing the amazing energy to the stage.
Synthony No.3 featured a great mix of classic dance tracks like Darude’s Sandstorm to brand new music from Disclosure, Eric Prydz, Flume, Calvin Harris and many more. Looking around at the diverse crowd it really does have something for everyone.
We particularly loved hearing the covers of Daft Punk, Delerium’s Silence, Lola’s Theme from The Shapeshifters and an amazing cover of Flume & Disclosure’s You & Me. The packed audience was on their feet dancing non-stop for the entire show.
Synthony is a breathtaking fusion of electronic dance music, live orchestra, djs, vocalists, and immersive visuals. Don’t miss out on seeing this truly unique show as it tours Australia.
