CLICK HERE to download from GooglePlay

Blackchords held a remix competition during September/October online through social media -Facebook, Bandcamp etc and received an overwhelming number of entries from all over the world. The band were shocked at the response they received with remixes coming in from as far as Finland, UK, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Hungary, Netherlands and many parts of America as well as entries from around Australia.

The remixes came in varying styles from drum n bass to indie dance and from house to dub step – it was amazing to hear the song interpreted in so many different ways! The process of selection has been tough for the band as so many varying styles and versions of the song have been submitted but it’s also been a great process to see and hear how people from all over the world interpret the track.
 

The winning remix is by French producer, Patrick Georffroy (aka Rosa) from Paris with the winning mix being serviced to radio and music media around the country next week.

The enduring influence on Australian history, music and politics is recounted through rich imagery and stirring performances in this special live concert event.There is no denying the contribution that the Irish have made to Australian life. It has been certainly varied but rarely dull.This release is a CD + DVD capturing the live recording of Exile at Melbourne's Hammer Hall, and Qpac in Brisbane in 2016.

Wayfaring brings together Italian-Australian cellist Umberto Clerici with German-Australian guitarist Karin Schaupp, for a musical journey through a rich tapestry of cultures, ages and emotions.Clerici and Schaupp discovered an immediate musical connection when they first played together at Musica Viva’s annual festival several years ago. ‘It was a magical connection, as if we just knew each other musically, even though we hadn’t met before,’ says Schaupp. ‘It’s something very rare. We played a few pieces and decided we simply had to do this again. Last year we gave some recitals and built a program. Then we decided to make this album, and built a whole new program.’They settled on the linking idea of ‘songs that trace a path from birth to death, with everything in between’: a ‘wayfaring’ through life. Spending long hours in libraries combing through repertoire, they gradually whittled down their options: the final list expresses joy, grief and every emotion between. The repertoire stretches from the early baroque (Monteverdi and Caccini) to the present day, with contemporary works by two Australian composers: Elena Kats-Chernin’s Eliza Aria and A Flower’s Purpose by Katie Noonan, the singer-songwriter with whom Schaupp has toured and recorded. They also cover music by Dvořák, Rodrigo (a stunning song adapted by the composer himself from his beloved Concierto de Aranjuez), Rachmaninoff, Schubert and more. Track Listing:1. DVOŘAK Lasst mich allein (Let Me Be Alone) 2. BRAHMS Es steht ein Lind (There Stands a Lime Tree) 3. TRADITIONAL Wayfaring Stranger 4.
