Decade 15, Chapter III, in a 24 Decade History of Popular Music - a radical faerie realness ritual - by Taylor Mac, at Forum Melbourne, for Melbourne Festival. Photographs by Sarah Walker Photography. 
The epic, queer, durational, performance art genius of Taylor Mac is something incredible to witness and magnificent to be a part of. I am honoured to have been asked to sing three duets with Taylor Mac last night, as well as a solo piece, along with the phenomenally talented orchestra lead by Matt Ray. I am overwhelmed, grateful, exhilarated and thrilled. Thank you to all at Pomegranate Arts, Melbourne Festival, and the production team of 24 Decades, who made this musical embrace happen. 
Worship the verb, not the noun. Let the queering commence.

Sometimes I just sit at the keyboard and make noises for a while.  This noise was inspired by Mama Alto's cover of the banger jazz standard,  Summertime.

"Let's just stay here, all night, and let's just sing every song."

This image of @mama.alto reminded me of my favorite music symbol, the rest, which represents an interval of silence. One of the most powerful forces in music 🎶 is the ability to be silent between song.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing @mama.alto and @tiffanniwalton aka Miss Chief at the @thenationaltheatre in St. Kilda. It's going on four years since meeting @mama.alto and each time I see her and Miss Chief perform I feel so honored to be a part of what they put out in the world. 
The stage, for me, has always represented the ultimate space for freedom of expression. Working with artists like Mama that vocalize love and compassion for one and other, encourage and demand change for those less privileged, and bring together diverse audiences that unite in music, solidarity, and laughter is a total blessing. 
More images from this live set coming soon.

Thank you to everyone who attended National Theatre Melbourne presents EXQUISITE: An Evening with Mama Alto. What a marvellous evening we had together. 
Thank you to The Velvet Bunnies, our fabulous cocktail jazz trio, comprising Nicholas, Marty and Gordon. What a stunning contribution you made to our Old Hollywood, Jazz Age soirees in the beautiful theatre foyers. 
Thank you to Jayde Kirchert, Dean Worthington, Amelia Bartak, Nicholas Moloney and Alison for their role in initiating and shaping this show. 
Thank you to everybody at the National Theatre, including Peter McCoy, Linda Hum, Jarrod Rose, as well as Melissa, Gordon, Chris, Aaron, Natalie, Miranda, Serena, Liz, Magda, and all of our front of house superstars. It would literally not happen without the people behind the scenes and at front of house.

Thank you to my amazing support team including Benjamin, Michael, Jennifer, Lucinda, MJ and Zaky, as well as those who contributed to the success of the evening in myriad ways - including Moira, Tash, Tiara, Christopher, Seb, Alexand, Krishna, Corey, Rachel, and Longie. 
Thank you to my fabulous lighting designer for the night, John Collopy.

Thank you to our videographer Benjamin Strum, and our photographer Alexis Desaulniers-Lea - who took this fabulous image last night, with more to come. 
Thank you to Ilana, our magnificent Auslan interpreter. Access matters! 
Happy birthday to Jason, Lilac and Angela, who were celebrating their birthdays by attending our gala. What a thrill to share your special days with you.

Thank you to Longie, and to Sharon, Connor and Antonio, for the beautiful bouquets you gifted us. And thank you to Fong & Leanne for the flowers decorating the stage and foyers. 
Thank you to our executive producers, without whom nothing would be possible.

An enormous thank you, gratitude and love to my fierce, fabulous, mischievous musical directress, piano extraordinaire Miss Chief. You were stellar last night! 
I do hope I have not left anyone out in this post… I will definitely amend if so… 
Love, gratitude and music -
Rise Up Singing.
