An 8 piece band will light up the Lesedi stage on Fri. 2nd and Sat. 3rd August for the official launch of Steve Dyer’s latest project:
Using instrumentation that includes 2 drummers, overlaying piano and keyboard parts, altered piano sounds as well as a trumpet/soprano, tenor and baritone saxophone horn section, Steve has created a remarkable and multi-textured soundscape. It is his offering of a window to a different world.
“Genesis of a different world” aims to creatively define a new future. We need to devote energy and attention to shaping progressive alternatives to the existing order. The challenges of the past and present should be seen through the prism of how to overcome them in shaping measurable and manageable changes.
This musical offering hopes to encourage and partner with creatives as well as others from all walks of life to envisage a future from our own individual and collective perspectives. There is a battle for the soul of the globe. Exclusionism and isolation will not prevail – Positive collectivism will.
Genesis of a different world is the story being told.
