(m)Ocean brings music to the surf

Surfers get the chance to star in their very own surf film during Gold Coast lifestyle event Bleach Festival, as part of (m)Ocean held in Burleigh Heads. 

 

Following a philosophy of surfing as performing art rather than competition, (m)Ocean brings live music to the scene of the surf. With a background in surf writing, creative director of the event Tim Baker, understands the important relationship between surf music and wave-riding: 

“Many surfing creatives have explored the synergy between music and surfing…this has usually taken the form of surf movie soundtracks performed live at public screenings. I have thought for awhile, the clear next step in this exploration is to marry live music with live surfing.” 

This is exactly what (m)Ocean aims to do, with improvised musical performances by Band Of Frequencies, Kim Churchill, and Dave Rastovich. It’s the combination of music and the process of surfing that signifies a non-competitive, co-operative aspect of surf culture, which Baker feels is especially important to reinforce.
