Pianist, artist collaborate

■ Pianist Kyle Shepherd and photographer Lindsey Appolis will perform at the Young Blood Gallery today, Thursday May 11, at 8pm. During this live performance, called Aware: The Transient Beauty of Things, projections of Apollis, images of the city of Tokyo, Japan, provide a canvas for Shepherd’s sound design. “Japan is the country I have most frequently toured to, so I’m really looking forward to exploring some sounds that evoke the city at the Youngblood Gallery in Cape Town, along with projections of Lindsey Appolis’ great photographs from his Tokyo series. I always love doing things outside of the clubs, concert halls and jazz world in general. The Youngblood gallery is a perfect space for these type of collaborations,” said Kyle. Tickets cost R150 at the door, and R130 pre-booked. For reservations, email info@youngblood-africa.com or call 021 424 0074.
