Creative Agency: Intersections of music, art and design

The Brisbane music scene has long been defined by its highly collaborative, do-it-yourself approach to making music. Rather than head south to join the big record companies of Sydney and Melbourne, “the stayers” made the most of Brisbane.

This attitude wasn’t just reserved for recording and producing music, it extended itself to all aspects of the creative endeavors with artists and designers contributing their creative energy to supporting the industry.

Hear about how the intersections of music, design and fashion forged by a close-knit and creatively vibrant music scene from the people who were living it. Guests include Brisbane-born filmmaker David Barker who directed Powderfinger’s first ever music video Reap What You Sow, writer and producer Caroline Gardam who has documented Brisbane’s music fashion tribes from the grunge rock aesthetic to raver culture, Tim Steward, vocalist and guitarist of indie heroes Screamfeeder, who also turned his deft hand to album cover and poster art and Patience Hodgson, lead singer of The Grates.
