Pearl

Pearl Live – The Emerald Ruby x Abhaya Sky

Overview

Join The Emerald Ruby and Abhaya Sky for the live premier of “Pearl”.

The sonic portion of this multiartform work will be brought to life by Abhaya Sky’s glittering guitar, The Emerald Ruby’s lilting flute and their ethereal voices. This live show also features songs by both Abhaya Sky and the Emerald Ruby, and pieces from her series of work “Folksy Dreams”.

Imbued with the ethereal textures of folk music, ornate baroque instrumentals, and bardic storytelling, the sonic palette of multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and ABC Classic commissioned composer The Emerald Ruby shares musical milieu with Sufjan Stevens, Joanna Newsom and Missy Higgins. Whimsical in nature, her gentle songs are often juxtaposed by dark undertones cultivated in the chaos of late-diagnosed neurodivergence. A kaleidoscope of influences nourishes every performance from this multi-genre powerhouse; the hazy virtuosity of 18th-century French flute music, chaotic abstractions of a moonlit jazz jam, and trading traditional jigs and reels at a folk session are drenched with a mood only decades of musical adventures along Australia’s east coast can inscribe.

Abhaya Sky is the moniker of Newcastle composer, performer and choir leader Christopher Sutherland. In this project, he traverses the lands between dreamy folk and expansive electronic fields, alternately singing songs of the depths of human life, and weaving electro-acoustic instrumentals that offer space and perspective.
