Live Gallery: Penelope Trappes at The White Bay Power Station as part of the 24th Biennale of Sydney 27.03.2024

Penelope Trappes

Tonight Australian-born, Brighton-based vocalist and producer, Penelope Trappes is performing at the White Bay Power Station as part of the Sydney Biennale.

Supporting Trappes is Bluetung, which is the project of Mitchell J.G. Reynolds: a musician and electronics technician originally from regional NSW, now based in Naarm/Melbourne.

Trappes is known for blending mesmerising ambient drones and evocative post-classical melodies with haunting, reverb-soaked vocal chants.

Trappes’ fourth album, ‘Heavenly Spheres,’ was released in April 2023 under her own label, Nite Hive. The album was crafted solely with piano, voice, and an antiquated reel-to-reel tape deck during a fortnight residency at Britten Pears Arts, situated in the residence once occupied by the esteemed composer, teacher, and musicologist Imogen Holst in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, UK.

The 24th Biennale of Sydney, dubbed ‘Ten Thousand Suns,’ showcases the transformative power of art across six iconic locations in Sydney. Tonight Trappes is performing at the heritage-listed White Bay Power Station, a relic of the early 20th century and once a bustling coal power station, which has opened its doors to the public for the first time in over a century. It’s a truly remarkable structure and well worth a visit.
