Today was an odyssey of sonic discoveries – from intimate indie folk performances in dimly lit bars, to heart-thumping electronic beats that pulsated through my being. Most of the day was spent at the Powerhouse museum which was transformed into a universe of musical wonders. As the sun dipped below the horizon, Sydney’s cityscape was illuminated by the glow of neon lights as I physically exhausted, but emotionally electrified, made my way home, soaring on the wings of the amazing music and bands that I had witnessed, as part of SXSW Sydney.
