Lydian’s Space – Createability Project
Lydian’s Space is an insight into the life of Lydian Dunbar an electronic music artist who also works in theatre and creates cross platform artwork that has been exhibited in regional Australian galleries.
The travel show personality Alex Lyngaas was currently visiting Australia and he just happened to be living one street down from Lydian’s house in Bangalow, NSW.
So, Rest Your Eyes Productions invited Alex to come along and interview Lydian in his casual approach. We get to visit Lydian’s home, recording studio and his favourite hangout the Bangalow Pub. Alex Lyngaas get’s close and personal with Lydian asking him questions about his music, life and love.
Lydian is not shy to his share his personal stories on camera and by the end of the day Alex and Lydian have established a real bond with laughter, tears and big hugs.
Tralalablip band member and visual artist Mathew Daymond has also come on board with the film project to create some of his wonderful quirky illustrations to be used in the short film. Mathew joined Tralalablip in January 2008 and as well as performing vocals, audio cubes, white noise machine and sine wave synth Mathew is passionate about drawing. He has designed t-shirts, posters and record covers for the band over the last few years.
