Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Room 40.


Four music acts. One Night. Open Frame 2024. Pay what you wish. 


An incredible line-up of four great acts - Carl Stone, Hand To Earth, Chihei Hatakeyama and Nyokabi Kariũki. 


One of the true godfathers of American electronic music, Carl Stone has literally sculpted the possibilities of rhythm, texture and harmony. 


Hand to Earth is a call to open ears: eluding genre, traversing continents and fusing ancient and contemporary. At its heart are Yolgnu manikay (song cycles), a 40,000+ year-old oral tradition from South East Arnhem Land, northern Australia. 


Chihei Hatakeyama is a renowned ambient composer from Tokyo. He is responsible for a catalog of shimmering, oceanic works that build upon minimalist structures.  


Kenyan sound artist Nyokabi Kariuki is part of an emergent generation of eclectic sound explorers, expanding pathways into zones of experimental and contemporary sonic traditions.


Additional Information: 
This is a General Admission Standing show. You can choose to stand or sit on the floor. A limited number of cushions will be provided.

Brisbane Powerhouse is Queensland’s home for contemporary culture, a magnificent power station of the 1920s reborn as an arts centre on the Brisbane River.


As Brisbane City Council’s premier arts venue, the much-loved building stages more than 1250 performances a year including a program of festivals, as well as hundreds of events and functions from weddings to conferences, all the while housing heritage-listed graffiti, riverside bars and restaurants, visual arts exhibitions and of course the stories of all who have ventured, laughed and shared memories within its living walls.
