EGO & Ribongia present 'THE IMAGINARIUM'
An immersive journey through sight and sound… part dance party, part art gallery, part cinema - the show takes audiences on a musical journey while the space around them transforms into an array of worlds, real and not yet known.
Combining Ribongia’s energetic live instrumentation and musical prowess with Ego’s surreal visual production and audio-visual performance to create an adventure unparalleled in this universe or the next. The pair twist and turn through foreign lands, under oceans, and over deserts, from meditative lows to raptured highs - chasing ideas and musical styles from their origins, near and far, to the fringes of the universe and back again. The flood of sights and sounds bringing every surface and particle in the room to life, taking the room and the audience through a metamorphosis of their imagination.
Sometimes video artist, sometimes DJ, EGO has spent the last few years wowing audiences around Australia and across the world with his live performances and visual work. As a video artist his knack for high intensity, cut and paste, multi-media collages has seen him exhibit work at Sydney’s Vivid Festival, and kept him in high demand for music videos from labels such as Modular, Sweat it Out, and Future Classic as well as commissions from big brands such as 7-11, Red Bull, and Nissan. As an audio-visual DJ his live sets have taken him from nightclubs to art galleries to the main stages of Falls Festival, Splendour in the Grass and Field Day; to across the world, playing venues in Sth America, Sth Africa, Bali and New Zealand. His innovative use of visuals in his performances saw global DJ brand Serato make him an ambassador in 2015. In 2016 Ego was named an Australian finalist in the Redbull Thre3Style DJ competition, while spending much of the year collaborating closely with Paces on his much acclaimed live show.
Italian born, Sydney based producer Ribongia makes music to make you move. His unique take on world electronic music and Afro-leaning sound has seen him garner support from tastemakers like Skrillex’s Nest HQ, Nina Las Vegas, Aston Shuffle and Sinden and airplay across the country on every radio station worth its salt. Ribongia has collaborated with hyped producers Clap! Clap! and Populous, done official remixes for Stanton Warriors, Andy Bull, Sampology, Thundamentals, Ngaiire and Lanie Lane and shared stages with Flying Lotus, Africa Hi-Tech, Gaslamp Killer, Opiuo and Shigheto. A regular fixture of Australian music festivals, Ribongia’s full live show incorporating synths, samplers, marimba & an array of instruments, is compulsively addictive. Ribongia saw out 2014 with his debut national headline tour in support of his It Began EP, welcomed 2015 performing at Field Day, showcased his followup Escapisms EP at FBi’s 2016 SMAC Festival and most recently toured Europe with Hermitude.
