Jack Nunn is launching his first album ‘Blue Sun’ in Sydney on 16th June with a live performance with a 3D hologram.
‘Blue Sun’ is calming, meditative piano – interwoven with cello, violin and sitar – creating rich and immersive soundscapes.
Jack Nunn’s album is different from what you might expect from the Atlantic Jaxx record label, started by the Grammy-award-winning duo Basement Jaxx.
Jack Nunn is launching his first album ‘Blue Sun’ in Sydney on 16th June with a free live performance – part of a collaboration with the digital light and sound artist Fergal Hanley and his installation, ‘The Harbour Watchman’. (Time: 7pm – place: here -33.856923, 151.210373)
The Watchman is a 3D ‘hologram’, the animation brought to life through 70,000 individually rendered particles, controlled by ‘Vizmap’ custom software, developed by Fergal.
‘Blue Sun’ will be played through ‘The Watchman’, with Jack playing live cello into the installation – the visuals reacting instantly to the music.
The event will be live streamed – so that people can watch around the world.

This 360 virtual reality video was filmed for the track ‘Awaken’ at sunrise from a hot air balloon over Australia.
Drones were used to film dream-like nature scenes for each of the other tracks on the album, giving you the chance to use technology to create some calming spacetime in your lives.
These videos can be found on a number of online platforms – as some video hosting platforms are censored in countries such as China. You can explore all of the platforms here.
