Is it a film? Is it a soundtrack? It's so much more. The latest collab between acclaimed multi-media artist Jon Tarry and Australian musician Dom Mariani, 'Marco Polo Aeroporto', premiered virtually across the globe at the Venice Biennale this week.
The creation is a sonic and visual meditation on the theme of 'how we live/move together', and was launched in the CITYX Venice Italian Virtual Pavilion. Featuring melodic, atmospheric guitar and images of Marco Polo Airport and the Venice causeway, there's also a surprise passenger... is it Spidercrab?
Spend five minutes and transform your view of how we live and move in the world today. Watch the clip here.
It's a haunting, multi-layered ode to metamorphosis; a soundscape with a melody that will entrap you. Spidercrab, the latest track from the acclaimed Dom Mariani-Jon Tarry collaboration, Baggage Handler.
Spidercrab is the soundtrack to a visual art installation premiering at the Venice Biennale Architettura 2021 on Saturday 4 September, and to be shown a the upcoming Venice Film Festival.
Stream or download it now. Then tune in for the live event from Venice and simultaneously in Los Angeles and Perth, Western Australia.
