Music for... Immersion by Deepfaith
‘Music for...’ is one of two Opera House Spotify playlist series where we ask friends of the House to curate playlists based on a theme of their choice: music for a particular moment, place or feeling.
Beginning life with musician Jamie xx in his London studio, Deepfaith is a one-of-a-kind audiovisual project led by Daniel Stricker (Midnight Juggernauts), Byron Spencer and Christopher Colonna (Bumblebeez), with contributions from Kirin J Callinan and Touch Sensitive. Alongside DeepFaith's digital commission for Sydney Opera House's Stream series Shortwave, the team of creative powerhouses have created a playlist well suited to a post-apocalyptic dream that welcomes outsiders, outliers and outlanders.
It takes a special sort of playlist to work in Henryk Górecki, Deftones and Queen and still make perfect sense... but this one does.
Let us guide you...
...away from this suburban existence.
Sink deeper, let everything flow away.

Feel your muscles relaxing... becoming loose... your limbs are feeling heavy... your eyelids feel very heavy.
Imagine that you are near the ocean... just before sunrise. Perhaps you are on the beach... or a dock. The ocean is very calm. Most of the water looks very smooth, but you can see small ripples, where gentle, peaceful waves roll in toward the shore.
When you are awake and alert, you can return to your usual activities, knowing that you can return to this place in your mind whenever you want to relax.
