The Avalanches - Robbie Chater and Tony Di Blasi will be in conversation with Australian radio legend, Zan Rowe (triple j, Double J) along with conductor Nicholas Buc for a special panel unpacking the band’s past, present and future.

Luminary Artists in Residence Robbie Chater and Tony Di Blasi, left an indelible mark on the music world with their 2000 debut Since I Left You, taking the art of sampling to rarefied heights and storming the airwaves with unexpected earworms like Frontier Psychiatrist. They followed up this success with masterpieces including Wildflower (2016) and We Will Always Love You (2020).

Nicholas has worked with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Chris Botti, Amanda Palmer, Ben Folds and Australian pop sensation Tina Arena. He has written arrangements for Birds of Tokyo, Missy Higgins, Eskimo Joe and Vera Blue.

As part of another Illuminate Adelaide event, Robbie Chater and Tony Di Blasi will collaborate with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and conductor Nicholas Buc to bring their seminal album, Since I Left You to life.
