Nowadays with all the glitz and glamour and general performance kerfuffles, it can be darn hard to actually appreciate the music and talent that you actually intended to absorb. Melbourne filmmaker Jasmin Tarasin has taken this into account with her new video study ‘Live’, an intimate video installation capturing the art of performing. By denying musicians stage, lights and band, Tarasin was able to catch the often overlooked intricate physical gestures of performers as they rock out. The remarkable lineup includes raw performances by the likes of Peaches, Sarah Blasko, Peaches, Feist, Clare Bowditch, and ex-Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker (pictured). The videos are simple, unrefined and direct, and available for your viewing from January 13th as part of the Sydney Festival 2011.

‘Live’ takes place at Lower Town Hall, 483 George Street, Sydney, from January 13th to 23rd. Tickets cost $15 (or $45 for opening night). For more information visit
