Event description

Description

Surprise! Before heading back to NYC, Emmy award-winning composer and musical director, Lance Horne, will join singer/songwriter Nathan Mahon for tonight’s sold out show: Who Stole It Best? at Late Night Library. Hosted by composer and songwriter Tim Hansen, we’ll also be inviting industry experts to draw the line between ‘borrowing’ music and stealing.

Late Night Library: Who Stole it Best?

Some of the best-known pop and rock musicians have been accused of ‘borrowing’ music that made theirs a hit. Even icons like George Harrison, John Lennon and Rod Steward have fallen into legal scrutiny. But what is the line between stealing and inspiration? A common and controversial practice throughout history that has most recently been popularised through sampling and mash-ups, the topic continues to intrigue music makers and listeners.

Join us as we transform Customs House Library into a piano bar for one-night-only. We’ll be exploring some new and familiar compositions that borrow music and words as creative inspiration.

This event is part of Late Night Library’s winter season of unique musical encounters. Talented musicians, composers and artists explore ideas around culture, health and literature through music.

Presented by Musica Viva and City of Sydney Library.
