TIM RITCHIE IN CONVERSATION
Tue. 13 September 2016, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm AEST
FREE ENTRY To coincide with a month long photographic exhbition of his work for Sydney Fringe Festival, Groovescooter, Keep Sydney Open + APRA AMCOS present TIM RITCHIE IN CONVERSATION at Play Bar in Surry Hills on Tuesday 13 September at 7pm.
Tim Ritchie is something of a local legend. From his gatecrashing radio career debut on Sydney's Double J back in 1976 (he rang the breakfast announcer to complain, was challenged to come in and "do a better job" and then proceeded to do so for many years) through to his much loved Radio National program Sound Quality and beyond, Tim has been an ardent supporter of Australian music and independent artists. He was also one of the early champions of dance and electronic music in this country, both on-air and in clubs.
You're invited to come along and hear Tim chatting at length to fellow radio presenter Paris Pompor and also ask Tim your own questions. Tim will be talking about his radio career, inspirations, the many musicians he has met and interviewed over the years, and his years as a club DJ when Sydney was arguably a more vibrant 24-hour party city. These day's Tim is still found on the streets of Sydney pre-dawn often witnessing the sunrise, but unlike the '80s when he was stumbling out of now-defunct clubs after nightly DJ sets, Tim has a fresh passion in photography, and the results are stunning. Uploaded daily, his early morning photos of Sydney have become an unmissable feature on an ever-growing number of people's social media feeds. Abstract or simply beautifully, Tim will also discuss this latest creative outlet, his first exhibition and how Sydney has changed visually and socially over the last four decades.
A recent portrait of Tim done for for the 2016 Archibald Prize by Sydney artist Adrian Elmer, will also be on display at this event. RSVP using the REGISTER button to be in the audience.
