Sounds like Signal Image

Young people throughout Southbank and the City of Melbourne had a unique opportunity during the school holidays, with Signal putting on an innovative program, giving a group of youngsters great insight into the life of being a professional musician.

The program, Pika Pika Picnic, introduced electronic bands Baaddd and Toxic Lipstick to break down perceptions of what it is really like to be living and working as an artist.

Emily from Baadddsaid the shows can be various sizes and not just the stadium shows you see on television.

“We do a lot of shows. Sometimes there might be five people or 300 people, but it’s always really fun.”

Kake, who is in both bands, told of the different way bands can rise to prominence these days. She said Toxic Lipstick had made their way through the help of social networking site Myspace.

“We just did it (the band) on our home computers as a silly joke – and it’s taken us all over the world,” Kake exclaimed.

The three-day course combined sound, digital and visual artworks. For more information of Signal programs visit their website www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/signal
