What Washes UP is a progressive exhibition, a musical and social experiment. Featuring: You? and Christo Warner, the gesticulating street poet from Byron Bay. Whom having emerged is aroused by the potential of the Melbourne region, and compelled to immerse.
"Being myself fresh to the region, maybe nobody will turn up?" So far Elena, a tango singer has been met and is keen. And now David a guitarist, has offered his mic and amp! It is progressing, yet the concept is deliberately full of unknowns, and invites musicians beyond genres. Seeking an experimental fusion, not perfection but collaborative art. The aim is to document the process and put it out on the net, with links to collaborators to enable further symbiosis. So we will see, What Washes UP.
