Abstract

Brian Ritchie will talk about what it was like growing up in Milwaukee, being one of the pioneers of punk, traveling the world in a weird rock band, playing music at the North Pole and Macchu Picchu, smoking cigars, moving to Tasmania, working at both the most radical and most traditional of museums and why mixing music and art is not as simple as it seems. Curator of MONA FOMA (Museum of Old and New Art Festival of Music and Art) in Hobart, Tasmania. Brian Ritchie is founding bassist/multi-instrumentalist of the seminal American alternative group Violent Femmes. He moved to Australia in 2006 and formed “The Break” modern Australian surf band with three members of Midnight Oil. Brian is also a licensed master of shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute). Extra-musically he operates an Asian teahouse Chado-the Way of Tea.
