Blues N' Roots Festival
The Blues N' Roots Music Festival is an annual event held in Perth which attracted around 30,000 people in 2007 and featured musicians such as Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals, Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Missy Higgins, Wolfmother, John Butler Trio and many more international, national and local artists who performed over the weekend-long event.
"Treble Clef" was commissioned by Sunset Events in 2007 for the Blues N' Roots Festival, who believe in supporting the local arts community by incorporating arts projects into the festival.
The artwork is a 3D sculpture of a treble clef – a well-known musical symbol. The word ‘treble’ means threefold; ‘clef’ means a mark (to show pitch). The sculpture in the form of a treble clef represents the past, present and future – bringing music and people together from all walks of life (past and present), with the hope of continuing this tradition in the future. The sculpture was made from rolled steel and stood 2.5m high.
Sunset Events currently own the sculpture which is used as a large centre piece in the 'chill-out area' of the festivals for several years in Perth and other locations around Australia.
