Well, one thing that I hate about this pandemic is the opportunity to watch a concert, gigs, or anything my favorite musician does live. But now, like everybody else, I must adapt, and watching virtual concerts has become an option which is not bad, but actually fun too! One of my best virtual concerts that I ever watch is Tame Impala Innerspeaker 10th Anniversary (Live From Wave House) which was held on April 21st, 2021, when they performed the album from start to finish.
Before watching I assumed that it will be a recorded video, but I was super wrong, Kevin play all of song from his debut album Innerspeaker live, and it is just not heaven from my ear but my eyes too because they played it at Wave House, a place where Kevin made this debut album.
Like I said before, watching this virtual concert is like heaven for me. First, the visual. Playing at Wave House itself was really beautiful, like watching some esthetic film or music video, and not some virtual concert which played live!
And I think Kevin was really smart to play his concert before sunset, so as fans we can see how different Wave House is from sun still up, sun set, and then when at night. (It’s really cool bro!)
Also don’t forget about many types of lens (which I didn’t know) that used in this virtual concert. This element was a plus and made Innerspeaker 10th Anniversary live concert more artistic and beautiful.
FYI, for you who don’t know what is Wave House, according to abc.net.au Wave House is the multi-storey West Australian property – known as Wave House – is located in Yallingup, and is situated on a 50-acre plot overlooking Injidup Beach, with uninterrupted views stretching across the Indian Ocean coastline and the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.
Originally built in the 1980s by American producer Ken Eichenberg, Wave House has also been used by the Beastie Boys, Fatboy Slim, The Waifs, and Fat Freddy’s Drop as a studio retreat. The property also features a limestone amphitheatre that can host up to 300 people.
And you know that in 2020 Kevin and his wife buy this property for $2.75 million. For Kevin, Wave House has so much memory. In 2009, Parker spent the winter there recording Tame Impala’s debut album InnerSpeaker.
The sound, God miss the old Tame Impala! (not complaining, just stating my opinion)
This is I think the most loveable, and amazed me when talking about Tame Impala (and of course Kevin). The instrument and Kevin’s voice are so freaking good that it made me think it is not a virtual concert but just like being in a live concert.
Even though this concert has a minimal talking audience session, I think it’s okay and actually we just want to enjoy music without blabbering talk.
That’s my honest opinion about Tame Impala Innerspeaker 10th Anniversary (Live From Wave House), like another music enthusiasm. I hope this Covid-19 pandemic will slow down, and we can watch a live concert again.
