Summary Fenella Kernebone presents a music special. Chris McAuliffe gives us his take on visual artists becoming rock stars, jazz star Maddy Hay performs in the studio and Namila Benson encounters 'The RAAH Project'.This week, Art Nation is devoted entirely to music of all kinds.Art Nation's host, Fenella Kernebone heads to northern NSW for an annual event where six opera singers, a pianist, 14 orchestral players and a conductor will gather in a paddock to perform Mozart, Verdi and Puccini. An outside performance is often a difficult one for performers who are used to state of the art concert halls but each year the musicians at this unusual event are asked to overcome the odds. Visual art commentator Chris McAuliffe looks at a current phenomenon involving successful visual artists making a cross-over into music. This is not without precedent, there has been a long history of artists becoming rock stars. Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, David Byrne and even Yoko Ono all started as artists. Art Nation looks at the path from art to music which can be a treacherous one, and features successful Australian artists such as Darren Sylvester, Arlene Texta Queen and Eddie Current.Melbourne-based Tamil Rogoen and Ryan Ritchie regularly perform with their successful hip hop outfit, True Live. However they've got more than one string to their bow. Namila Benson joins the boys on their latest venture The RAAH Project as they enter the concert hall, blending the sounds of jazz, classical, hip hop and soul.Also profiled is Jens Lekman, a renowned songwriter and lyricist. A household name in Sweden, Lekman now lives in Melbourne and is a darling of the indie pop music scene. To close the show, sensational young jazz singer Maddy Hay performs in the Art Nation studio. Hay's ethereal, smoky voice tells the stories of life's great hardships, of loves lost and gained
