Presented by Spirit Level


Braille Face presents his 2020 album, Original Cast Recording live for the first time.

About this concert

A deeply personal record, tackling mental health, medication, sexuality and masculinity, while exploring the various ways in which mental health and creativity intersect and interact — for better or for worse.

Written and produced over a handful of years in studios and spaces across Melbourne, New York, Oslo and Japan, the album is a document of a turbulent but ultimately hopeful period in Braille Face’s ongoing relationship with his own mental health.

‘The album title comes from something my mother told me when I was about 15 years old. I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety and in order to soothe me onto the idea of medication, she said, “if you break your leg, you put it in a cast. This is the same thing.” This narrative stuck and came to help define who I have been for the better part of 15 years – the part my mother left out was the part where you have to eventually take off this cast once it’s healed.’ – Jordan White / Braille Face
