'Song Exploder is probably the best use of the podcast format ever' - Vulture

Ever wondered how music is made? How about the personal stories that lie beneath our favourite lyrics and melodies? Taking apart popular songs piece-by-piece from the moment of inspiration to their finishing touches, Song Exploder has become the quintessential guide to making music – revealing the creative secrets of indie heroes such as Björk, The National, Chet Faker and more.

Taking up residence at Vivid LIVE for his first time in Australia, founder and host Hrishikesh Hirway will present Song Exploder live from the Sydney Opera House. Stepping inside the mind of your favourite artist, Song Exploder has revealed why Courtney Barnett's 'Depreston' doesn't have a chorus, whether The Edge uses Garageband, and how the theme song for Game of Thrones was inspired by its characters.

A composer and bedroom producer himself, Hrishikesh Hirway unlocks the mysteries of songwriting for listeners and fellow musicians alike, bringing his rare gift for storytelling to the live stage with special episodes made at Vivid LIVE.
