The Edge

All throughout 2010 4ZzZ and The Edge will host a series of workshops on digital media and performance for young media makers, musicians and designers. We’ll also be hosting workshops along side some Brisbane music industry stalwarts in April and May. These workshops will be aimed at females, young musicians and technicians who are interested in learning some practical things ranging from how to get gigs, self promotion, touring tips to basic mike techniques and gear knowledge with question time at the end. Two of these workshops will be topped off by live performances by some of Brisbane’s established and up-and-coming bands, so stay tuned!

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate.

When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vanger’s are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Millennium is based on the trilogy of books by Stieg Larsson and has sold over 8 million copies worldwide. Tragically, Larsson did not live to see the phenomenon his work has become as he died suddenly in 2004 soon after delivering the manuscripts to his Swedish publisher.
