Vivid Sydney Reveals Groundbreaking Tekno Train Experience by Paul Mac

Train travel will never be the same again: in an Australian first, Vivid Sydney just announced Tekno Train by Paul Mac, a one-of-a-kind event that will transform a Sydney Trains service into a moving, sensory sound and light experience for 23 nights only.

Exclusive to Vivid Sydney, the Southern Hemisphere’s leading multi-artform festival, and in collaboration with Sydney Trains, Tekno Train by Paul Mac is set to radically reinvent the experience of train travel as a thrilling musical adventure for a limited time only.

Passengers will be treated to an original techno soundtrack composed by Paul Mac, especially for Tekno Train, accompanied by immersive custom lighting that illuminates inside all carriages. As the train moves, the lights and music will rhythmically adjust to match the train’s speed and changing landscape outside, crafting a melodic and unforgettable ride through both Sydney’s city circle and disused train lines.

Ticketholders will take their seats on what appears to be a standard K set train. However, as the train leaves Central Station, the adventure begins. Hidden lights and speakers will create a communal experience with synchronised lights driven by techno music. The project sees Paul Mac continue a musical journey that shares his unique and emotional electronic dance music language in an unexpected setting.

Minister for Jobs and Tourism John Graham said: “Multi-ARIA Award winner Paul Mac composing the tracks on the tracks will lift a routine experience like jumping on a train in the city into a joyous moment and a unique, shared experience.

“Vivid Sydney keeps finding new and unique locations, and programming memorable one-off experiences, Tekno Train raises the bar yet again in 2024.”

Creator and composer Paul Mac, said: “Trains have always fascinated me. Their mix of rhythmic clicks and clacks, the screech of metal on metal, and the sound and smell of brakes are all interesting sensory experiences that everyone can relate to. Tekno Train will take things one step further. It will drive the music and lights, turning a commuter journey into a sensory rollercoaster.”

Embodying Vivid Sydney’s 2024 theme of ‘Humanity’, Tekno Train by Paul Mac celebrates the uniting power of music and community. It leans on a routine experience to create a joyous moment that brings people together. As public transport and mass transit become more vital in a sustainable future, the project will encourage audiences to find moments of joy, togetherness, and wonder in the everyday.

Vivid Sydney Festival Director Gill Minervini said: “This year’s Vivid Sydney is focused on broadening perspectives, challenging preconceptions and celebrating humanity. Tekno Train by Paul Mac is a perfect example of how multiple artforms from the world’s brightest artists can transform everyday activities into something truly memorable. We’re thrilled to be able to work with Transport for NSW and Paul to bring this magical experience to our wonderful city and create unforgettable experiences that will captivate audiences from around the world.”

Tekno Train will offer two different 60-minute routes for festivalgoers to choose from, both departing from Central Station:

  • The Scenic Route: Sit back and take in the sights and sounds of North Sydney as your journey is lit up over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and down a secret spur line to Lavender Bay. This is the slower of the two journeys and better suited to families with children ages five and up.
  • Tech Express: Take it up a notch and go deep beneath the city with a pulsing techno thrill ride through City Circle and South Sydney. This is the more lively, full-bodied journey for those seeking a more fast-paced immersive experience.

Tekno Train by Paul Mac promises to be a highlight of Vivid Sydney. It will run every night of the festival from Friday, 24 May, to Saturday, 15 June. Tickets for the experience start at $13.90 for children (5-12 years) and $19.90 for adults. Family pricing is also available at $59.90.

Tekno Train won’t be the only train on the network making extra trips for Vivid Sydney. Throughout the season, 400 additional rail services, as well as additional bus and light rail options, will run on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Tekno Train by Paul Mac was created and composed by Paul Mac in collaboration with Vivid Sydney and produced by Performing Lines. SimpleMotion designed the Lighting, Jands Pty Ltd designed the audio, and Garry Wotherspoon provided creative consultation, with additional music production and technical assistance by Luke Warren.

The NSW Government supports the project through Destination NSW and Create NSW, the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its primary arts investment and advisory body, and the Wales Family Foundation.

Tickets for Tekno Train by Paul Mac are now on sale here.

Mastering the Art of Modelling: Tips for Success in 2024

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or an aspiring model, staying ahead of the curve is essential for success. Here are some key tips to elevate your modelling career in 2024.

Embrace Diversity and Inclusivity

In the modern modelling industry, diversity and inclusivity are no longer just buzzwords – they are integral components of success. Embrace and celebrate your unique qualities, and advocate for a more inclusive representation in the industry. Diverse models are now more sought after than ever, reflecting the broader spectrum of beauty and style.

Leverage Social Media and Personal Branding

Social media sites are now effective tools for models to present their work, connect with agencies, and build a personal brand. Create a unified, aesthetically pleasing feed that captures your essence and aesthetic. Engage with your audience, collaborate with other creatives, and stay consistent to build a strong online presence.

Stay Technologically Savvy

In 2024, technology plays a pivotal role in the modelling industry. Familiarize yourself with virtual fittings, digital fashion shows, and other emerging trends. Being tech-savvy will not only make you more marketable but also position you as a forward-thinking model ready to adapt to the industry’s evolving landscape.

Invest in Continuous Learning

The modelling industry is always changing, so it’s important to stay current with the newest methods, styles, and innovations. To advance your abilities and broaden your knowledge, attend workshops, enrol in online courses, and attend fashion events. A model who is committed to continuous learning is better equipped to navigate the ever-changing industry.

Prioritize Mental and Physical Well-being

Success in modelling goes beyond appearances. Give your emotional and physical well-being first priority if you want to have a long-lasting and successful job. Develop a healthy lifestyle, practice self-care, and surround yourself with a supportive network. Mental and physical well-being not only contribute to your overall happiness but also enhance your ability to excel in a competitive industry.

Sunscreen Essentials: Unveiling the Secrets to Glowing Summer Skin

As the temperature rises and the sun takes center stage, it’s time to reevaluate your skincare regimen so your skin can stay beautiful and healthy all summer. From sun protection to hydration, here are some crucial considerations for your summer skin care.

Sunscreen Is Your Summer Sidekick

Sunscreen is a non-negotiable element of summer skincare. UV radiation from the sun can raise the risk of skin cancer, sunburn, and premature ageing. Try to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 and liberally apply it to all exposed areas, including the face, neck, and hands. Reapply every two hours, especially if you’re swimming or sweating.

Hydration from the Inside Out

Summer’s heat can lead to dehydration, impacting your skin’s moisture levels. You need to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated throughout the day. Well-hydrated skin is more robust and less prone to irritation and dryness. Consume foods high in water, such as watermelon, cucumbers, and oranges, to support overall hydration.

Lightweight, Breathable Fabrics

Swap out heavy fabrics for lightweight, breathable options in your summer wardrobe. Loose, airy clothing allows your skin to breathe and helps prevent heat rashes and irritation. Cotton and other natural materials are great options because they wick away moisture and keep you cool.

Adjust Your Cleansing Routine

Summer calls for adjustments to your cleansing routine. Breakouts and plugged pores can result from sweating and excessive oil production. Use a gentle, hydrating cleanser to remove sweat, sunscreen, and excess oil without stripping your skin. Consider incorporating exfoliation into your routine to slough off dead skin cells and promote a fresh, radiant complexion.

Say Yes to Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a summer skincare superhero. This hydrating ingredient helps your skin retain moisture, keeping it plump and youthful. Think about using a moisturiser or serum with hyaluronic acid in your regimen to enhance hydration levels and combat the effects of sun exposure.

Protection Beyond Sunscreen

In addition to sunscreen, consider other forms of sun protection, such as wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and protective clothing. These additions provide an additional line of protection from the sun’s rays, especially during peak hours when the sunlight is strongest.

Post-Sun Care

If you’ve spent time outdoors, it’s essential to care for your skin afterward. A soothing, hydrating aftersun lotion can help alleviate sunburn and replenish lost moisture. Avoid products with harsh ingredients that may further irritate sun-exposed skin.

Eye Care Matters

Your eyes’ sensitive skin is especially susceptible to sun damage. Invest in good UV-protective sunglasses to shield your eyes from harmful rays. Consider applying an SPF-containing eye cream to protect and nourish this sensitive area.

Manage Excess Oil

The summer heat can exacerbate oiliness for those with oily or combination skin. Use oil-free and mattifying products to manage excess oil. Blotting papers can also be handy for on-the-go oil control without disturbing your makeup.

Cool Down with Mists

Rosewater and aloe vera, two calming components, can be added to facial mists to create a revitalising and hydrating boost throughout the day. Keep one in your bag for a quick cool-down whenever you need it.

By incorporating these considerations into your summer skincare routine, you can keep your skin healthy, protected, and glowing all season long. Keep in mind that a little extra care goes a long way in preserving its health and radiance under the summer sun.

Unlocking the Runway: The Unseen Secrets Behind Building a Thriving Modelling Career – It’s Way More Than Just a Pretty Face!

Being consistently booked as a model requires more than just a pretty face. It’s about understanding the industry, building a solid brand, and continuously honing your skills. This article reveals the secrets to staying in demand as a model, ensuring you remain at the top of your game and constantly attract lucrative opportunities.

Cultivate a Professional Image

Maintaining a professional image is essential for modeling success. Keep your appearance up to par by practicing good hygiene, staying in shape, and following a healthy lifestyle. Develop a strong personal style that showcases your versatility while remaining true to your unique identity. Remember to present yourself professionally in all interactions with clients, agencies, and fellow professionals, as a positive reputation goes a long way in this industry.

Constantly Update Your Portfolio

Your portfolio is your visual resume and the key to getting booked. Regularly update it with high-quality, diverse images demonstrating your modelling range and adaptability. Collaborate with talented photographers, makeup artists, and stylists to create stunning new shots that reflect the latest trends and demonstrate your ability to adapt to different looks and themes.

Network Effectively

Networking is crucial in the modeling industry. Attend industry events, fashion shows, and photo shoots to connect with industry professionals, including photographers, designers, stylists, and fellow models. Build genuine relationships and maintain a solid online presence on platforms like Instagram and LinkedIn. Engage with industry influencers and showcase your work through social media, which can help you attract attention and increase your chances of getting booked.

Stay Updated on Industry Trends

To remain relevant and marketable, stay abreast of the latest industry trends. Follow fashion magazines, blogs, and social media accounts of influential designers, photographers, and agencies. Understand the evolving demands of the industry and adapt your style accordingly. Stay open to learning and attending workshops or classes to enhance your modeling skills and stay ahead of the competition.

Seek Representation

Having a reputable modeling agency represent you can significantly increase your chances of getting booked. Research and approach agencies that align with your goals and values. A good agency can provide guidance, opportunities, and exposure to clients and casting directors who may not be easily accessible on your own. Ensure you understand the terms of any contract before signing and maintain a strong working relationship with your agency to maximize your modeling potential.

It takes dedication, professionalism, and continuous efforts to improve and evolve to keep getting booked as a model. Cultivate a professional image, update your portfolio regularly, network effectively, stay informed about industry trends, and consider representation from a reputable agency. By following these secrets, you’ll pave the way for a successful and enduring modeling career.

Meet The Rising Star Behind The Cover Of The December 2023 Issue Of Model & Mode Magazine: Lola Swadling

Download Now

Meet Lola Sofia Swadling, an 11-year-old resident from the eastern suburbs of Sydney. As one of two children living at home with both mum and dad, Lola has already distinguished herself as a compassionate and enthusiastic individual with a passion for making a positive impact on the world.

One of Lola’s primary interests lies in environmental sustainability projects, reflecting her deep concern for the planet. Alongside her commitment to saving the Earth, she actively participates in initiatives that promote sustainability. Her dedication to such projects showcases her early awareness and responsibility towards global issues.

Lola’s altruistic nature extends beyond her environmental endeavours. Recognised for her kindness and willingness to assist others, she has been appointed as a junior leader through her church. This role not only emphasizes her leadership qualities but also underlines her commitment to serving her community.

Beyond her philanthropic pursuits, Lola finds joy and self-expression in the arts. Dancing, singing, drawing, and painting are among her favourite activities. Lola has been immersed in the world of dance since the tender age of 2, engaging in jazz, tap, and ballet. Additionally, she started gymnastics at just 18 months old, embracing the movements that provide her with a sense of presence and confidence.

Lola’s love for the planet and its inhabitants is truly commendable. Her beautiful spirit shines through when she interacts with the elderly, reflecting a genuine connection and a desire to make a positive impact on their lives. Through her involvement with the St. Vincent de Paul Society, she extends her compassion to those in need, showcasing a heartwarming blend of empathy and kindness.

In essence, Lola Sofia Swadling is not just an 11-year-old; she is a young advocate for sustainability, a budding artist, and a compassionate soul dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others. Her story is an inspiring testament to the potential for positive change, even at a young age.

Model & Mode magazine recently caught up with Lola to discuss her journey in the industry so far and here’s what went down:

Hi Lola! What’s your absolute favourite thing to do when you’re not in school?

Listening to music while jumping around my room. I also love to spend time with my family during movie nights, snuggling up with my mum, dad, and brother. Oh, I can’t forget my beloved cat, MJ.

You’re super into saving the planet! Can you share what you love most about sustainability projects and how you think kids like you can make a big difference?

In my family, we operate a timber and hardware business. You might wonder how this is beneficial for the environment. Well, for every tree we harvest, we, as kids, plant five more in its place in a sustainability plantation we’ve established up north.

This massive sustainability initiative is a source of pride for my family and me. Our goal is to nurture the growth of trees and contribute to the flourishing of our planet.

Additionally, in my daily life, I’ve always been actively engaged in cleaning up our living area, ensuring proper recycling practices, and placing items in the correct bins when people leave behind mess and rubbish.

Being a junior leader at the church sounds exciting! Can you tell us about one fun experience you’ve had helping others?

Originally, that’s when a child helps at the church, helping others in understanding the word of the Lord. God’s word is very inspiring and fun. The program also involves charitable giving and helping other leaders to ensure everyone is happy learning about God. It’s genuinely fun, and I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to help others.

Dancing, singing, and art – that’s amazing! Which dance move, song, or painting are you most proud of creating?

At school, my afternoons are filled with dancing, which is incredibly enjoyable. Collaborating with fellow students in my year group makes the experience even more fun. We help each other understand the dance moves, and the performance nights are the absolute best!


Recently, my favourite artwork project was creating a paper mâché face mask. I incorporated elements that I truly love, such as a turtle (because I love the ocean), a butterfly (a long-time fascination), and musical notes with tiger stripes (reflecting my love for both music and tigers).

Dancing since you were 2! What’s your favorite dance move, and why do you enjoy dancing so much?

Dancing keeps you active and moving while enjoying awesome music. Immersing yourself in various beats and rhythms allows you to craft unique dance moves.

I particularly enjoy dancing in a group as it enhances collaborative skills and is fun with friends. However, I also have a special fondness for solo dances. One of my favourite solo performances was at nationals when I was 6, where I danced to “Material Girl.” It was a blast, and I had the opportunity to wear pearls, sunglasses, and gloves during the performance. It was an incredibly fun experience.

Can you share a story about a time you felt really good helping someone?

I prepared various foods, such as sandwiches and snacks, for the homeless. Additionally, we organised a sock collection drive for the homeless during the winter.

This initiative had a significant impact as it provided warmth for them and ensured they had dinner for another night.

Furthermore, I have visited numerous nursing homes with both my family and school to engage in conversations, bring laughter, and offer handmade gifts to the residents.

Having a little brother sounds like fun! What’s the coolest thing you’ve taught him or done together?

Spending time with my brother is always fun as we engage in playful activities after school and on weekends. We both share a love for the water, whether it’s at the beach or pool, making it a fantastic and fun experience—especially when our dad joins us. And, of course, lots of hugs make these moments even better.

If you could make your own planet, what would it be like, and what kind of creatures would live there?

If I were to design my own planet, it would be populated by all my favourite animals, surrounded only by kind-hearted people. This planet would prioritise safety, free from diseases, and strictly forbid any harm to the environment. Additionally, all my preferred activities and foods would be available—except for olives!

When you draw or paint, what’s your favorite thing to create? Animals, people, or maybe something out of this world?

Engaging in painting or drawing, I particularly enjoy creating abstract pieces. During a recent sleepover with my BFF, we collaborated on an abstract artwork, making the process incredibly enjoyable, and the result was amazing. We even concealed the name of the artwork within the piece, adding an extra layer of fun.

Additionally, I love drawing nature, including birds, trees, and rainbows.

Looking ahead to when you’re a bit older, what’s one big dream you have for when you grow up?

As I get older, my aspiration is to continue designing and channeling my passion for art. My ultimate dream is to experience lasting happiness with my beloved family by my side.
