In Depth #2: On Audiovisual Performance and Composition

Monday the 16th of January, 7pm to 8:30pm

Brigid Burke

A performance of TRANSIT Plus by Brigid Burke followed by a discussion of contemporary audiovisual performance and composition.

TRANSIT Plus is series of performance works that consists of Instinct and Episodes, Green Skies….Moments and TRANSIT for Bb/Bass clarinet, electronics and live video. These compositions reference the environment, architecture of the surrounding areas, sonic and visual improvisation/composition with the creation of multi-layered juxtapositions. These three compositions create linkages between location, audience, artist, and cultural/conceptual space. They explore the roles of visual and sonic representation, communicating with the audience in creating a shared surreal/hyperrealism space with tangible moments.

IN DEPTH #3: On Commissioning, Collaboration, and Solo Performance

Tuesday the 17th of January, 7pm-8:30pm.

Phoebe Green (viola), Ben Opie (oboe), Hannah Reardon-Smith (flute)

A discussion on commissioning new works, collaborating with composers and performers, and solo performance repertoire by some of Australia's top instrumentalists.

Ren Walters/Clinton Green/Michael McNab "At the Salt Museum" CD/digital - In December 2015, these three Melbourne musicians camped at Murray Sunset National Park in northern Victoria, Australia, sounding various sites and performing ritualistic actions. This album documents our interactions with rusted salt harvesting machinery discovered at the outdoor 'salt museum' on the shore of the Lake Crosbie saltpan.
 
 
 
Two tracks available for free streaming. Download the complete 5 track album for $7. Limited edition CD in four panel digipak coming in February, pre-order now for special price of $10+postage (includes full album download) -  https://shamefilemusic.bandcamp.com/album/at-the-salt-museum
 
Splinter Orchestra "Mungo" 3CD - In March 2016 a 21-piece Splinter Orchestra (featuring the likes of Jim Denley, Laura Altman and Peter Farrar) drove from their native Sydney to Adelaide, to perform as part of the Tectonics Festival. Midway they spent 3 days recording in the vast desert recording studio that is Mungo National Park. The new 3 CD set, ‘MUNGO’, their first release in 10 years, presents an argument for a creative collective, sensitive to time/space — one that treats all the participants, be they performers, other species, or the wind, as equal players.
