Alana Blackburn | Peter Farrar
Alana Blackburn (recorders) presents In varietate Concordia – unity through diversity, explores the tonal capabilities of the recorder, an instrument often overlooked, yet has stood the test of time. Alana performs a showcase of every aspect of the recorder, including a display of varying sizes and styles from the tiny sopranino to the large, square subcontra bass. Through compositions using fixed media, and live sampling and processing, Alana will perform Australian premieres together with a newly developed improvised performance with sound technologist Ben Carey.
Peter Farrar (saxophone): For a number of years Peter has been working on various extended techniques for the saxophone that effect the overtone series, tuning and timbre/resonance of the instrument. This performance is an exploration into some unique sound worlds created by these innovations. Peter has been involved with free improvisation for ten years and has played with an interesting variety of musicians. These solo saxophone endeavours are about developing a language natural to the instrument that is not bound by stylistic or aesthetic inhibitions that one encounters in group-improvisational contexts.
