Event Details

Explore the world of one of Australia’s most inventive and industrious composers.

Expect the unexpected as you immerse in a sonic world, exploring more than half a century of compositions by Helen Gifford, one of Australia’s most inventive and industrious composers.

Celebrated as a modernist with an experimentalist streak, Gifford creates unique and sensual soundscapes that evoke great beauty and emotional intensity. Grounded in the cultural optimism of the 1960s, Gifford’s work is alternately haunting and compelling, spiky and urgent.

Presented by the Melbourne Recital Centre and Australian National Academy of Music.
