Event Details

Playing in Tongues brings together some of the finest Australian artistic talent for an inquisitively original evening of new music inspired by words. Featuring chronology’s resident five-piece ensemble with additional guest players, and special guest vocalist Jane Sheldon, the concert will feature new works by composers Peter McNamara, Ruth McCall, Alex Hay, Mathew Schlomowitz, Mark Oliveiro, and video artist Scott Morrison.
The first chronology concert to feature mostly vocal works, Playing in Tongues presents abstract and curious interpretations of everyday words, presented through audio and visual mediums. The concert also holds special significance marking the two-year anniversary of chronology arts.

Featured non-Australian music: Hay
