ensemble fabrique presents ribbons of rust a concert incorporating the whirring, spinning, sighing and clanking of reel to reel tape machines, found objects, several broken skylark violins, acoustic instruments and ¼ inch magnetic tape. Four Brisbane composers create new works for an ensemble of flute, violin, cello, piano and percussion. The pairing of four tape installations result in a concert of composed and semi-improvised work through a live interactive electronic tape component. Reel to reel machines weave tape loops around the ensemble, piano, the support structure of the building and the whole performance space with each installation whirring to life during the performance. A Q&A style seminar will occur before the concert with the composers and performers to explain the collaborative composition and rehearsal process. The space is also open to the public 1 hour prior to the performance for viewing of each tape installation.
Installations open to public at 6pm
Performers: Latham Horn (flute), Natalie Little (violin), Braxton Neate (cello), Stephanie Linsdell (piano), Cameron Kennedy (percussion), Timothy Tate (electronics)
