- Venue: Music Workshop, Sydney Conservatorium of Music — Cnr Macquarie St and Bridge St, Sydney, NSW Tickets: This is a free event
The program features the combined talents of student and professional musicians performing four new works by four Sydney Conservatorium honours composers:
Joe Manton – Four Dimensional Fluctuation - Category 5
You’re taken on a short journey through futuristic and magical scenery, your sense of time being perturbed throughout. Your imagination needs only to jump on board for a few minutes. Or perhaps you’re being used scientifically as a subject in an experiment that you agreed to before being ‘born’… Either way; enjoy the ride.
Owen Salome – Anemone
I woke up to find you there, eyes alight with curiosity. Did it work? Did we share a dream? You wanted to know but I was afraid to tell you. Text by Ella Salome.
Helena Czajka – 3 Days of Orange Rain
Inspired by the dust storm that engulfed Sydney for 3 days in Sept 2009; the piece explores the mixture of beauty and eeriness that the storm brought, serving as a reminder of those 3 days when the city paused, enveloped in orange.
Daniel Manera – L’ Operetta (an operetta for the contemporary program)
3 singing wanna-be kidnappers draw the audience into a gritty world of botched crime and ridiculous antics as they try to ransom off their debut victim to cover gambling losses. This program contains explicit language.
