Curtin Gallery's of art and music celebrates the influences that visual art and music can have on each other.
Video installation Paris Requiem by artist Adam Geczy and composer Peter Sculthorpe (2006) is a compelling video installation that Geczy has referred to as their 'most technically and conceptually ambitious' collaboration to date. Although one work, it comprises six discrete video 'meditations' that correspond to the six movements of Sculthorpe's Requiem for Solo Cello.
Roger Smalley, internationally renowned composer, has always been attracted to the work of Brian Blanchflower. In 1990, he decided to compose a piece of music based on Blanchflower's work. The result was Diptych composed in response to the darkness of Blanchflower's sculptural installation, Tursiops and the brightness of the colour and texture in the painting, Glimpses (An Earth History) both created in the 1980's. Smalley created a pair of orchestral pieces that represent dark and light.
