West Head Project: Recursive Space
Jim Denley is joined by Rosalind Hall (saxophone) at this year’s West Head Project. Both musicians are instrumental innovators – the saxophone is redefined in their work. Their aim in these concerts is to find music that resonates with two redefined spaces.
In Melbourne, the Norla Dome – a large circular dome shaped space situated within the historical Mission To Seafarers building captures light and sound uniquely. The original exposed brick forms the surrounding walls while the towering concrete dome creates a ceiling with great impact.
In Sydney, the Paddington Reservoir – in 2006 architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer and landscape architects JMD Design began work to conserve, restore and reuse the derelict space. The facility reopened in 2008 as a sunken garden with rooftop reserve above the preserved Eastern chamber. The facility incorporates the original brick, timber and iron structure with modern sculptural elements, which provide access to the sunken garden via stairs and an elevator.
