Event Details

Taking the title and spirit of Rebecca Solnit’s 1998 book, Brisbane composer Liam Flenady’s new concert-length work is written specifically to showcase the impressive talents of Castlemaine multi-instrumentalist and composer Matthew Horsley. Ideas of cultural identity, division and alienation are drawn from Solnit’s tracing of the Irish diaspora into a metaphoric meditation. Flenady fashions a striking premiere that incorporates text from the mediaeval Irish epic poem Buile Shuibhne with uilleann pipes and electronics. A Book of Migrations represents the BIFEM début for both composer and performer and will be performed twice at 2017 BIFEM.
