Event Details

Machine for Contacting the Dead (2000) VP
Liza Lim

To celebrate Liza Lim’s 50th birthday and as part of their 30-year anniversary, ELISION teams up once again with students from the Australian National Academy of Music to present Machine for contacting the dead for 27 musicians. Inspired by Chinese archaeological treasures excavated from the 433 BCE tomb of the Marquis Yi of Zheng, Machine for contacting the dead is a seminal work by an Australian composer of unparalleled international reach and gravitas. Originally commissioned by the Ensemble Intercontemporain and premiered in Paris in 2000, the well-overdue Victorian début of this piece will be exclusive to 2016 BIFEM.

Further information for this event is available online at the event's website or by phone on (03) 5434 6100 or by email to info@bifem.com.au
