Crashing through fences
Experience urban life through acoustic and electronic sound.
Crashing Through Fences brings together the hustle, interaction and moments of calm of urban life through acoustic and electronic sound. Steve Reich’s Vermont Counterpoint builds up and winds down in a jagged and undulating way. Robert Davidson’s new work, City Portraits, orchestrates text on urbanization for speaking pianist.
Timo Andres work is an interplay between glockenspiel and piccolo; the two instruments interact hesitantly at first, then with increasing boldness. At opportune moments, they savagely kick each other.
Griswold’s In Patterns of Shade sets an image of shadows dancing on surfaces, such as one might observe on a windy day in the late afternoon, the shadows of one swaying branch intermingling with the architecture or the shifting clouds, to create a shimmering visual effect.
Featured non-Australian music: Steve Reich; Timo Andres
