A Gallery of short electro-acoustic pieces from Australian composers, reaching back to earlier decades.
NOW AND THEN Festival Details:
A mini-multi-celebration of voices & electronics from past & present - September 1-10
Electro-acoustic music in its varied forms has been a recurring element in Astra concerts for over 30 years. In the context of choral concerts, however, it remains something that arises “now and then” in composers’ work. This series of six events over two weekends focuses more specifically on the medium in both of its traditional practices: the combinations with live performance, and the purely electronically assembled. The six programs present work of “now” from some of Australia’s leading researchers and creators in the field, both onshore and expatriate. Equally, they also seek to re-introduce something of the “then” of earlier decades, in a medium which by now has its own sonic history of a half-century and more.
Guest soloists and instrumentalists:
The Astra Improvising Choir directed by Joan Pollock
The Astra Choir conducted by John McCaughey
Technical direction: Michael Hewes
