Event Details

As part of the Darmstadt 49th International Summer Course for New Music, Rubiks perform an Open Space program of new Australian chamber works, showcasing four of the most exciting young voices in Australian music. This concert will include the world premiere of 'Want Not' by Samantha Wolf, who will be in attendance as a participant in the Darmstädter Ferienkurse Composition Studio.

JULY 23rd, 2pm, OS Showcase 

Samantha Wolf - Want Not (2018) *
Influenced by environmentalism, minimalism, and extreme frugality, 'Want Not' explores the sonic potential of discarded objects, breathing new life into everyday items that would otherwise become landfill.

Jacob Abela - Fixations (2018) *
'Fixations' is comprised of a series of sound states organised in a way which encourages both inward and outward listening. The artefacts arising from this process are incorporated in to the larger form of the piece, and counterpoint emerges.

Holly Harrison - Lobster Tales and Turtle Soup (2017) **
Drawing inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s beloved nonsensical book 'Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland', 'Lobster Tales and Turtle Soup' features playful juxtapositions between text and music, frenetically illustrating characters and narratives through changes of style, tempo, time signatures, and warping phrases.

Samuel Smith - Species (2018) *
'Species' gathers together a collection of grief-soaked sonic artefacts that are assembled to create an austere and fragile ecology. Reflecting on species loss and the experience of grief, 'Species' finds an analogue to the uncanny experience of a changed environment in the denaturing and degrading of familiar sounds.
