Event Details

In 'They Swim Through Air', Rubiks showcase the exuberance, imagination and artistry of new music creators from Australia and beyond with a program that reflects on the rituals and processes of life.

Inspired by Tolkien’s use of the term ‘sky-fields’ in Lord of the Rings, Gemma Peacocke reflects on the travels of the sun and the power of hope, while Leah Blankendaal’s Beacon explores how memories are retained within the body over a lifetime. Natalie William's 'Singing Stones', her prize-winning entry in the Iron Composer contest, draws inspiration from surprising secret musical ingredients. The program finishes with the premiere of ‘Sound Fields’, a new commission from Felicity Wilcox (2021 Pythia Prize).

Wilcox’s vivid new work offers sonic interpretations of the lush and emotive imagery by New York expressionist painter, Helen Frankenthaler.

Featured non-Australian music: Gemma Peacocke - Sky Fields
