Event Details


Artfully beguiling, subtly chaotic and deliciously zany, the music box project brings you the Sydney premiere of Shallow Listening. Five ‘sonic pillars’ of exploratory works by Moya Henderson, Jasmin Wing-Yin Leung, Jaslyn Robertson, Elizabeth Jigalin and Joseph Franklin are woven together with a performative sinew of sound, motion and play. From the clicking of scissors to slow motion singing, cheeky meditations on red, a panel of toys and the catharsis of an internal dialogue — leave your expectations at the door and join the ensemble for an evening of signature music box madness.

Premiered at the 2019 Bendigo International Festival of Experimental Music (BIFEM), this genre-defying performance received the 2020 APRA AMCOS / AMC Art Music Award for Excellence in Experimental Music.

In the event of COVID restrictions changing, the music box project has planned to present an alternative music experience in place of Shallow Listening. By purchasing a ticket, you are supporting the music box project in making either performance possible. We are closely watching the ever changing situation to let you know of any changes to the performance as soon as possible.

the music box project is Jane Aubourg, Joseph Franklin, Elizabeth Jigalin, Naomi Johnson, Peter Leung, Joseph Lisk and Tina Stefanou.
