Event Details

Catherine’s large-scale graphic scores are both visual works of art and musically fascinating. As a visual artist and composer/performer Catherine Schieve has been investigating the deep congruence of sonic and visual expression for over 25 years. This program will feature a series of four seminal works Catherine created in the 1980s. The works are also large visual arts works created on canvas and were designed to be 'read' and performed by musicians trained in specific ways (redefining the act of translating visual gestures to sound), often on homemade or adapted percussion instruments. The performance environment will be set-up as an open installation environment where the percussionists traverse the space in front of Catherine’s strategically placed 'graphic' scores. The audience will be free to move, listen and view the works at their discretion.

This performance is supported by the City of Melbourne and the Frankston Arts Centre.
