Event Details

In 2017, a renaissance flute was recovered from a shipwreck in the Markermeer, North Holland. The instrument’s journey unfolds in Tactus, a new audio-visual work by Tura’s Summers Night alumni Kate Milligan, Olivia Davies and WA flautist Jonty Coy. In a meeting of experimental music-making and historically informed performance, this intimate work explores the materiality of cultural heritage as it is transformed by time and water. Produced by Tura and commissioned by the APRA AMCOS Art Music Fund, Tactus traverses time and place to submerge audiences in an antique, experimental, sunken sound-world seldom heard in Australia.
