Event Details

Wreckage is an exciting and significant collaboration between Australian composers Oren Ambarchi [Sunn 0))), Jim O'Rourke, John Zorn] and James Rushford [Golden Fur, Jon Rose String Quartet, Francis Plagne].  This exceptional work was premiered in September 2011 at Oslo's Ultima Contemporary Music Festival, and will now be given its Australian premiere.  Cycling through a set of asymmetrical harmonic and rhythmic patterns, the composition is a study in displacement.  The material, though repetitive, shifts itself in unpredictable ways to create an amorphous, and extremely delicate, sonic world.  Wreckage draws upon both avant-garde and avant-pop sensibilities, loosely influenced by the work of Alvin Lucier, Luciano Cilio and Roberto Cacciapaglia.  This is a reflection of both composers' engagement with rock, experimental, and improvised musics.

Featured non-Australian music: Alvin Lucier - Still Lives
