Music in a time of extinction

4 September 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm AEST


Vanessa Tomlinson and Music in a time of Extinction

Vanessa has recently been performing music concentrating our minds on the 6th great extinction taking place on our planet. She says “Imagine the sound of the Lesser stick-nest rat inside its nest” or “Imagine the sound of Zaglossus hacketti’s spines rubbing against a tree”. Her program tonight is called Music of The Imagination and includes works for table and paper and the legendary UR sonata of Dadaist Kurt Schwitters. She will be driving to Sydney from Brisbane with her enormous and favourite Tam-Tam (Gong) A universe of Sound – especially for our benefit. Don’t mis it!

After the music, Vanessa will be heard in conversation with Stephen Adams of ABC radio. The evenings will be recorded, becoming a New Waves podcast on the ABC website.

Evenings@ Peggy’s begin promptly at 7pm (doors open at 6.30, so plan to arrive early for a chat and a drink) and finish by 9pm. These are FREE events, but seating is limited to 40 punters, and they require early e-mail booking registration or you can take a chance and show up at the door with a bottle of wine.
