Thoroughbass | Remote Places
1 October 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm AEST$10 – $35
Australia is a big place. Our landscapes and skies are vast, our rivers and lakes come and go. This concert presents music that tells the stories that relate to remote places. They are personal, interpretations of the natural environment told in music.
Ann Carr-Boyd imagines the creatures that inhabit Lake Argyle in the Kimberleys, one of the most massive bodies of water in the world in Moonrise over Lake Argyle; she sees the Darling River (Baarka) flooding and feels the resurgence of life within the river in Outback River.
Diana Blom dances a tango in the mining town of Broken Hill in The Royal Exchange.
Aspasia Nasopoulou calls upon her Greek heritage to re-imagine the tale of Io, one of the moons of Jupiter.
Ross Edwards’ love of the natural environment is reflected in A Flight of Sunbirds, for Michael Hannan, it is the birdcalls of Bellingen in Birds calling on Waterfall Way.
See Australia through the eyes, ears and imagination of some of our most revered composers.
