Latitude 37 - The Things That Bind Us

Details

Music past and present, near and far

Latitude 37 present a program of new music from near and far, including such far flung countries as Iceland, the United Kingdom and the United States, and then those countries closer to home, New Zealand and Australia.

The program focuses on the passage of music and time, and that which makes all human beings essentially the same. The heart beat which brings all music to life can be seen in the recurrent musical techniques of the past and present, such as ostinato bass-lines, or rhythmic patterns, all woven together with a pendulum-like sense of beat.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
