Explore the past, present and future of music and the techniques and ideas that shape it in a series of illustrated talks presented by experts and musicians performing live.

Interactive and insightful, Melbourne Recital Centre’s Musical Explorations series is designed to spark a conversation. In this exploration of sound and space, we have invited Cameron Hough, Senior Acoustic and Theatre Consultant with Arup, to guide us through the science of sound.

Find out how acoustic engineers design spaces for performing and listening to music, from the people who designed our marvellous Salon and Elisabeth Murdoch Hall. Renowned violinist, Curt Thompson, Head of Strings at the MCM, The University of Melbourne will supervise a string quartet to offer practical music and commentary during the session.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre in association with Music, Mind and Wellbeing initiative at the University of Melbourne.
