Music for Our Changing Climate

Metropolis

Details

An immersive performance experience designed and performed by the Ad Lib Collective that asks the listener to consider what climate change sounds and feels like.

Recently workshopped on a residency at the Banff Centre in Canada, the program features a collaboration with the Penny Quartet in a brand new work for soprano, strings and percussion and is framed by an ice installation that permeates the performance.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
