Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Phonetic Orchestra
An audio-visual journey through spaces physical, digital and imagined.
About the artists
Working between Australia and Germany, Phonetic Orchestra brings together an international cast of musicians from the worlds of Contemporary Classical music, Multidisciplinary collaboration and Experimental improvisation to create work that embraces site-specificity, extreme durational performances, and the porous boundaries between notation, time, space, and sound.
About the concert
Following on from the APRA Art Music award-winning 24hr concert Silent Towns, Phonetic Orchestra revisit their singular approach to collective sound with their latest collaborative telematic performance work, Tower Lake Temple.
With the help of cutting-edge technology, the performance will feature real-time interaction between Phonetic Orchestra musicians in both Melbourne and Berlin, re-uniting an ensemble separated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Their performance will redefine the possibilities of collective music-making, taking the audience on an audio-visual journey through spaces physical, digital and imagined.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
