Event Details

Bridges Collective's 2014 Encounters project is a cultural exchange that brings together composers and musicians from Australia, Malaysia and Indonesia to collaborate on, produce and perform music which crosses traditional cultural and genre boundaries. The concert series will showcase commissioned works by internationally regarded composers with a strong multicultural ethos, including Australian composers Julian Yu, Tim McKenry, and Indonesian composers Krisna Setiawan and Slamet Sjukur.

With their interactive format, Bridges’ concerts aim to give audiences a nuanced and insightful glimpse into the musical and cultural landscapes of the three countries and it is hoped that listeners will leave with a greater appreciation and understanding of musical idioms that are not their own. Concerts will also feature the winning composition from the Bridges Discovery Composition Award.

Featured non-Australian music: Malaysian: Winner of Bridges Discovery Composition Award (Intercultural work) Indonesian: Slamet Sjukur: Semut Ireng (soprano/flute/piano/cello) *World Premiere (ancient Javanese poetry meets avant-garde music) Krisna Setiawan: Ag
