Event Details

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Decibel New Music Ensemble. Revolution is a concert dedicated to the vinyl record – as a sound source, musical instrument and score. Decibel’s performance in Primrose Potter Salon features works which engage both turntable and vinyl records as sources of musical material in a chamber music setting. It goes beyond the turntable as a machine, and the vinyl record as a container for a complete, recorded piece of music. Since the invention of the gramophone in the late nineteenth century, composers have experimented with using the player and records in their music as instruments, scores and sound materials. This program presents a range of historic and recent works including pieces by Milan Knížák, John Cage, Cat Hope, Lindsay Vickey, Annika Moses, Chris De Groot and The Velvet Underground.
