Event Details

Their performance in Primrose Potter Salon takes listeners beyond musical instruments to a sound world where any physical object in existence can be musicalised. Filament is a showcase of artistic compositional voices in Post Instrumental Practice, a boundary-breaking field of contemporary percussion music.

In a program of Australian and world premieres, Speak Percussion present works by Cathy Van Eck, Josephine Macken, Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri and Andreas E. Frank. Focusing on electronics, bespoke instruments and simple everyday objects – a plant, a hairdryer, a quartet of windshield wiper motors.

An enthralling event that pushes the bounds of musical philosophies and unexpected sound worlds.
