Work Overview

"Pandora's box is an exquisite small hurdy gurdy made by Bryan Poynton from recycled wood from the Melbourne Town Hall organ. Opening and shutting the lid manually in performance is a powerful metaphor for being responsible for our actions in controlling uncertain futures. Sounds of aeolian harps, underwater cymbals, plucked tarhu, the hurdy gurdy, water jar and recorder jump out of the box. This collaborative work was re-developed into a quadrophonic sound-installation, for the outdoor Reflecting on water, 2010, and the indoor Quiet Music festival. First performed Qdos Gallery, Lorne, Sounds of Wood" -- Ros Bandt.
