Tura New Music

A wave and waves

Tickets on sale at Eventbrite

A work for 100 percussionists by seminal Wandelweiser composer Michael Pisaro.

Performed in the iconic Midland Railway Workshops.

In this rare, deep listening experience the audience sits among the performers to experience the music as if part of an ocean of sound. Colossal percussive waves are created by layers of imperceptibly soft sounds— sandpaper on stone, seeds falling on glass, bowed bells—forming a textural landscape bristling with detail.

A wave and waves is a work of monumental scale, experienced with intimate immediacy—as countless tiny moments of friction, gravity and vibration heave into life like a single, pulsing organism. 

This will be the WA premiere of the work.

Two performances:
1pm, Sunday 29 Oct
4pm, Sunday 29 Oct

Part of the 13th Totally Huge New Music Festival.

Supported by the City of Swan.
