Tura New Music

Fluorophone by Speak Percussion

Tickets available at Perth Theatre Trust

A program of works that explore light sources as musical instruments.

Fluorophone creates a kaleidoscopic sound world in which the central instruments radiate, flicker, glow and burn. Analogue and digital fluorescent lights, the naked flame, strobe lights and custom-built LED discs are combined with percussion to create a program in which the music and lighting design are one and the same. Fluorophone moves between noise, theatrical music and virtuosic instrumentalism, in a synesthetic display of light and sound. Featuring specially commissioned works by a prominent team of leading composers.


Juliana Hodkinson (DEN/UK) – Lightness
Simon Løffler (DEN) – b & e
Damien Ricketson (AUS) – Rendition Clinic
Eugene Ughetti (AUS) – Pyrite Gland
