Tura New Music

Walkman Antiquarian

Artists in residence at UWA, Intercurrent present contemporary chamber music for piano, percussion, bass clarinet and electronics including Thomas Meadowcroft’s Walkman Antiquarian, John Cage’s Credo in US, a new work by Perth composer Olivia Davies and more.

Walkman Antiquarian challenges our concept of obsolescence, exploring creative possibilities in the intersection of new and old. Thomas Meadowcroft’s centrepiece work (of the same name) employs much-loved but increasingly historical technologies of sound playback the turntable and the walkman, while John Cage’s Credo in US prominently features the humble transistor radio. Against these are set a modern-day interpretation of 12th Century polyphonist Perotin’s Beata Viscera by Lachlan Skipworth, and a brand new work by West Australian composer Olivia Davies. Intercurrent’s renowned and fiery virtuosity promise a unique and stimulating musical adventure.

Presented by Tura and the UWA Conservatorium of Music.
