So Long Country

WORK IN PROGRESS | MUSIC

With contrasting playing traditions and an eclectic collection of instruments, the musicians assemble their collective memory to make songs from an imaginary place in the future, formed by rising sea levels. Part satire, part fantasy, part farewell, So Long Country brings forth an imagined future and makes valuable comment on current globalised music-making practices.

Featuring Australia’s own Speak Percussion, who are described by the New York Times as "virtuosic and adventurous", this exciting collaboration also includes composer Thomas Meadowcroft, Malaysian master of traditional Kelantan instruments Kamrul Hussin, and special guests.
