March Static: ANAM and Speak Percussion

Speak Percussion joins forces with ANAM and community musicians in a major percussive take-over of the east wing of the Abbotsford Convent.

Audiences will be led on a literal journey around the Convent through mobile-massed wind and percussion ensembles led by Australia's leading composers Liza LimThomas Meadowcroft, Cathy Milliken and Damien Ricketson.  

"COVID-19 has amplified, in sometimes both painful and enriching ways, our understanding of social-distancing, home isolation and connecting with our local community and events on a global scale. The March Static project responds to these raw shared experiences, through works of scale and intimacy and by breaking open the ways in which audiences gather and connect with composers, performers and spaces."
– Eugene Ughetti, Artistic Director of Speak Percussion

Audiences will experience six works within the program across various Abbotsford Convent spaces, including large scale works and smaller, intimate chamber works.
