Taxidermy

SPECIAL EVENT

A concert for flute, percussion and piano featuring works by young female composers.

For this special ANAM project, guest artist Tim Munro shows how simple tools can be used in amazing ways...
- In composer Juri Seo’s hands, three humble tubes of metal, each with a single, drilled hole, make an unearthly “wah-wah” noise
- For Caroline Shaw's Taxidermy, humble flower pots sing
- A half dozen tuning forks sizzle and hum in Amy Kirsten’s work
- And once the lid is taken off a piano, six musicians perform musical surgery for Mayke Nas’ Twelve Hands
After all of this strange, man-made chaos, seek comfort in Australian composer Alice Chance’s Comfort Music.

SEO Wah for percussion trio
SHAW (So I hear you’re into) taxidermy for percussion quartet
KIRSTEN They might be giants for flute and vocalising percussion quartet
NAS Twelve Hands
CHANCE Comfort Music

Alice Chance's Comfort Music exists in several formats, but this version was created especially for Tim Munro and this concert. Alice Chance explains: "Comfort Music attempts to sound like what comfort food tastes like. Soothing, resonating 5ths and 4ths embrace the audience member as if they’ve plunged into a warm bath. Comfort Music doesn’t necessarily demand active listening. Rather, it holds the space and invites you to cherish a moment of comfort and safety, wrapped in a soft blanket of sound as little chirps from surrounding devices bejewel the air. Those wishing to do so can add to the music via a simple link accessible on most devices with wifi or data capabilities.” alicechance.com/comfort-music
