Fanfares @ Art Gallery of NSW
As part of the Art Gallery of NSW’s Resonate Series the fanfares are now ushering guests to take their seats in the old courts amongst the classic masters and they sound great!
The fanfares are reaching new audiences at the Art Gallery with the recent broadcasts of Sam Weller’s Fanfare for Chaos at the Songmakers concert. On November 20, Elise Bergman’s Sails for Sydney Harbour will be broadcast at the final concert of David Malouf with Bass Extravaganza.
The double bass duo, Kees Boersma and Kirsty McCahon bring innovative programming to the sonorous music of their beautiful instrument. The duo has moved the writer David Malouf to offer them a collaboration in this concert.
Fanfares alive …
We are pleased to present the 2016-17 Fanfares recorded by the Australian Youth Orchestra. Our sound engineer Andre Shrimski has been working closely with the composers incorporating their final edits and tweaks. Hear the eight works by young composers aged 13-21 years, hear here.
Zombies coming soon …
Artology is pleased to partner with ATYP’s annual foundation project. This year offering Chrysoulla Markoulli the opportunity to extend her composition skills and work with sound designer Steve Francis. The play Fight with all your might the Zombies of tonight is by award-winning playwright Matthew Whittet and is a funny and irreverent take on growing up and not becoming one of the pack.
Alex is a 12 year old with an eagle eye and a wit to match. She’s been watching everyone at school for the last few days and something’s not right. The writing’s on the wall. She knows what’s happening. They’re all turning into zombies. November 9-19, ATYP Studio One
