Wah at Australian National Academy of Music

  • South Melburn Town Hall 210 Bank St South Melbourne, VIC, 3205 Australia (map)

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.
