Bassist and composer Linda May Han Oh’s collaborative composition, Ephemeral Echoes, explores the transient nature of things – from the flickers of a firefly or the spectacle of the Aurora Borealis/Australis, to planned obsolescence. Presented as part of Perth Festival.
Singer-songwriter Lior and composer Nigel Westlake join forces with Dr Lou Bennett AM to create a tribute to the life and actions of Aboriginal activist William Cooper. An extension of Lior and Westlake’s first creation together, the song cycle Compassion, this work reflects a real-life story embodying the very virtue Compassion examined.
Lisa Illean is an Australian composer of acoustic and acousmatic music, based in the UK. Her music has been praised for “exquisite quietness” and “compelling stillness”. She has conceived arcing, stilling, bending, gathering for strings, piano and electronics. The work reflects on an ongoing desire through human history for moments of kinship and tenderness that counter the immensity of the world we inhabit.
DarkQuiet is a new architectural sound and light installation by artists Madeleine Flynn, Jenny Hector and Tim Humphrey, created with the International Dark Sky Alliance, Science Gallery Melbourne, and producer Erin Milne. Various events featuring the installation took place in November and December 2022.
Nightfalls celebrates Mark Atkins' unique gifts as a poet, storyteller, singer-songwriter and didgeridoo virtuoso in a semi-staged program, imagined as a gathering around a campfire, and created in collaboration with composer Erkki Veltheim, dramaturg Ruth Little and lighting designer Niklas Pajanti.
Driven by Matthias’ propulsive percussive playing, and made in collaboration with a team of leading designers, Tethering is a visceral, trashy and fun exploration of the materiality of sound.
In her new work, MotherTongue, MotherLand, Sunny Kim has assembled a stellar cast of musicians: Aviva Endean, Gelareh Pour and Mindy Meng Wang. At the heart of their work is a poetic response to motherhood referencing the artists' and their mothers' experiences of migration, longing, belonging, joy, and pain.
This one-time event, part of Sydney Opera House’s UnWrapped series, featured Barton collaborating with exceptional colleagues Simon Barker and Scott Tinkler, alongside other new works featuring Veronique Serret and Chloe Kim.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we meet and create, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
