As humans we are bound to each other and to the earth we live on.

We make music to connect and explore the complexities and contradictions of our existence. Through the medium of electroacoustic music, the ‘EarthBound’ program asks us to delve deep into the complexity of our relationship with our environment amidst the growing catastrophe of climate change.

The program brings together female-identifying composers and performers from far-flung parts of the globe, from South Korea to Armidale, Melbourne and Western Sydney. Works from Unsuk Chin, Ros Bandt, Donna Hewitt and Felicity Wilcox will be presented alongside a newly commissioned work created in collaboration between Veronique Serret and early career artist Emma Harlock.

Featuring Alana Blackburn on the recorder, Veronique Serret on violin and Emma Harlock on bass guitar, the program includes Unsuk Chin's Double Bind? for violin and live electronics. This extraordinary work grapples with the tension between the physical and human-altered - a wildly imagined perspective on the musician as an instrument and agent of change.

Program

  • Unsuk Chin - Double Bind? for violin and live electronics 

  • Felicity Wilcox - Currawong Call (2021) for violin and tape

  • Ros Bandt - ReGrowth? for recorder and electronics

  • Donna Hewitt - Permafrost for recorder and electronics

  • Emma Harlock - Concept: FUTURE for electric bass and live electronics

  • Emma Harlock and Veronique Serret new work for violin, electric bass and/or electronics.
