Filament at the Melbourne Recital Centre

Filament takes you beyond musical instruments to a sound world where any physical object in existence can be musicalised. Set in the Primrose Potter Salon of the Melbourne Recital Centre, Filament is a showcase of four powerful compositional voices from around the globe. Speak Percussion presents Australian premieres of works by Cathy Van Eck (NL),  Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri (GR) and Andreas E. Frank (DE) for electronics, bespoke instruments and simple every day objects – a plant, a hairdryer, a quartet of windshield wiper motors, as well as the world premiere of Sydney-based composer Josephine Macken’s (AU) new trio. An enthralling event that pushes the bounds of musical philosophies and unexpected sound worlds.

Please join us for a post-concert panel discussion featuring leading thinkers and music makers to shed further light on the discipline of Post Instrumental Practice.
