Good friend Micheal O’Dwyer and I were asked to contribute to this years Light in Winter festival with a composition for the federation handbells. For four nights 4/10/11/17 in june we will perform our 10 minute piece in federation square melbourne to kick of the evenings festivities. We use cello Bows and natural elements from the area to activate the bells and present a less traditional method of the bells acoustic capabilities.
As Michael puts it:
“Tonight we summon elements of Birrarung Marr’s past, present and future, amplifying the fluidity of time into shards of shimmering magic.”
We had our first performance last night and it was smooth and fun, the radiant line exhibition co incising is a must see, very impressive metal structure and light work.
