Glass Percussion Intermezzo - Federation Square - from January 10

Forwarded from Myles Mumford:

This is an invitation to my latest project with the Glass Percussion,
Intermezzo. This site-specific project will be presented FREE to the
public between Jan 10 and Feb 2, 2008. Over 1400 hand-blown glass
objects will be installed in the Fracture Gallery (a 47 metre glass
wall) within the Atrium of Federation Square, Melbourne.

Live performances will be given every Thursday, Friday and Saturday
at 9:15pm (dusk) - 10pm. These include 2 percussionists playing the
Glass live from within the Fracture Gallery. All the acoustic glass
sound will be processed live and diffused through a 16.4 channel
surround sound system in the Atrium.

The glass-installation will be accompanied daily by a 65 minute sound-
installation of music created using only the same glass objects as
it’s source material.

Eugene Ughetti – co-director, composer, percussionist
Elaine Miles – co-director, glass artist, installation
Matthias Schack-Arnott – percussionist
Myles Mumford – live electronics
Michael Hewes – sound diffusion, sound engineer
Richard Vabre – lighting designer

If we don’t see you on opening night, Thursday Jan 10, then it would
be great to see you at one of the other 11 performances across the
season. This event will be appealing to both contemporary arts goers
and children alike so please spread the word!
