THESE COMPULSIVE BEHAVIOURS
10 ORCHESTRAL WORKS CREATED BY JAMES HULLICK FOR BOLT AND ARCKO SYMPHONIC ENSEMBLE
Featuring the show Re:Evolution composed with the Amplified Elephants, Wrought Glacial created by Pansy Nulgit and Hullick and The Ballad of Emily Rose developed with the Noise Scavengers.
As the audience begin to take their seats, a man stands onstage, silently composing music notation. Within the hour, he’s joined onstage by an orchestra – the musicians seize their freshly minted sheet music and begin to play, even as the composer works furiously to complete the piece. Here the gathering orchestra heralds a key feature of this project: the celebration of sonic communities.
Thus begins the first concert of a remarkable music event conceived by maverick Australian composer James Hullick (Bruchlandung). A turbulent succession of ten experimental chamber orchestra works, These Compulsive Behaviours is a series of fractured soundscapes crafted as a gift of love for Hullick’s partner, Charlotte Bolcskey. In articulating this gift of love Hullick has included a range of sonic creators in developing some of the works: Re:Evolution has been composed with the Amplified Elephants — musicians with an intellectual disability; Wrought Glacial — created in partnership with Kimberley Elder and singer Pansy Nulgit; and The Ballad of Emily Rose — developed with car-jacking teens from the Noise Scavengers.
Playing with form and tone, Hullick and his sonic communities reframe unorthodox noise art as romantic devotion, weaving cut-up electronica with snippets of text, slow-melting glacial blocks of sound and the play of colour in darkness.
