Scale Variable 2017

Adventures in Sound

The Scale Variable New Chamber Music Series returns for 2017. The Scale Variable Series comprises of four concerts representing new chamber music from Western Australia and around the world. This is the perfect opportunity to sample a taste of the new and unexpected from composers of the modern era and the performers who render their work.

The Series begins in May with a landmark performance at the Subiaco Arts Centre from
Russia’s foremost contemporary chamber ensemble the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble consisting of some of the best Russian musicians specialising in modern music.

Concerts 2 and 3 will retreat to Studio Underground at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia for an up close look and listen to two Perth based new music collectives; Greywing, led by composer/performer Lindsay Vickery, and Intercurrent, curated by leading WA-based musicians Louise Devenish, Lachlan Skipworth and Ashley Smith. These will share programs of works from local, national and international composers performed by a cross section of specialist Perth based performers.

The final concert in November, set in the intimate space of the Rehearsal Room 1 at the State Theatre Centre, sees the return of Soundstorm curated by Polish born composer Dominik Karski.
