Arguments, babble, comments, dialogue, expressions: its only talk. Words have often driven music and this concert brings together recent local and international examples of “text in music”. European sensations Jennifer Walshe and Cathy van Eck highlight the surreal possibilities of observation and declamation, Brisbane-based Vanessa Tomlinson and Eric Griswold explore memory and anticipation, while locals Annika Moses and Lindsay Vickery bring the personal and the political dimensions of words. The concert also features a new work by mercurial Paris/Perth performance artist Emmanuelle Zagoria.

ARTISTS

GreyWing are:

Lindsay Vickery – clarinet
Jameson Feakes – guitar
Catherine Ashley – harp
Kirsten Smith – flute
Special Guest: Ben Stacy – percussion

GreyWing focuses on new Australian music and environmental music and has presented over 30 premieres since their debut performance in April 2016. An important thematic strand in the GreyWing concerts is music featuring field recordings, images and other data from nature and the environment. Earlier this year GreyWIng released two albums on the local label Tone List reflecting these two aspects of their work Lines of Flight and nature forms i. In July GreyWIng together with Breaking Waves and Gerygone launched a monthly site-specific project Limited Hangout: in the field featuring works by local composers responding to and performed in specific the sonic/physical environments.

GreyWing

“GreyWing Ensemble is known for presenting works with pointed social commentary, and though none of the pieces was overt in this regard, by performing works of non-European composers, championing female artists and commissioning new music from Western Australian composers, their bold programming is a positive shift in the Perth concert scene.” (Cool Perth Nights)
