Masters of Modern Sound

  • Art Gallery of New South Wales Art Gallery Road Sydney, NSW, 2000 Australia (map)

Experience art like never before in an after dark sonic sensation. Journey through the Gallery and encounter leading Australian and international composers, musicians, sound designers, and performers from celebrated dance theatre company Force Majeure. 

Experience commissioned sound design from long time David Lynch collaborator, Dean Hurley (Twin Peaks: The Return) and encounter the ambient music of William Basinski & Lawrence English with an Australian-exclusive live performance of Selva Oscura. 

Witness original movement and interventions created by Force Majeure’s Danielle Micich. Discover the experimental electronic music of Italian minimalist Caterina Barbieri and Western Sydney maximalist Del Lumanta. 

Pause amid art and absorb the meditative sounds of Chris Abrahams (the Necks), before stepping into our major summer exhibition 'Masters of Modern Art from the Hermitage' for a live performance of newly commissioned work by Corin Ileto, Becky Sui Zhen and Casey Hartnett inspired by Kandinsky, Picasso and Matisse.
