BackStage Thursdays #1: Radio Signals

  • The Newsagency 74-76 Pyrmont Bridge Road Annandale, NSW, 2038 Australia (map)

Backstage Music has your Thursdays covered this October with a triptych of musical offerings. It all kicks off on Oct 17 with RADIO SIGNALS:

Cathy Milliken + Jane Sheldon + Lamorna Nightingale + Fiona Hill

Lewis Mosley + Sam Weller + Charlie Sundborn

We don’t often take a retrospective look at music here at Backstage, but we’re pleased to be celebrating the music of Karlheinz Stockhausen and Luciano Berio alongside new works by Cathy Milliken and Fiona Hill in this program. Stockhausen and Berio were pioneers of electronic music and electro acoustic music in the 1960s and 70s. Australian oboist and composer, Cathy Milliken worked with both composers during her time as a member of Ensemble Modern and this concert provides an opportunity to hear music from first hand experience of these composers at work. Both Berio and Stockhausen were known for combining the human voice with electronics and pre-recorded material and Fiona Hill’s piece Imago, takes the technology further, using Max patch technology to integrate electronic, pre-recorded, computer generated and live acoustic sounds.
