TRANSDUCER

Major electro-acoustic work exploring the microphone as sonic object

SmallerTransducerShot

A collaboration between new media artist Robin Fox and Speak’s Artistic Director, Eugene Ughetti, TRANSDUCER is a major electro-acoustic spatialised performance work. TRANSDUCER places the microphone at the centre of the creative investigation and redefines its function and potential as an expressive musical object. Kinetic sculptures and unorthodox modes of transduction form the musical material of this virtuosic and conceptual Australian work. TRANSDUCER repurposes microphone technology to tease out the inextricable fundamentals of creating, reproducing and manipulating electronic and acoustic signal.

Fluvial

Large-scale kinetic percussion solo

Fluvial Horizon 4:3

Matthias Schack-Arnott performs Fluvial, a solo work for a large-scale kinetic percussion instrument. A horizon of quivering metals, glass and stone are used to create a work of shimmering textural extremes. ‘As thought provoking as it is beautiful’ (Realtime/Matthew Lorenzon), Fluvial draws its inspiration from tidal movement, currents, transformation and ritual. Informed by Matthias’ training as a classical percussionist, the work combines rigorous musical processes with an immersive installation environment. Objects are suspended en masse above an eight-meter bed of granite, metal and water. Glass bottles quiver and collide, overlapping metal tubes create glistening harmonic swells as wind chimes hover and sway over the instrument.

This year’s Emerging Artist Program focussed on three facets of contemporary music making: electro-acoustic practice, sound spatialisation & improvisation. In July, eight Emerging Artists worked under the guidance of UK composer/performer Richard Barrett, sound diffusion experts from SIAL Sound Studios and Speak Percussion to develop a program of new works. Now, we are excited to preset the startling results. This concert is FREE. Bring your friends!

CIRCUIT – European Tour

Speak takes it’s electro-acoustic project to Eastern Europe & Scandinavia

Tour photo Lo Res (4-3)

In CIRCUIT, Speak Percussion creates a surreal musical world in which the central instruments are re-purposed machines, electronic objects and antiquated technology. Reel-to-reel tape machines, fluorescent lights and sampler keyboards are used alongside a gamut of percussion instruments.

CIRCUIT features several recently commissioned works by the leading next generation of Australian composers. Shlomowitz’s Popular Contexts Vol 6 uses samples of roaring crowds, fractured techno grooves and airplane engines to create hyper-stylised musical words. Meadowcroft’s Cradles has been making waves in the international new music community for its combination of pop infused synths with revox machine antics. Pateras’s Hypnagogics dwells in the state between wakefulness and sleep, while Løffler’s ‘b’ explores the sound of flickering neon lights combined with electrical currents passing through the performer’s bodies.

Fluorophore Residency

 Two new percussion quartets developed with leading Danish composers

Flurophore

Speak has been supported by the Danish Arts Council’s DIVA Residency to undertake a 2 week residency in Copenhagen, hosted by Klang Festival. This will see Speak working with two leading Danish composers, Juliaana Hodkinson and Simon Løffler, who are both writing new percussion quartets that explore the synchronicity between sound and light.

Simon Løffler has almost completed a new work for 10 fluorescent lamps, loose jack cable and a triangle that has already won him an award at the 2014 Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt. This work will be further refined in rehearsal with Speak and then premiered at the Connect Festival (Malmø) on 21 November 2014. For info on the concert, click here.

Juliana Hodkinson will be writing a new work which takes as it’s basis the intimate sound world of matches being lit. This fragile sound world will be amplified, and augmented with theatrical undercurrents.

Pianos Plus Percussion

An old piano decays in the former City Methodist Church in Gary, Indiana

Bartok’s Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion is one of his most exhilarating masterworks. In this collaboration between Melbourne based Speak Percussion and Adelaide based Soundstream Collective, homage is explored as a form of memory. Bartok and Tristram Cary pay tribute to J.S. Bach through their transcriptions of his music, while Paul Grabowsky and James Rushford pay homage to Bartok in festival premiere performances. A visceral performance on this dynamic combination of instruments.

Richard Barrett Percussion Portrait

Speak works with one of the UK’s most unique voices in composition & improvisation

Barrett credit Luis Neuenhofer CROPPED

In this special once-only event, Speak Percussion and SIAL Sound Studios (RMIT) presents the work of Richard Barrett, one of the UK’s most impressive composers. Featuring the composer himself live on electronics, this tour de force is not be missed. Barrett’s visceral music is informed by science, ethics and literature, and explores the utter extremes of instrumental performance.

Richard Barrett is internationally active as both composer and improvising performer, having collaborated with many of the world’s leading performers.  He studied composition principally with Peter Wiegold, is based in Berlin and currently teaches at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague, having previously held a professorship at Brunel University in London.  His long-term collaborations include the electronic duo FURT, composing for and performing with the ELISION contemporary music group, and regular appearances with the Evan Parker Electro-Acoustic Ensemble.  His work as composer and performer is documented on over 25 CDs, including five discs devoted to his compositions and seven by FURT.  Recent projects include CONSTRUCTION, a two-hour work for twenty-three performers and three-dimensional sound system, premiered by Elision in November 2011.

SEAP 2014: Barrett

rmit-design-hub-2

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN! Click here to download yours.

Speak Percussion is excited to present this year’s Emerging Artist Program with a focus on composition, improvisation & performance within electro-acoustic music.  We have brought together a stellar team to lead this program, including members of the Spatial Informational Architecture Laboratory from RMIT University, leading British composer / improviser Richard Barrett (Evan Parker Electro-Acoustic Ensemble, FURT), local percussion virtuoso Peter Neville (Convener of Percussion, Australian National Academy of Music & Head of Percussion/Chair, New Music Studio, Melbourne Conservatorium Of Music) and Speak’s Artistic Director Eugene Ughetti.  

The program is open to 18-28 year old percussionists and drummers who are advanced in both notated and improvised musical contexts, as well as emerging composers with a pre existing track record of working with percussion and/or electronics.

Composition

The emerging composers will each workshop and develop 2 new electro-acoustic percussion pieces – one using conventional notation, the other structured improvisation – under the guidance of Richard Barrett and entire team of mentors.  Barrett’s own compositional practice spans complex notational methods and structured improvisation, and varies from large scale orchestral works (BBC Symphony Orchestra) to chamber ensemble pieces (ELISION Ensemble).  Lawrence Harvey and the SIAL Sound Studios team will provide the composers with expert tutelage in live sound spatialisation and audio processing techniques. Composers will be provided access to state-of-the-art technology (3 x rooms of 8-channel diffusion systems in a cube formation) which their compositions will be built around. Lawrence will deliver a series of lectures covering some of the master works of electroacoustic music with an emphasis on the percussion repertoire. They will also have the opportunity to direct their own rehearsals and receive one-on-one time with the mentors including expert advice about writing for percussion.

Improvisation

The participating emerging artists will take part in a series of intensive workshops on group improvisational techniques lead by Richard Barrett and Eugene Ughetti.  The workshops will focus on the creation of improvised works that move between highly structured and open-ended forms, and will allow the participants to perform alongside the mentors.

Performance

The emerging artists will be tutored in the performance of complex notated music, with a focus on the music of Richard Barrett.  Peter Neville will guide the participants on learning new notational systems and in ensemble playing. Speak Percussion will present a series of open-rehearsals of new pieces by Richard Barrett, which the emerging artists will attend. The 2014 Emerging Artist Program will culminate in the recording and performance of six new electro-acoustic works by the emerging composers on the 20th of December 2014.


Program

WEEK 1 & 2 (14 – 25 July)
Workshops, lecture demonstrations, creative development on the new compositions and open-rehearsals of new Richard Barrett pieces by Speak Percussion.

WEEK 3 (15 – 20 December)
Rehearsals and recordings of emerging composers works. Public performance at RMIT’s Design Hub.
