The impetus for this Antechamber performance is a response to the campfire environment, not only sonically, but in the way that time is typically felt to be passing (that is, without much awareness or sensitivity). In this sense, the gesture of the piece will be that of an intervention; an invitation to experience the rhythm of time passing with greater depth and acuity. The fire seems to suggest this already.
Antechamber is a music series that takes place in various venues across Melbourne. The focus of the series is to present works that demonstrate creative approaches to composition. Pieces presented in these programs often are initiated by a concept, which are then realised through previously unexplored methods. This means that the sounding and experiential outcome of these works is often unknown, and so these works are often constructed in a way that embraces the possibility of unknown outcomes. Curated by Simon Charles, featuring performances by Matthias Schack-Arnott, Matthew Horsleym, Simon Charles and Reuben Lewis.
