Quarry Music

Ross Bolleter & Anthony Cormican | 26 October, 7:30pm

A celebration of ruined piano to evoke a vanished realm.

After 1945, West Subiaco was the site of a vast quarry where US forces discarded their jeeps and armoured cars at the end of WWII. In time, the quarry became a rubbish dump. Quarry Music evokes a past buried beneath manicured school ovals and raises community awareness concerning the forgotten scavengers, deadly detritus, and kids at risk. In this 5.1 surround sound and live ruined piano performance, the artist will re-create the old dump and its military decay, all now buried, using ruined pianos to convey the spirit of the dump.

This will be renowned Perth composer/performer Ross Bolleter’s final public performance.
