MEDITATIVE NEW MUSIC SOUNDSCAPES
WA-based experimentors of sound, Decibel, will undertake a two-week residency with composer and clarinettist Carol Robinson (USA/FR) to develop a new work in the Occam Ocean series by Eliane Radigue (FR). This new work, Hexa II, has been commissioned by Decibel, written collaboratively by Radigue and Robinson, and will be developed and premiered on site in PICA’s acoustically cavernous Central Gallery.
The Occam concert will also feature two other pieces by Radigue, all three an exploration of the interactions between sound, instrument, musician and acoustics. This will be a vastly different Decibel experience as expressive music made of minute and surprising pulsations fills the gallery and reaches into the listener’s psyche.
